Clearlight Gerald

MA, E-RYT500, iRest Certified Teacher
Montreal, QC, Canada

After years of exploring different traditions and teachings with a deep desire and longing for authenticity and truth, Clearlight felt that she had ‘arrived home’ when she attended her first retreat with Richard Miller in 2004. Clearlight has been deeply immersed in the study of nondual wisdom teachings with Richard Miller and Joan Ruvinsky and this beautiful community of IRI friends ever since.

The insight and inquiry stimulated by these nondual teachings have been life changing, bringing Clearlight a greater ease of welcoming what life brings and a recognition of the wholeness that always is. For her it is a privilege to support IRI in bringing these teachings, including iRest, to our communities.

Clearlight’s initial undergraduate and graduate studies were interdisciplinary in nature – with a focus on religious studies, women’s studies and public policy. After teaching humanities at the college level, it became evident that yoga was her primary focus and love. Clearlight went on to receive yoga teaching certification as a Kripalu Yoga teacher and Pregnancy Yoga teacher in 1999 and has been a full-time teacher and student of yoga ever since.

In 2001, Clearlight opened Yogaspace in Montreal, Canada where she continues to offer group classes and workshops in both yoga and yoga nidra, as well as pregnancy yoga and childbirth preparation - her teaching specialization that has been close to her heart for years. (

Clearlight is registered with the Yoga Alliance (E-RYT 500) and is both a supervisor and mentor for the IRI iRest teacher training program. She lives with her husband and children in Montreal. Her other loves include sitting as Silence in the company of trees in quiet places of nature...
