Designing iRest to Meet Anxiety

October 2, 2021



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

While the iRest protocol is inherently supportive of processing and relieving anxiety, its efficacy is greatly increased when you design practices with this specific focus in mind. If your student is in a highly anxious state, they require extra support and ease to be able to sit with their discomfort.

In this session you will: 

  • Learn what to do and what not to do when designing a class with the specific intention of meeting anxiety.
  • Explore different ways to proactively tailor the iRest Protocol steps to help students address anxiety with extra fortification, relaxation, and courage.
  • Expand your understanding of special considerations and challenges posed by anxiety and how to engage it as a wise messenger.

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

Please note: Recordings are now available! If you register for this event and can’t attend live, you will receive a link to the recording within 72 hours. You can access the recording for 2 months.
