iRest ® LEVEL I TEACHER TRAINING
Developed over 30 years by Richard Miller PhD, iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation supports psychological, physical and spiritual health, healing and awakening.
HOW IT WORKS
iRest is an accessible and easy to use meditation protocol that is integrative, as it heals unresolved issues and traumas, and restorative, as it aids practitioners in recognizing their innate wholeness and underlying peace of mind that is always present amidst all changing circumstances in life.
Research has shown that iRest effectively supports health and healing across a broad range of populations, including those experiencing PTSD, chronic pain, sleep issues, high stress, depression, and anxiety.
In the Level 1 Training, you will learn:
The core principles and practice of iRest meditation.
How to use iRest for your personal practice.
How to teach and deliver iRest simply, and effectively in group and individual settings.
Following the Level 1 Training, you will:
Join a global community of practitioners who are teaching iRest in yoga studios, sleep clinics, rehabilitation and healthcare facilities, hospitals, hospice, prisons, universities, schools, as well as in private practice.
Be able to list yourself on the IRI website as a Level 1 Teacher-in-Training.
Be able to access our “Teacher Resources” and our “Teachers Community Network (TCN)” for further personal and professional support.
Be recommended by IRI to people seeking iRest teachers in their local area.
