Rest + Restore - Rest Your Heart

  • Carol Neilson 35 Hastings Street Napier New Zealand (map)

Rest your Heart - is the theme for the upcoming Calm Body • Calm Mind restorative yoga class.

It’s been a tumultuous few weeks in our country. One which has gathered us as a nation to take a good look at who we are, what we believe and is it really true? That belief

We have offered our hearts up in service to that inquiry. Felt a collective trauma, a wounding that has left some of us with hearts ragged and bleeding. When hearts are in service to a higher sense of self, we feel, we cultivate compassion, we love what is, we are led by heart, we navigate by heart. We are heartfelt

We also need to take time to rest our hearts. To curl inwards, to let our bodies belly down onto the earth. To let our entire heart-based system restore itself through mindful rest

Imagine two hours of deep, supported restorative rest. The kind of relax that melts your bones & liquifies your mind into no-thingness, your brain waves ebbing & flowing. Your body weight is supported by bolsters, straps, blankets & blocks, your eyes cushioned with a soft eye pillow.

Your senses withdraw and gradually your muscles soften & release, allowing gravity to call them to rest.

Any desire to move fades away and your entire nervous system heaves a sigh of relief as any anxiety, stress or nervousness is extinguished by the soft inhale and exhale of a Calm Mind + Calm Body.

For two hours allow your heart to rest and be nourished.
