Are you ready to transform your relationship to rest?

One breath, taken with awareness, can change your day. 

The shift from external to internal focus is not just the key to health (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual health) but it is also the key to un-complicating our lives.

Savasana is the gateway to our inner lives and our inner ease. 

Savasana brings body, emotions, thoughts, and spirit together in the present moment

And when we are present, we feel an effortless clarity about what to do as we live our lives off the mat.

  • Decrease Stress

    Restorative yoga encourages you to deactivate your sympathetic nervous system while activating your parasympathetic nervous system.

  • Learn to Let Go

    Death is the most profound fact of our existence. Savasana (corpse pose) means, for a few minutes, becoming dead to the external world, and alive to the internal world.

  • Support True Health

    Science tells us that deep rest encourages fertility, immunity, digestion, circulatory health and much more.

The Savasana Intensive has fed my mind with insight and wisdom, and my physical body has learnt how delicious it is to completely let go and be held by the props. I have practiced Yoga and Savasana for about 25 years, and I am SO grateful I now have some insight into the power of Restorative Yoga.
