For Therapists: The Mindful Practice of iRest Yoga NidrA

Corinne Peterson, LMT, MPH, NCTMP, RYT
Registration: $150

This workshop is for psychotherapists (and other mental health professionals) who are interested in a personal exploration of Yoga Nidra, a form of guided mindfulness meditation. We will be working with the Integrative Restoration (iRest(r) approach; a research-based transformative practice of deep relaxation and meditative inquiry which is currently being utilized in VA hospitals, military bases, hospitals and clinics, hospice, homeless shelters, community programs, and schools.

Yoga Nidra is a systemic process for leading the body and mind into receptive states of relaxation and deep presence, accessing inner healing and the pure awareness of being. It is a wonderful support for therapist self-care. It is a vehicle for exploring our life experiences and entering into a deeper connection with all that is.
