My deep resonance with yogic philosophy and the realization that this world NEEDS peace and serenity inspired me to dive deeply in to researching yoga nidra. If you've never heard of it, yoga nidra is an ancient practice of deep relaxation and meditation, and there are various forms of this practice.
While it has the word yoga in the name, it's much different than anything you'd experience at your fitness class. Yoga nidra is sometimes referred to as yogic sleep or the sleep of the yogi.
During my research, I came across Richard Miller PhD. He has this fantastic company called the integrative restoration institute. Richard has developed his own protocol (iRest®) from his studies and experience with yoga nidra. I spent all last week working with the amazing trainers of iRest and even getting to hear Richard talk about his work. It was so rewarding.
iRest® teaches you how to live a contented life, free of anxiety, fear, depression, and suffering by opening your mind and body to its inner resource and ground of health and wholeness.
