The pause is as important
as the note
Practices of deep rest, restore and recharge us to activate our innate healing capacity.
Like sun, water, earth and air, and essentially space - rest and pause are vital ingredients
for our beings to flourish. Rest is a healing tonic and a balm to nourish us.
Our bodies, and each system within, should be treated as a whole, being attentive to each part. Like a flower and all its component parts - petals, stem, seeds, leaves and roots, to fully grow, bloom and flourish.
Nourishing rest offers a holistic approach to health and whole being wellbeing, nourishing every part of ourselves, our bodies, our minds and our hearts and for maintained spiritual sustenance.
We need to nourish wellness for every part of us, the whole of our being.
Give yourself permission to rest.

My own experience with the practices shared
& my intention for creating 'Nourishing Rest '
"The soothing, restorative combination of practices of Nourishing Rest and in particular Yoga Nidra is truly a form of gentle yet 'powerful rest.' It has been an invaluable method to support my own wellbeing, pain management and increased energy levels."
Due to a longstanding chronic illness, I sought a practice that would nourish and calm my body from pain and exhaustion and the trauma of being ill. I have found Yoga Nidra to be an invaluable tool in my wellbeing regimen and in combination to apply the complimentary practices. They are a series of restorative and nourishing practices helps to sustain more inner peace, resilience, and to instil more awareness.
For those with chronic illness and chronic fatigue or on a path of recovery from burn-out or convalescing from illness, these practices help to strengthen the body's healing process and support better and deeper restorative rest and to improve quality sleep. I have personally found that by doing these practices regularly, even for short periods helps to sustain more resilience and an increased capacity to cope better with chronic fatigue illness and chronic illness, especially during a bad pain flare up.
These practices are also being done in prisons and for ex-combat military staff to calm the nervous system and to help to cope with PTSD and trauma. Many studies have, and continue to be done, about their profound restorative benefits, particularly meditation, breathing techniques and yoga nidra.
Anyone can benefit from these nourishing practices
for whole being well-being.
