We began Rest and Rise as we wished to create an online space for restful morning practices accessible to anyone. Simple yet reliable.
We have created our practices based on what we have found beneficial in our own lives from gentle movement, restorative yoga and yin to breath-work, meditation and journaling.
We hope you enjoy what we offer you as guides as we look forward to holding space for you online.
