You are invited to take a restful journey with me.


Use the most restful tools that yoga offers to rest, relax and sleep better.

  • You have been waiting for yoga created specifically for chronic pain and fatigue
  • You know that calming the central nervous system a vital part of managing fibromyalgia (and anyone struggling with chronic stressors)
  • You need a chance to relax, decompress and focus on yourself for a moment
  • You want to learn a type of yoga that is accessible to almost everyone


Are you stuck in the cycle of exhaustion, insomnia, inability to relax, pain and anxiety?

Have you forgotten what it feels like to experience deep rest?

Our society wears exhaustion like a badge of honor. But we can't outrun the legacy we are creating for our bodies for long.

Research is showing us that yoga can help us to reduce pain, increase energy, improve sleep, decrease anxiety, help us breathe better and calm the central nervous system - let me teach you these tools so that you can utilize them wherever and whenever you need them.

Going even deeper restorative yoga invites us to take complete rest.


What are the benefits of restorative yoga?

  • Total relaxation of mind and body
  • Helps us to tune into our body
  • Enhances flexibility
  • Improves our capacity for healing (it was designed by a well known yoga teacher for when people were injured to help them heal faster)
  • It can be done by almost everyone
  • Balances and soothes the central nervous system

What are the benefits of a balanced central nervous system?

  • Better sleep
  • Less pain
  • Reduced anxiety
  • Relaxation
  • Good digestion
  • Heal well
  • Have enough energy
  • Less brain fog

Do you miss these?


When does it start?

Right now!! It is all on your timeline, do what you can, when you can, from the comfort of your home.


Do I have to keep up?

No! You will have lifetime access so don't worry if you want to spend longer on a section (the pose library and the bedtime sections are quite long).


Do I need special props?

I practice in my lounge using household props specifically to show you what it will be like when you practice. Cushions/pillows/blankets etc. should all be available in your house.


What Can You Guarantee?

Let’s be real: The level of benefit depends on the amount of effort you put in. I can give you the tools, the information and support, but I cannot do the work for you.

I am a coach and yoga teacher, not a medical professional and I can’t guarantee more than that I will make the best resources I can, come alongside you and help you do the work – and I will do this! I have created the best content possible to equip you on your journey. Because that is the most anyone can do. Day to day, it’s on you.

A note - this program is not meant to diagnose or treat you. That is between you and your medical team. My work is meant to equip you to take control of your journey so that you reach your definition of thriving as fast as possible.


What If I am Unhappy?

This is designed with you in mind, if you genuinely give it a go, I believe you will see benefit. If you feel that it is not for you within the first 30 days you can request a refund. No harm, no foul.


Disclaimer, who's in charge?

You are! You are always in charge of your body. Please check in with your medical team. Continually check in with yourself. And ask questions. This is a course not a live class, and as such I cannot see you, except for what you share. Plus, even in a class the teacher doesn't know what you are experiencing so you are always in charge.


Do I need to check with my physical therapist/doctor?

Yes please, you do need to be cleared to exercise. It is a good idea to run the idea of doing yoga by your medical professional if you are dealing with current symptoms.

  • Will learn about why restorative yoga is so helpful and how it can help balance the central nervous system and why we should care about that
  • Tap into the central nervous system using the special tools yoga offers
  • Learn some key poses (you can use these as stand alone tools/classes)

  • Look at our mindful bedtime routine and how restorative yoga fits here
  • Yoga for flares

  • Relax with delicious restorative poses and classes and specially designed meditations.
  • Get lifetime access and all updates happen automatically

And has the potential to save you hundreds of dollars in physical treatments (see BONUS download for this tip sheet!)

All available from your home (or where ever you are), when your energy and time allows.

You can't really put a value on the feeling of being able to drop into profound rest. What would it be worth to enjoy movement again? If you could improve your sleep, pain or fatigue even just a little? Priceless? Me too!

So take advantage and join us now!
