Experience the deep peace of mind and profound rest of iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation as you train in this integrative healing practice that gently encourages the body’s natural healing and awakening responses.
Accessible and effective, research has proven iRest to support the healing process across a broad range of populations and issues, including those with PTSD, chronic pain, sleep issues, high stress, depression, and anxiety.
Developed over 45 years by Richard Miller, PhD, iRest contributes to psychological, physical, and spiritual health, healing, and awakening.
