Which Event is For Me?

If you're new to iRest Yoga Nidra, the best way to learn about these practices is to experience them first-hand at an iRest Immersion or Retreat, and then a Level 1 and Level 2 Teacher Training. Also, all events described below are part of the Teacher Certification Program.

An Immersion is a "mini-retreat" geared towards beginners who would like a short 2-3 day, non-residential event to introduce them to iRest in a highly experiential event. At Immersions you'll be guided first-hand by seasoned staff who will help you understand the basics and develop a personal practice.

If you'd like to go deeper our Retreats are much longer, about 5-7 days in a residential setting. You'll get more of the practices but in a much more contained setting which tends to open participants to deeper experiences and personal integration of the principles.

And if interested you might consider our Level 1 and Level 2 Teacher Trainings. These events are geared towards those who would like to teach as well as practitioners interested in learning iRest in the most comprehensive manner possible. Consisting of lectures as well as practices, you'll receive detailed manuals on the history, theory, and protocol of iRest. If you'd like more information about Trainings, please see our pages for Level 1 TrainingLevel 2 Training and Teacher Certification Program.
