The transformative power of rest workshop with Julie

Res(e)t – The transformative power of rest

Reset your body, mind & nervous system through transformational rest practices


About This Event

True rest is how you take your power back. In the words of Octavia Raheem, author of Pause, Rest, Be “Rest restores a sense of value in the inherent worth of your being”

How challenging / scary / brave is it to be a rest rebel in a world that never lets us switch off? In a world where how much we ‘do’ and externally accomplish is the badge of honour we’ve been taught to run after on a hamster wheel that never stops, why on earth would we value rest?

It’s difficult to grow, transform, create and love when we’re running on fumes. Believe me, I’ve been there more times than I’d like to admit, and I’m still listening and learning and growing in my own rest practices. It’s from this lived experience, as well as learned knowledge, that I offer this important, and deeply healing and transformative afternoon, because I believe we all need it.

In this 2.5 hour workshop you’ll gift your body, mind and nervous system the opportunity to REST and RESET. Proper rest heals your body, regulates your nervous system, and nourishes your soul. It is an abundance practice as necessary as breathing! It opens you up to new possibilities, accelerates transformation, connects you to your innate creativity, and it fills you up so you can show up more fully for yourself and others.

Embrace the experience of slowing down, and explore a range of restful practices lying down and seated including mindfulness, yin yoga, gentle somatic movements, breathwork and yoga nidra meditation. Round off your restful afternoon with a warming cuppa and healthy treats.


Spaces are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
