iRest Yoga Nidra Immersion Program

with Robin Carnes, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT, MBA

November 8 - 11, 2019

Learn the principles and practice of iRest® Yoga Nidra meditation and experience the variety of ways iRest can be used on and off the mat during this iRest Yoga Nidra Immersion Program.

iRest Yoga Nidra is a research-based meditation, relaxation, and healing protocol that enables you to deeply calm your nervous system, integrate difficult thoughts and emotions and awaken to your essential nature. iRest meditation is an excellent personal practice as well as an adjunctive practice for healthcare and healing professionals. 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.

Through experiential practice and dynamic dialogue you will:

  • 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 relaxation
  • Learn 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.
