We all need time to rest, process emotions, and integrate thoughts. At Yoga Learning Adventures, we teach a style of meditation called iRest Yoga Nidra which was created by psychologist Richard Miller, PhD. The iRest Institute studies the iRest Yoga Nidra protocol’s efficacy on health, healing and well-being with diverse populations including active-duty soldiers, veterans, college students, children, seniors, the homeless, the incarcerated, and people experiencing issues such as sleep disorders, PTSD, chemical dependency, chronic pain, and related disorders. Yoga Nidra means yogic sleep or sense withdrawal. It is generally practiced lying down and needs to be done consistently to be effective. Yoga Nidra teaches the self that “I feel this, but I am not this” so we can separate ourselves from our experiences and emotions to feel whole despite our circumstances.
