Beyond Rest

Complete rest is medicine for the modern world.


Returning to a calm and easeful presence is not only the foundation of traditional Yoga practice but is essential for our wellbeing. The dynamic nature of life can lead to the build up of fatigue, stress and tension in the body and mind.


This immersion will support you by inviting you to gather yourself back from all you give your energy to. Dissolve the unconscious weight of what you have been carrying, bolster yourself with timeless, restorative yogic technology and learn how to create the conditions for rest and recovery.


Combining lunar and restorative yoga, grounding breath work and the practice of guided Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep), this experience has been crafted to explore how we can create the conditions for ultimate release for body, mind and beyond. Expect to emerge deeply rested, recharged and connected to the core of your being.
