“iRest Yoga Nidra has been developed over the past twenty-six years by Richard Miller, PhD, a clinical psychologist, author, researcher and yogic scholar, and is uniquely suitable for a Western audience. Extensive research has shown that iRest effectively supports the healing process across a broad range of populations. Currently, there are iRest programs in military hospitals across the U.S., as well as in correctional facilities, hospices, clinics, schools, and organizations supporting personal growth and well-being. In June of 2010, iRest was endorsed by the US Army Surgeon General and Defense Centers of Excellence as a complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).” To learn how it works, visit www.irest.us
Clients describe the effects of their Private Yoga Nidra sessions:
“My Yoga Nidra session was a wonderful way to slow down the chaotic, hectic speed of the day and find of place of space and rest. It helped melt away feelings of compressed timelines and overwhelm, replacing them with a sense of expansiveness and capacity, where there is more than sufficient time available to be present for self and others. A lovely timeout to re-center, re-vitalize and take back control of your own ship when the waves of life get a little choppy.” –Rita Reger
“Johanna, My Yoga Nidra dyad with you was very powerful in clarifying my next strides in the direction of my intentions for the upcoming stage of my life. Being in the incredible beauty of the Sedona area surely added to the magic. Thank you for opening your heart and skills to me.” –Pam Alsum

iRest Meditation: The Practice of Being at Home
iRest Meditation (Integrative Restoration) is a modern-day evidence-based, mind-body approach to health, healing, wholeness, and well-being. It is based on ancient transformative meditative practices, derived from the teachings of Kashmir Nondualism and Yoga Nidra (yoga = experiencing our interconnected wholeness with our self and the entire cosmos; nidra = no matter our changing states of consciousness).
iRest has been developed by Dr. Richard Miller over the past 46 years through observation, hands-on application, and research.
The iRest protocol teaches self-regulation skills for managing sensations, emotions, and cognitions, and physical and mental well-being. iRest is designed as a secular practice, that has been developed to be accessible to all populations, from children to adults, across issues ranging from the enhancement of well-being, to healing PTSD, chronic pain insomnia and chemical dependency.
