Have you always wanted to learn to meditate but you're nervous about being in a large group? Or do you struggle to settle your mind when practicing? iRest Yoga Nidra and our private sessions may be just what you need. iRest Yoga Nidra is a guided form of meditation that provides a gentle and supported path into deep relaxation. It is especially effective for people who struggle to settle their minds during their meditation practice. The guided nature of iRest provides an anchor for the mind, which helps you let go of intrusive thoughts, and release into a very deep state of relaxation. It is an evidence based ancient transformative practice of deep relaxation and meditative inquiry that releases negative emotions and thought patterns, calms the nervous system, and develops an inner sanctuary of well-being and equanimity that underlies all circumstance you may encounter in your life.
Although initially developed by Dr. Richard Miller, an American psychologist, for use with veterans suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, research has demonstrated that iRest Yoga Nidra also effectively reduces the symptoms of depression, anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, mild traumatic brain injury, and chemical dependency. But more generally, it is a wonderful technique for coping with the stresses of daily life, building resilience, self-awareness, and self-regulation. Suitable for absolutely everyone. The practice is done lying in a zero gravity chair, or on a yoga mat and props to get comfortable.
