De-Stress with iRest
iRest is a research-based, mind-body practice that provides simple tools to release stress, increase resiliency and promote healing and well-being. iRest meditation is an integration of Yoga Nidra and modern evidence-based practices for deep relaxation and restoration.
Shown to be effective in reducing depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, chronic pain, and sleep problems, iRest is also being used in treatment for chemical dependency. iRest provides essential tools for preventing compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma. Because iRest meditation does not involve any movement and can be done seated, it is totally portable and can be done in any group setting.
In this introductory workshop, we will practice three foundational steps of the iRest process. Linda will share the history of how iRest was developed with the military and the growing body of research supporting this practice. On-line resources for home practices that can be integrated into daily life will be highlighted.
*This workshop is a special community-service offering to increase access to iRest Tools.
