We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us. Joseph Campbell
New Spring 2019 Series
Rest and Renew, an iRest® yoga nidra series

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
An iRest Yoga Nidra Rest-shop
The new year is a beautiful time to slow down, restore and rest in the depths of one’s heart. In this rest-shop at Dharma Yoga Austin, I will offer a gentle practice, including breathing, soft movements and iRest Yoga Nidra. We will close by planting seeds of inquiry so that when the answers appear, we may hear – what (way of Being) is most calling us into the year that can guide how we show up for ourselves and others, and where we engage.
Their will be no agenda, other than for this to be a safe space for you to meet the truth and wisdom within you.
No experience required, simply your curiosity.

These classes are intended to be a safe space for practice and community. Both can be important supports along our journey. The practice I primarily share is guided meditation in the form of iRest Yoga Nidra weaved together with direct Inquiry. Classes include ample time to connect, discuss and share.
iRest is a healing practice of guided meditation and inquiry. In practice, we explore meeting life as life is. Some experience deep rest and relaxation during the initial practices. This can be incredibly restorative. As the practitioner has replenished oneself, he/she will feel more alert to the layers of experience that are being revealed. The gift of this practice is in returning to an ease of Being in the midst of life, and to a felt sense of wholeness and the wisdom that brings one into harmony with life.
