Rest and Renew, an iRest® yoga nidra series
Yoga Yoga Westgate, Tuesday’s, 1:30-2:45 pm
March 26, April 2, 9, 16
Every once and a while. Take off your life. And rest. Nayyirah Waheed
This class series will be a space to slow down, restore and renew. Over four weeks, we will explore the transformative practice of iRest® yoga nidra. This practice is grounded in the simplicity of Being, and feeling and sensing into the moment, exactly as it is. When we are not trying to fix, change or manage life, Rest naturally happens. We may experience a depth of ease, wholeness and clarity, no matter the circumstance. Often during or after practice, fresh and creative perspectives can arise in relation to life situations.
Class time will be mostly experiential, and will include a centering, brief orientation, a 35/40 minute iRest® yoga nidra practice, and time to reflect and connect as we close and step back into life. You will receive the audio recording of the guided practice from each class.
**iRest® yoga nidra is a healing and trauma sensitive practice of guided meditation. It is profoundly regulating to the nervous system, and can help to alleviate symptoms of stress, depression, anxiety, PTSD, chronic pain and insomnia. Deep rest can happen during practice, and you may also experience an in between state where you are both at rest and softly awake to the moment. For more information, visit http://www.irest.us
iRest Practice and Community
Please email me at email@example.com to inquire for current offerings.
I hold these classes to support your devotion to practice, and to cultivate a sense of community. This is a safe space that carries no agenda, nor judgement. We primarily explore guided meditation in the form of iRest Yoga Nidra, weaved together with direct Inquiry. Classes include ample time for both silence and sharing.
Based on yogic and non-dual teachings, iRest is a healing practice of rest, guided meditation and inquiry combined. In practice, we explore meeting life as it is. Some experience deep rest and relaxation during the initial practices. As the practitioner has replenished oneself, he/she will feel more alert to the layers of experience that are being revealed, and the messages they convey. The gift of this practice is in returning to an ease of Being, and to a felt sense of wholeness and the wisdom that brings one into harmony with life.
