With this guide, along with the Balance and Breathing guides, you will be invited, while in the context of Constructive Rest, to revise and refine your body map. In order to move with the best coordination and efficiency, it’s important that you have no misconceptions either consciously or unconsciously about your body’s structure, the function of those structures, or their size.

Learn the true arm joints, their location, and how they move. Experience the 3 rotations available with each arm. Enjoy the rhythmic and coordinated movement from the inside edge of your scapulae (shoulder blades) on your back, and your sternoclavicular joints on your frint, all the way out to the tip of your little finger.

Discover the coordinated movement of your leg joints. Clarify where your hip joints are and aren’t! Understand that your knee cap is not your knee and you do not, after all, have an “L” shaped foot!

True rest is not the absence of movement, but the absence of struggle.

Sleep Constellations offers a practical, effective strategy for inviting easy body movements, calm rest, and restorative sleep, naturally!

Sometimes we go to bed and don’t fall asleep as fast or as easily as we’d like. Or we wake up in the middle of the night and can’t go back to sleep. With this audio guide you will learn how to ease mental stress and release physical tension, calming your mind and body into a state of leisure. Tuning in to leisure being invites deep rest and healthy sleep.

How Does Sleep Constellations Work?

  • By cultivating a wholesome embodied awareness.
  • By inviting muscular freedom throughout your body, beginning with the muscles of your neck.
  • By restoring coordination to your breathing by allowing easy, complete exhalations.
  • By playing with an infinite variety of sleep positions perceived by your joint sense: kinesthesia.
  • By enjoying the process of resting while letting go of caring whether you sleep or not.
  • Sleep Constellations is deeply influenced by principles of The Alexander Technique and Body Mapping.

There are two sleep tracks, one 17 minutes long, the other 34 minutes long. Each track gradually fades in volume by 50% from start to finish. The fade scheme are designed to imperceptibly keep pace with the gradual relaxation you will experience as you drift into sleep.

How many Sleep Constellations can you create, and enjoy, in your “night sky?!”

Why wait?! Download or order the CD now and experience Sleep Constellations tonight!

Feedback

Amazing!

“I listened to the recording at the beginning of first flight. Have to say I have never been that relaxed or at ease. I could barely open my eyes. Hoping that I can have a similar time on the 4hr one. You are a miracle worker! I also must say I almost thought there was some celestial being whispering in my ear . . . the hum of engines with your track on top of it transported me somewhere amazing!”
Cara D., Oregon USA

Improved My Trip!

“I recently flew to Japan and the 14-hour flight usually leaves me sore and exhausted. On this past trip, I listened to Constructive Rest On Airplanes and it greatly improved my trip! It helped me relax and feel comfortable in my seat, which is quite a feat for an economy seat on a 14-hour plane ride. All of the Constructive Rest CDs are wonderful ways to relax and improve your “Use” and now there’s a version you can use on airplanes! It’s wonderful!”
Karen W., Japan

Welcome Travel Companion!

“I recently flew to Germany for a summer vacation, and had already spent about 8 hours in airports and walking around before I sat down in the 8-hr flight across the ocean. Needless to say, I started the flight even sore-er and more uncomfortable than usual. Listening to Constructive Rest On Airplanes, I was able to check my posture and had reminders to sit in ways that were -much- more comfortable and painless for my body. The entire audio, beyond reminding me to sit in a way that respects my body better, was very relaxing to focus on after the day’s stress of traveling. This audio is a very useful and welcome travel companion.”
Danielle F., Colorado USA

A Necessity For Any Trip!

“All of the constructive rest CDs provided me with wonderful opportunities to gain awareness of my “Use” and how I carry myself. In particular, Constructive Rest On Airplanes made my traveling experience much more comfortable and relaxing, both mentally and physically. This CD helped me reach my destination calmly and with no stiffness! This is definitely a necessity for any trip.”
Abby D., Massachusetts, USA

The Alexander Technique Edition: Directions



CR Constructive Rest: The Alexander Technique Edition - Directions CD cover artBasic Constructive Rest, plus Alexander’s directions.

Download on iTunes

F. M. Alexander, the forward thinking creator of The Alexander Technique, developed the “directions” as a way to help cooperate with the freedom and ease we experience as we release stress.

When we experience anxiety (the startle response) our neck tenses, our breathing is restricted, and our eyes fix. We also experience a shortening and narrowing of our back muscles. This state also makes us prone to uncoordinated movement and unclear thinking.

Alexander’s directions describe very succinctly  the opposite, releasing state, as in: neck free, head forward and away, back to lengthen and widen. These directions and variations are not meant to be actively done, but just dropped into our consciousness like a drop of lime juice in a glass of water. Our body knows what to do because our default by nature is freedom, not tension. Alexander’s directions are encouragement to our nervous system, that yes, we can be free to ease our neck, lengthen and widen our back, free our breathing . . . essentially regaining our full, empowered stature.
