Preparing for an online Embodied Rest course
Please find a quiet space where you won’t be disturbed for the duration of the class.
Please wear something comfortable.
You will need to provide your own props for the course. If you have (or would like to purchase) traditional yoga props, including a yoga mat, 2-3 blankets, 1-2 yoga bolsters, 2 yoga blocks and an eye pillow, you can use these.
However you can also use things from around your house, including blankets, pillows, cushions, couch cushions, books and scarves.
When you sign up you will receive a list of what is required, and substitutes from around the home.
What’s the difference between iRest Yoga Nidra and Embodied Rest?
Embodied Rest and iRest Yoga Nidra are similar in that they’re both usually practiced lying down in a supported and comfortable position.
iRest Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation practice and in an iRest class with me, I spend about half the class talking about the theme of the class and facilitating a discussion, and half the class guiding you through a meditation practice.
Embodied Rest is a deep relaxation practice that I developed myself after years of teaching yoga, meditation and relaxation, that draws on the teachings and practices of iRest, mindfulness, Restorative Yoga, and pranayama (breath training). There is very minimal talking in the class and luxury of spacious deep relaxation.
