Designing iRest to Support Healthy Sleep

November 6, 2021



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

Sleep challenges are a universal experience. Knowing how to tailor iRest to address different sleep troubles broadens the appeal of your class offerings. Sleep-specific yoga nidra practices are applicable to everyone, while offering targeted help and, often, immediate benefit. 

In this session you will: 

  • Learn how to customize your guidance to create an effective practice for addressing sleep challenges.
  • Explore effective ways to best address common sleep concerns and what to avoid when creating your practices. 
  • Understand how to offer sleep-specific sessions to students by learning how to integrate relevant research to communicate the need and its benefits.

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.
