iRest Yoga Nidra for Therapists: Resourcing from Within


Facilitator: Corinne Peterson, LMT, MPH, NCTMB, RYT

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. Read Corinne’s article on the CCIH community blog to learn even more about Yoga Nidra.

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
