Come join us for this iRest Yoga Nidra Immersion where you will learn the principles and practice of iRest Yoga Nidra meditation and experience the variety of ways iRest can be used on and off the mat.

This iRest 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. It will invite the ever-present stillness that shines through every layer of identification with body, mind and emotion to come into the foreground. Seeing through our personal narrative we land in being, the true sanctuary of belonging. 

This iRest Yoga Nidra Immersion fulfills the short retreat requirement of the iRest Certification Program.
