iRest, also known by its ancient name, Yoga Nidra (the sleep of the yogis), is a powerful yet completely effortless method of self-inquiry and personal transformation. It combines the time-honored insights of the yoga traditions with the discoveries of modern brain science. iRest relies on no doctrines or dogmas, just your own personal experience. It’s not therapy- iRest assumes you’re fine just as you are- but at the same time, it offers a way to resolve long-standing difficulties, enhance creativity and gain direct experience of your own true nature, and the true nature of everything.
iRest has been extensively researched, and proven very useful for specific conditions like insomnia, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder, as well as for general well-being. People who’ve experienced it report deep levels of relaxation- in itself a huge benefit in our highly stressful lives, especially during this time of fear and uncertainty. However, iRest offers much more than just deep rest. People consistently report that insights and understanding continue to unfold after their sessions, along with a sense of peaceful happiness and spontaneous resolution of impasses and contradictions.
iRest is indeed effortless. There’s nothing you need to force, strive for, or make happen. You simply rest in a comfortable position- lying down or sitting- and follow along with the instructions. Anyone can do it- nothing special is required. And your work is completely private and individual- no personal disclosures are required at all.
