iRest Yoga Nidra is a form of meditation based on ancient yogic teachings, made accessible for modern day life. The practice strengthens parts of the brain that allow for greater insight and quiets parts that are responsible for distressing thoughts, feelings, urges, and sensations. Through regular practice, participants make space for wise responding to challenging situations, rather than emotionally reacting.

Yoga Nidra is often called “the yoga of sleep”. There is only one posture – lying down. Participants are guided through the deepest forms of effortless yogic relaxation, inducing a meditative state somewhere between wakefulness and sleep. Studies have shown that yoga nidra may be a helpful complimentary approach for conditions such as post-traumatic stress, insomnia, anxiety, depression, addiction, and chronic pain. It can calm the nervous system, decrease emotional reactivity, and improve self-regulation.
