Advancing your professional iRest Meditation Practice

The next step towards mastering iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation is the iRest Level 2 Teacher Training. During the iRest Level 2 Training you will gain an advanced understanding of the theory and practice of iRest while honing your delivery of iRest to groups and individuals in both public and professional settings. Our Level 2 Trainings are offered all year round in timezones across the globe. To view our upcoming Level 2 Trainings, please view the carousel below. If you don't see any Level 2's at the moment, please check back! We're constantly scheduling more Level 2 Trainings. 

iRest Certification Program

Having completed the iRest Level 1 Training you can now enroll in the iRest Certification Program. Certification is an intensive, professional level, at-home study program for those passionate about learning more. During certification you will work one-on-one with a dedicated Certification Supervisor to supplement the program’s in-depth study and practice. Some enter Certification to demonstrate they’ve obtained the highest level of iRest training and earn the designation of Certified iRest Teacher. Others enter Certification to master their own understanding and personal practice of iRest.

Because you’ve completed the iRest Level 1 Training, you are eligible to enroll at the discounted price of US $1,600 (regularly US $1,900). Remember, you can enter into the Certification Program any time after attending either a Level 1 or Level 2 Training, but your discount only applies for 3 weeks after receiving your Online Level 1 Training completion email from iRest Institute.
