Integrative Restoration, iRest® yoga nidra, is an ancient yogic practice expertly adapted by Richard Miller, PH.D, to de-stress the western practitioner. In this workshop, Kelly will explain iRest and its 10 step protocol, the historical context relating to yoga, and how it can assist in your well-being in our modern world. You will then be led through a guided meditation that is done sitting or lying down. In a deep state of relaxation, it is possible to work through negative thoughts, beliefs and even deep traumas that compromise expressing the whole and healthy self. You will come away from iRest® empowered with a deeper connection to true self.
Clinical studies with veterans have proventhe positive effects of iRest® in alleviating posttraumatic stress symptoms. These studies were so effective that iRest is approved by the Veteran’s Administration as treatment for P.T.S.D.
This workshop costs $25 and is open to students of all levels.
