iRest Yoga Nidra Immersion

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

May 14 - 17, 2020

For everyone, especially Yoga teachers and health professionals

Learn the practice of iRest Yoga Nidra meditation during this 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.

During this workshop, 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 skilfully 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.
