iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation
iRest® Yoga Nidra is an ancient meditation from India that was specialized into 10-unique phases by Dr. Richard Miller. It is integrative, in that it heals the various unresolved issues, traumas, and wounds that are present in the body and mind. It is restorative in that it aids its practitioners in recognizing their underlying peace of mind that is always present amidst all changing circumstances of life. iRest® offers you the option of practicing in any comfortable position. Practicing meditation while you are physically comfortable and supported makes it accessible for anyone in a wide range of health conditions and injuries. Once you are arranged in your comfortable position, the instructor begins offering suggestions about where and how to use your attention. For example, imagining yourself in a place that feels safe, comfortable and where you are at ease. Another example would be systematically scanning the entire body, part by part, by noticing the physical sensations that are present for you. The instructions are simple, they focus primarily on your felt experiences in the body. It is easy and accessible for nearly everyone, even those that thought they could never meditate.
