iREST YOGA NIDRA

iRest Yoga Nidra is often called “yogic sleep” because it is a state of consciousness between wakefulness and dream. An style of meditation applicable to the times we live in, based on ancient yogic practices, informed by psychology, validated by neuroscience, and implemented by the military for treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

 

You will be guided through basic techniques that withdraw the mind from habitual over-processing and personal patterning distortions.

 

Practice tools that help you learn how to experience a greater sense of peace, well-being, equanimity, resilience.

This is an accessible antidote for the epidemic of stress-related disorders, such as:

anxiety, compulsion, fear, depression, insomnia, isolation, pain.

 

I teach yoga nidra as private sessions, and as 4-week workshop series.  For many years yoga nidra has been incorporated into my            New Year’s Eve Introspective Workshop.  Medical acupuncture NADA protocol is often included in PTSD treatment sessions.

 

The lineage of my teachers is Swami Satyananda Saraswati who first adapted yoga nidra from the traditional tantric practice of nyasa. His teachings are both yogic and scientific. This lead me to my ongoing study with Richard Miller who adapted the practice further by informing it with psychotherapy, and been involved in decades of clinical research on the effectivity of yoga nidra.
