The nurturing, practical guide to finding rest and calm – even when it feels impossible

'The ideal gift to yourself - or for anyone who needs to feel less stressed.' - Viv Groskop

'A gem of a book' – Bo Forbes

Here's a radical idea:

You deserve rest.

Packed with advice, exercises and support from one of the UK's leading restorative yoga teachers, Rest + Calm is your gentle, wise guide to making space and time to come back home to yourself.

Do you find it hard to give yourself permission to pause? This book will show you how – whether you only have time for three breaths or a five minute rescue posture, or can practise for half an hour. You'll reap the rewards in sounder sleep, happier relationships, better boundaries and improved resilience.

The first part of the book, REST, offers simple, profound, nourishing restorative yoga poses and sequences. The second part, CALM, gives practical tips and techniques for intentional living day-to-day, and emotional rescue for when it feels like you have no time. From the most restorative savasana you've ever experienced, to the benefits of a Switch-Off Sunday, there is something here for even the busiest and most stressed amongst us, and for all levels of yoga ability.

Think of this book as your 'rest toolkit', to dip into whenever you need it. Rest + Calm is designed to be the comforting friend - and the supportive hug - we all need.

Paula Hines is a London-based senior yoga teacher and columnist at OM Yoga Magazine. She is an experienced Advanced Relax and Renew Trainer (restorative yoga teacher). Before qualifying as a yoga teacher in 2011, Paula was a script editor and comedy writer for the BBC.
