Effective Languaging for Deeply Sensing in iRest

September 18, 2021



This is the third session of a six-part monthly series open to all iRest teachers.

The iRest protocol invites us to move from the mind into the body. Most people are not well versed in connecting to their bodies. Using it as a portal to the present moment is unavailable. Harnessing the power of mindful language enables you to effectively guide head-centered students into transformative body-based experiences.

In this session you will: 

  • Learn new approaches for enabling safe, supportive, and transformative guidance that skillfully bridges mind and body and helps students sensitize to feeling states.
  • Expand your languaging toolset by developing creative ways to get students out of their minds and into experiences of body, breath, and emotion.
  • Explore why students can find the shift from thinking to feeling challenging and what to do about it.

This session includes:

  • Interactive group learning
  • Breakout rooms for exploration with the iRest teacher community
  • Group sharing and integration of new knowledge
  • A nourishing yoga nidra practice
