Why iRest?

iRest teaches the heart of yoga therapy, for recognizing and embodying our inherent health, wholeness, and well-being. It offers you, as a yoga therapist, a vast array of tools for helping your clients awaken to their true state of health, healing, and well-being. Yoga therapy relies on the art of listening, observing and inquiring.

iRest helps you cultivate these skills, enabling you to be fully receptive and creatively responsive to the needs of your clients during group and individual yoga therapy sessions. Studies have revealed the effectiveness of iRest across multiple scientific trials, showing benefits for people with depression, sleep problems, trauma, chronic pain, and many other conditions.

iRest Teacher Trainings have been designed to prepare you to respond and tailor the practice to your groups and work with individuals, with respect to their presenting issues. You learn specific group deliveries for helping clients respond to their sensations, emotions, and thoughts. During one-on-one sessions, in what are known as ‘co-meditation dyads’ – a unique feature of iRest – you learn how to directly address the needs of each client, with interventions that have proven to be empowering and transformational.
