iRest® Yoga Nidra Meditation

(5 CEU’s available from NASW-NM for counselors and social workers)

iRest pairs Western psychotherapy with the ancient practice of yoga nidra meditation. iRest (Integrative Restoration) is an evidence-based transformative practice that leads to psychological, physical, and spiritual healing and well-being. It is done lying down in restful position. iRest is for anyone who wants to start a meditation practice or deepen their existing meditation or spiritual practice into an embodied practice. 

In iRest, you are guided through the layers of the Self – the Physical Body, the Breath and Energy Body, the Emotional Body, the Core Beliefs Body, the Blissful Body, and then to Pure Awareness.

iRest practice is integrative as it heals the various unresolved issues and traumas that are present in your body and mind, and restorative as it enables you to recognize your innate peace of mind that is always present amidst all changing circumstances of life.

iRest provides you with tools to help you relax deeply, release stress, increase resiliency, improve your interpersonal relationships and provide you with greater mastery and control in your life.

iRest nourishes noble qualities such as joy, peacefulness, empathy, forgiveness, patience and lovingkindness toward yourself and others. People who practice iRest report:

• Reduced depression, fear and anxiety
• Greater ability to relax and enjoy life
• Reduced insomnia and levels of stress
• Improved interpersonal relations
• Reduced chronic and acute pain
• Increased inner peace and well-being

In this 8 course series, you will learn and experience not only a meditation, but individual tools that you can integrate into your daily life. There will be a short lecture, group discussion and 35 minutes of experiential practice. The practice is traditionally done lying down with comfortable bolsters and blankets, or you may choose to sit. You will be provided downloadable audio recordings in order to practice at home and a student workbook with a summary of each class.

iRest is an evidence-based, mind-body approach that is the result of thirty years of observation, research and hands-on development by Dr. Richard Miller and associates. For more information on the clinical research, go here.
