iRest – Integrative Restoration
What is iRest Yoga Nidra?
iRest is a transformative form of deep relaxation meditation that restores a sense of balance and wellbeing – no matter what life challenges you are facing. Based on ancient Yoga Nidra practices, it has been adapted for modern day life.
iRest works. It is easy to learn and can be done by everyone. The practice has been integrated into veteran settings, homeless shelters, medical clinics and meditation centres.
Research supports that iRest effectively reduces PTSD, depression, anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain and chemical dependency. As a somatic body-sensing practice it dismantles patterns of the trauma response, breaking the cycle, freeing mind and body. People practicing iRest experience:
- Decreased stress, anxiety, fear and depression
- Improved sleep and decreased insomnia
- An ability to better manage chronic and acute pain
- Healthier interpersonal relations
- Heightened energy levels
- More confidence and joy
