~ Essential Rest: receive the healing power of stillness~


Come and relax completely and let go of stresses and worries..

Slow down.

Take a break from this busy, over-stimulating, noisy, time-poor world and give yourself the gift of time for you, to calm your mind, body and soul.

Simply rest.

Let me help you to recharge your batteries; ground and calm yourself; take time and space just for you; soothe your nervous system; relax your muscles; and drop into deep calmness and stillness.

…Come to Essential Rest and receive the healing power of stillness.

Why rest?

Every day you’re constantly bombarded with pressure, demands, deadlines, meeting other people’s needs. Your mind ends up in a frantic whirl and your body feels tense. Sometimes you feel SO tired, others wired and you just can’t relax.

You’re human after all! And the human body needs fuel and movement … and rest.

And it’s this third need that all too often gets overlooked in modern life! (And slumping in front of the TV is NOT truly restful by the way!)

If you don’t get enough rest, your body and mind get stuck in a stressed state.

When you are in continual stress-mode, your immune system is suppressed, your digestive system runs poorly, and your muscles are in a constant state of hyper-vigilance getting ready to fight, run or freeze in the presence of danger. (Read more about the hidden costs of stress here.)

Why Essential Rest?

This is why I offer this Essential Rest class: a deeply soothing class where we focus on releasing and relaxing on a deep level and resting in stillness to relieve the stresses and strains of everyday life.

It gives you the chance to slow down and to be guided to reach a deeply relaxed state which can be hard to do for yourself.

Restorative Yoga in Eastleigh

  • Simple movements to release tension from the body
  • Yoga Nidra (aka Yogic Sleep) to take you into states of deep relaxation which have been shown to facilitate the release of the effects of stress; the integration of emotional experiences; and to bring about deep healing and restoration for body and mind.
  • Sound healing.

This practice is slow and mindful and still.  It enables deep rest and relaxation.

“Essential Rest” is perfect for people who can’t commit to a weekly class but value the opportunity to switch off from day to day life and stress, ground themselves and truly relax. Stella is the most lovely and welcoming person and I would absolutely recommend her classes to anyone who needs a bit of comfort and relaxation in their life!” Claire P, Chandlers Ford.

Give yourself some essential rest to restore yourself back to you
and float out into the weekend ready for whatever lies ahead…
