What is Yoga Nidra iRest? iRest is a meditation practice based on the ancient tradition of Yoga Nidra and adapted to suit the conditions of modern life. When practiced regularly – little and often – iRest enables you to meet each moment of your life with unshakable peace and wellbeing, no matter how challenging or difficult your situation.
How is iRest different from Yoga Nidra? Welcoming Yoga nidra is more directive, “feel x”, “feel y”, “relax”. iRest helps people to learn to “welcome” or accept themselves as they are and life as it is in this moment.
When was iRest founded? It’s a professional organization for yoga teachers and therapists across the globe, and today has over 2,500 members. Since its establishment in 1989, the IAYT has championed the therapeutic effects of yoga and served as a comprehensive health resource.
What kind of meditation is Yoga Nidra? Yoga Nidra is a form of guided meditation also known as “yogic sleep” or “effortless relaxation”. It’s usually practiced lying down with a teacher guiding the session.
