 a sweet retreat of remarkable rest

Do you feel tired, wired and find it hard to stop? You are not alone.

Our grind culture won't offer you a pause, but we will!

grind culture is violent and exhausting

it praises work, not rest

can leave you feeling run down, hyper tired or wired, tense in your body and sick in the stomach. 


and lost friendships, missed job opportunities, fear of travel, loss of self. 

and if not understood or regulated, can leave you feeling lost and burned out.

but there is a way to come back into balance.


rest is resilience

we will restore

tend and befriend

rest and digest


we'll guide your mind and body into a healing state through iRest yoga nidra

iRest meditation is simple, trauma sensitive guided meditation that renews energy, heals pain and takes you into  deeper states of awakening or sleep 

And you can even sneak in some sleep!

rest is good medicine



because we are mammals

dorsal rest is important for coping with on-going trauma and stress

Dorsal rest is a state of safe dorsal vagus activation or in other words, safe down time. A safe stillness, rather than a shutdown dissociated stillness.

In this mixed state, we feel low energy or immobilization that is tolerable and not distressing.

This state allows your body to rest and heal and absorb nutrition, to access meditative or spiritual states, and to sleep. 


on retreat you'll explore these simple yet remarkable restful yoga practices

The vayu's    

 the balancing fives winds of life force

Anxiety and depression, are often the result of an imbalance in how your life force flows.

an invitation to experience the pleasure and enjoyment of moving with music, playfulness and connection with others

you could join in, watch, or regulate in a way that suits your energy.

you don’t need to be a dancer to enjoy this, it is natural human potential everyone can access.

Angie Cowan welcomes us into her Heartspace residence to be deeply nourished and share a meal around our intentional community dining table.

Kendra supports your experience by helping you make the choices you need over the weekend, to feel well regulated and Self aware.

I came back more reintegrated as we are already integrated beings as Mohan says ... we just get stuck in our heads more than our bodies.  

Being a highly sensitive person I take in a lot of energy from
Others in my work and personal life
This gave me a chance to reintegrate my body and mind through the breath and movement

About your retreat leader Kendra

Yoga, particularly meditation, has offered me a continuous, sustainable pathway towards self awakening, compassion and wellness. As a Trauma Sensitive Yoga Therapist, I am aware of the mental health crisis we are in, and offer retreats as a way of immersing ourselves in the 'inner calling and connection' quite often left behind in the busyness of the world.

I acknowledge and am grateful for my trauma aware teachers; Dr Stephen Porges, Deb Dana, Dr Gabor Mate, Sarah Ball, Dave Emerson, Jenn Turner, Thomas Hubel and Kathy Kain.


You are worthy of rest. Come join us.

Use your initials only then

We have only 17 places available on the day.

The trauma sensitive approach helped me feel comfortable and calm which helped clear my mind. Retreating from the everyday was a real bonus with time to reflect, to think and be still. Heartspace Retreat participant
