Life is stressful. You have a busy life with work, family and many other obligations, not to mention outside stressors like the news and more!!! Somehow your own well-being is always at the bottom of your priority list.

You just keep pushing through to get it all done. Unfortunately this takes a big toll on you and is unsustainable in the long term.

There is another way!

Put your own oxygen mask on first, just like the flight attendants always say. You’ll have more energy and resources to do the things you want and have to do if you put self-care first – and I can show you exactly how to do that in just 30 minutes.

Constructive Rest is a fantastic self-care practice. It doesn’t take much time and you can do it in the comfort of your own home.

Lying down for a few minutes in Constructive Rest helps you to improve your posture without strain, release excess tension, and calm your nervous system so you can be your most efficient, energetic and productive self.

In fact, you can benefit in whatever position is comfortable for you – sitting or lying down.

When you take this time for you, you will feel better and be more fun to be around!

In the words of poet/philosopher David Whyte:

to rest is not self-indulgent,
to rest is to prepare to give the best of ourselves


The half hour was truly meaningful for me, I gained great benefit from it. It is the most relaxed and grounded I have felt in more than a year.
—Andrea Pohland-Davis

Constructive Rest is a lifesaver for me, providing a way to stop and refresh, reset and calm myself during the day – like an “awake power nap”, only better. Constructive Rest is especially beneficial during times of extra stress or a deadline, helping me to clear my head and shed fatigue.
—Becca Ferguson,

I want you to know that YOURS is the ONLY [Constructive Rest talk] I felt thoroughly comfortable with. Your word choice is clear, and truly perfect! Your pacing is consistent, very well considered, and I totally appreciate how magically you create an instructive vacuum of trust. It’s as though You, personally, add a new dimension of support to the supreme discovery of support itself. THANK YOU.
—Jacquelyn Moses, Creative Director, New York, NY

About Imogen

I have been a nationally certified teacher of the Alexander Technique since 2006. I have developed my own unique approach called BodyIntelligence, which integrates mindfulness, posture and self-care, to give my clients practical strategies to relieve and prevent stress and tension. In recent years my work has become more trauma-informed, and my approach has been particularly beneficial to clients suffering from emotional and chronic stress and even trauma.

Constructive Rest is my all-time favorite self-care practice. I created the free 30-Day Constructive Rest Challenge to encourage people to benefit from a regular Constructive Rest practice. I have given hundreds of guided Constructive Rest talks over the years. My clients love it. I hope you will, too!
