Workshop Description

How often do you wake up feeling less than rested? When you have time or permission to rest or nap,
does your mind continue to race or do emotions like guilt prevent you from taking the time? Rest and
sleep are radical acts in a culture that emphasizes how much you get done in a day or a work week. And the human
conditions necessary for rest and sleep are not equal and present for everyone. Yet, without quality and
quantity rest and sleep, physical and mental health suffer. Robin presents science that supports sleep
and rest, explores rest from a yogic perspective, and offers ideas and practices for reclaiming our
right to rest. Bring pillows, blankets and bolsters or whatever helps you feel comfortable in rest.
