iRest Meditation Immersion

May 3–5, 2019

Alberta, Canada


Yoga and meditation have been scientifically proven to foster health and well-being at every level; physically, psycho-emotionally, and spiritually. Of the over 18 million yoga practitioners around the world, many are seeking “the next step” to support themselves, their loved ones and their community at large, as we face enormous personal and global challenges at all levels. The answer comes in the form of yogic non-dual teachings, which help us heal the misperception of separation and remember our essential wholeness and imperturbable peace, no matter our circumstance.

Discover the Alchemy of Presence with this timely and transformative weekend iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation Immersion. iRest is a researched-based meditation, relaxation and healing protocol. The practice of iRest enables you to deeply calm your nervous system, integrate difficult thoughts and emotions, and awaken to your essential nature. Research shows iRest effectively reduces stress, insomnia, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and post-traumatic stress disorder, and enhances joy, equanimity and well-being in daily life.

This iRest Meditation Immersion is open to everyone; both experienced iRest practitioners and newcomers alike wishing to sample the fullness iRest has to offer for health, healing, and wholeness of being.

Through experiential practice and dynamic dialogue, you will:

  • Learn the 10-Step iRest Protocol to enhance your personal meditation practice
