Rest Module

Rest Action Shot 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.

Rest Coaching Add-On: One-on-one coaching with MP

In three 60-minute coaching sessions we’ll address your needs relative to the Rest, Release, and Rise phases. We’ll explore your questions and develop strategies related to alleviating physical exhaustion, mental and emotional exhaustion, and spiritual or “life purpose” exhaustion. These sessions will be most effective after you’ve reviewed the video lesson for each phase. You may choose to schedule a coaching session while you’re in your daily practice of the yoga nidras for each phase, or after you’ve completed all three phases and their associated yoga nidra practices for 7-10 days each.
