Rest Nest is a combination of Restorative Yoga – a deeply relaxing and physically supported practice that provides healing potential for the body and the mind – and Yoga Nidra – a subtle, yet powerful, journey of authentically delivered guided meditation. This combined journey invites us to come home to the true essence of ourselves, and rest in the ever-present peaceful space of the heart. The Rest Nest @ Restoration Yard is open to all. It can be especially useful for those of us experiencing stress, anxiety, tension, overwhelm, low mood, or lack of quality sleep, and for anyone living with or recovering from chronic fatigue, burnout, or illness.
