iRest Yoga Nidra Training, Level 1


  • Warwick Hall, Burford, OX18 4RZ United Kingdom (map)

iRest Yoga Nidra Level 1 training in a stunning state-of-the-art venue in the 'gateway to the Cotswolds.'

Yoga nidra is a transformative state of deep relaxation and one of the fastest-growing yoga practices in the world today. Though its roots lay in thousands of years of philosophies and practices, iRest (‘integrative restoration’) Yoga Nidra carefully and purposefully applies them to our modern-day outlooks and needs. The practice encompasses the teachings of mindfulness and then goes beyond, into the experience of dissolving one’s self – of being completely absorbed in the experience of yoga (meaning to feel interconnected and whole). iRest Yoga Nidra enables you to explore deep movements of meditation and skillfully enquire in to the structures of your self, which can ultimately lead to profound insight and healing.

iRest Yoga Nidra was created by Richard Miller, PhD, a clinical psychologist, author, researcher, yogic scholar and founder of the Integrative Restoration Institute (IRI). It is a unique yoga nidra practice in that it has been substantiated by extensive and continuing research proving it can resolve trauma, pain, chemical dependency and stress, and increase general well being. As a result, iRest Yoga Nidra is applied in settings not previously open to traditional yoga practices, such as in military and healthcare organizations, and is used globally by doctors, nurses, massage therapists, alternative therapists, psychoanalysts and psychologists.

This training programme will not only guide you effortlessly into your own practice of iRest Yoga Nidra but also enable you to understand the process, through exploring research-based material around the sense of self, separation and the ego-I. Although this is the first of three stages to becoming a certified iRest Yoga Nidra teacher you will be able to incorporate the teachings into your current personal yoga practice, and if you are a teacher/therapist (yoga or otherwise) apply and share what you have learned with confidence. 

Our training page has further details regarding this course and content as well as information regarding what is required to become a fully certified iRest Yoga Nidra teacher.
