Research shows that iRest effectively reduces stress, insomnia, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and post-traumatic stress disorder and enhances joy, equanimity, and well-being in daily life.

  • Learn the 10-step iRest protocol to enhance your personal meditation practice
  • Explore how to integrate the practices of iRest into daily life
  • Foster well-being and resiliency to better manage stress and anxiety
  • Experience BodySensing in movement
  • Practice BreathSensing for increased energy and relaxationLearn to skillfully meet difficult emotions and beliefs in daily life
  • Access an inner resource of well-being, ease, security, and peace
  • Awaken to your essential wholeness
  • Experiment with playful, improvisational movement, sound, and art activities to reflect on what opens up within yourself when actions flow spontaneously from your essential wholeness

This iRest Yoga Nidra Immersion fulfills the short retreat requirement of the iRest Certification Program.

This program is open to everyone—both newcomers and experienced iRest practitioners alike—wishing to sample the fullness that iRest has to offer for health, healing, and wholeness of being.

I re-discovered my heartfelt desire. I learned how to accept, be open, to flow with life in an authentic way. iRest provides the tools for living, for awakening our Presence to life. — Katherine King

The iRest course staff, the Ashram staff, Ashram, and classes were amazing. I am grateful for this time here and look forward to returning soon. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and selfless service. — Stacy Fischer

I came because I am very well familiar both with iRest and Robin Carnes and had high expectations which were fully met. Yogaville was a pleasant surprise. There is peace all around, in people as well as in the beautiful natural setting. I am sure to return. — Milena Orchard-Hayes

I am an iRest teacher and know both the material and the presenter well. I needed personal R&R. I got that and much more. It was all delightful.
