iRest Yoga Nidra for Therapists: Resourcing from Within 

Yoga Nidra is quickly gaining mainstream popularity. The iRest (Integrative Restoration) approach is particularly trauma-informed and adaptable. Developed by a clinical psychologist, it is currently being utilized in VA military bases, hospitals and clinics, hospice, homeless shelters, sex trafficking, schools, etc. It is also a great self-resourcing practice for psychotherapists! Many are finding that it not only supports the client's process - but also their own process of resilience and growth within the ever-changing demands of work and life.

The iRest Yoga Nidra practice is one of welcoming, and even engaging, all of our internal experience, within a container of deep relaxation. The process helps integrate daily experiences, leading to deeper insights, more confidence and joy, and a greater sense of peace and well-being - no matter what circumstances we are facing. It can also help improve sleep, aid pain management, and reduce stress and anxiety.

The workshop includes:

  • An experiential exploration of customized iRest Yoga Nidra practices
  • Two recorded practices for use at home
  • The iRest Yoga Nidra Handbook and supplemental reading materials
  • Everyday short "micropractices" for personal use and with clients
  • Mindful office yoga, to de-stress between clients

Please join us!
