This summer, Heart of Living Yoga are offering Heart Rest teacher training at the beautiful Turvey Abbey in Bedfordshire, UK. Heart Rest is a very beautiful practice of letting go. It is a completely holistic and subtle style of Peaceful and Restful Yoga as the perfect antidote to modern day stressful living. You will learn life changing techniques to benefit yourself and your students.

Heart Rest is available for all. It is completely effortless, yet enables long lasting effective results of pure relaxation and deep healing for the mind & body. By activating the parasymapathetic nervous system and lowering the stress response, profound healing comes to every level of our being. Through a complete practice of Heart Rest, we become able to discover ever more deeply who we really are. We begin to feel at home, at peace, wherever we are.

This training will be retreat-style, set in a Benedictine monastery with basic & comfortable living quarters. We shall live together, like a family, sharing meals and supporting each other.

During this five day training you will experience, for the benefit of all:

  • Daily Morning Meditation & Gentle Yoga practice
  • Pranayama, Mantra and Mudra for deep healing
  • Heart Wisdom
  • Heart Rest Yoga Training
  • Heart Rest Laboratory giving you a chance to immerse yourself in the teachings

If you like yoga and you like resting, this could be the retreat for you! 

Heart Rest is a very gentle, accessible and life changing yoga practice flowing from the Heart of Living Yoga tradition. Using bolsters, blocks, blankets and pillows, we construct comfortable and supportive yoga nests in which our bodies effortlessly melt into a variety of yoga 'poses'. While our bodies are held in soft yoga nests, awareness can rest within the blessing of the heart. Our whole being is able to soften, relax and let go. Deep healing and profound spiritual growth is the natural result. 

In addition to daily Heart Rest Yoga classes, we will share beautiful heart meditations in the morning and evening, interesting workshops, walks and beautiful kirtans and satsangs as well as having plenty of time for quiet contemplation and connection. 

This very special, silent Heart Rest Retreat will be held at the beautiful Turvey Abbey in Bedfordshire with its gorgeous gardens and historic buildings steeped in prayer and devotion. The silent retreat will be led by Heart of Living Yoga founder Rev Padma Devi.

Please bring:

Your yoga mat, two blankets, two bolsters, two yoga bricks and a yoga belt.
Warm, comfortable, layered clothes for cool mornings and evenings.
You may also wish to bring a notebook and pen to record insights and experiences.
Bedding and towels are provided
