What does an iRest Level 2 Teacher Training entail?

It’s an intensive 4-day practical and experiential program which evolves your understanding of the theory, deepens your practice, and improves your confident delivery of iRest. It builds on your Level 1 foundational knowledge and is the next step towards becoming a Certified iRest Teacher. 

This training is designed to enhance your firsthand experience of the iRest tools, dive deeper into the key underlying philosophies including non-dualism, and fortify your teaching skills. You will integrate the next level of experiential understanding as it relates to Being, Presence, and Awareness, transforming your personal practice and grounding your teaching ability. 

Is this training right for me?

Yes! If you’re committed to the path of becoming a Certified iRest Teacher or are ready to step into the role of iRest Level 2 Teacher.

This training is also recommended if you want to integrate a deeper understanding of all aspects of iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation and further explore the nondual wisdom and ancient lineage that underlie iRest.

What can I expect?

  • Advanced skills and training for teaching iRest to groups and one-on-one
  • Participatory advanced group lectures and  discussions 
  • Exploring the teacher-student relationship, teaching issues, and ethical considerations
  • Advanced experiential group and one-on-one iRest practice sessions
  • A deeper understanding of the historical and philosophical non-dual context and the pathless path of meditation in which iRest is embedded
  • Evidence-based research proving the efficacy of iRest for various ailments, like PTSD and sleep disorders
  • An evolution in your spiritual journey and personal practice of iRest 


Previous Level 2 Graduates:

“Another really remarkable learning experience! This training did an excellent job building on Level 1 in a way that is already taking both my personal and teaching practices to new levels.”

“Another “eye opening” level of iRest which has boosted my confidence in myself personally and in teaching this beautiful practice.”

“With the iRest training the focus isn't on just learning a skill to use out in the world, but rather on helping us create a rich practice of our own that guides us in helping others to find the same thing for themselves.”
