iRest Yoga Nidra
Yoga Nidra is a form of guided mindfulness meditation. Practicing regularly can help you tap into the parts of your brain that allow for greater insight and quiet the parts of the brain that are responsible for negative thoughts, feelings, and sensations. Through this process people learn to welcome life as it is happening and to respond – not react – to challenging situations. The practice can help us alleviate stress, sleep better, and heal unresolved issues and traumas. It is a wonderful support to the psychotherapy process.
People practicing iRest Yoga Nidra experience: decreased stress, anxiety, fear and depression, improved sleep, an ability to better manage pain, healthier interpersonal relations, more confidence and joy, and a greater sense of peace and well-being. It can also allow us to recognize an underlying peace of mind that is always present within us – no matter what circumstances we are facing in life.
