iRest Yoga Nidra for Therapists: Resourcing from Within

Due to social distancing measures, this event will take place online.

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.  This is especially true during this time of the Covid 19 pandemic.

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 wellbeing – no matter what circumstances we are facing. Please join us for this informative, experiential and relaxing afternoon. 

This online workshop includes:

·    Supplemental 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
