In the Rest Module, we’ll journey through the three phases of Daring to Rest™. We begin with the Rest phase to address physical exhaustion. Then we progress to the Release phase to alleviate mental and emotional exhaustion. We’ll conclude with the Rise phase to relieve “life purpose” exhaustion. Each class in this module will include a yoga nidra practice. Participants are encouraged to commit to a daily practice for 21-40 days as they work their way through this module.
Class 1: Rest
Our Rest class introduces yoga nidra, explores rest as self-care, and offers guidance for creating your personal practice.
Class 2: Release
Our Release class explores rest shame, holding opposites, and the fourth state of sleep.
Class 3: Rise
Our Rise class explores “life purpose” exhaustion, whole-person leadership, and cultivating a well-rested lifestyle.
