R E S T
Rest has increasingly become something that we avoid and leave until we are tired, yet if we learn to embrace it, rest can offer us an ability to hold the complexities of life in a light, embodied way.
Now more than ever our nervous system wants to reclaim our natural state of calm and grounding, from states of trauma to which Dr Gabor Mate describes as the 'myth of normal'.
Rest offers us the experience of deeper ease and reflection, helping us to align with our deeper truths around holding and suffering.
WEEKLY GROUP CLASS IN BRADDON
Over 6 weeks, we'll gather each Wednesday night to practice Zen.
An eBook to journal in and record your experiences
learn to befriend your breathing
to quieten your mind
Have you tried faster styles of yoga but realised that’s just not your thing? Or you want to meditate but struggle to sit still?
ZEN RECOVERY practice will become your foundation for embodied self-awareness, not just a set of postures. The Zen Recovery course includes gentle, restorative and embodied movement. This helps you connect to your breath and be more present. Making meditation a lot easier.
The postures and breathing practices are simple, slow and restful. They help you press pause at any time. The supporting online content allows you to dive deeper into the yoga theory and teachings. It’s completely up to you.
What makes Zen Recovery different to other restorative practices?
Zen recovery is unique as it lays down the 5 building blocks for deep healing:
re-balance the nervous system
regulate the breath
quieten the mind
change old narratives
We link these building blocks to 5 poses and 5 related breathing exercises. Each week we'll practice together and during the week, you can make use of the workbook and perhaps the online supportive video content.
The poses and practices are simple and some sections offer a deeper dive into the rich world of yoga theory and philosophy.
You choose how deep you’d like to go.
