An invitation to rest | He tono kia okioki

This year marks 24 years of sharing Restorative Yoga. The practice continues to be a deep process of learning, insight, discovery, creativity, innovation and co-creation. What a radical and sensible idea that one would gather in community to deeply rest. I have been blessed over the years to have a group of dedicated ‘resters’ as well dear colleagues and trainees who year after year continue to evolve the practice with me. This conscious rest practice continues to be a deep resource for my own physical, mental, emotional and energetic well being.

About Volume One | Pukapuka Tahi

Writing about Restorative Yoga seems a natural evolution of sharing and making the practice more accessible. I’m not what I would call a natural writer, however I do have a passion for gathering a few words and capturing the essence of what rest is for me with the support of a wonderful team of collaborators, Todd Eyre with imagery, Suzanne Day with vision and design and Sandy Farquhar my writing mentor and editor.

So in honour and celebration of this deeply nourishing practice I have co-created a first journal ‘An Invitation To Rest | He Tono Kia Okioki’, somewhere I can seasonally offer my ideas about the nature of rest, and share my joy and love of rest as a life practice.

About Volume One | Pukapuka Tahi – this journal includes 24 pages which share some of my journey with rest and Restorative Yoga, essential principles of practice, a five part personal practice and some musings.

Who is it for?

Lovers of conscious rest, Restorative Yoga and moss! I have intentionally created a practice which requires easily accessible props like bed pillows, blankets and a scarf so there’s ease. Todd has I feel captured the essence, beauty, simplicity and spaciousness of the practices. It’s not so much a ‘how to do’ – more that the images, words and design literally invite you to rest.

It is my hope that the journals and accompanying resources may inspire, be in service to, and companion your rest.
