THE PRACTICE OF WELCOMING: iRest® Yoga Nidra with Nöle Giulini

The Practice of Welcoming: 

iRest® Yoga Nidra Personal Practice Immersion (iPPI) with Nöle Giulini

When we want this moment to be other than it is we experience stress and internal conflict: We separate from what is. 

Healing occurs when we are no longer absorbed and tangled up in likes and dislikes. Attention bound in reaction is now available for change and transformation. 

A change of perspective invites a feeling of radiant and joyful translucence in the body and brings about profound insights and Awakening.

iRest® Yoga Nidra is a research based meditation protocol that was developed by Richard Miller, PhD. It brings together the teachings of the non-dual tradition with the techniques of mindfulness and with current findings in neuroscience.

The practice of iRest® helps calm the nervous system, integrate difficult emotions and thoughts, and helps find authentic responses to life’s challenges.

Together we will explore the practical applications of iRest® Yoga Nidra on and off the mat, including:

  • Inner Resource: a place that provides a sense of safety, security and well-being within
  • Sankalpa: our deepest souls purpose
  • Bodysensing: experiencing and moving the body as space in space: bodyfeeling/spacefeeling
  • Breathsensing: calming and tonifying the nervous system
  • Guided and self-guided/free-form iRest®Yoga Nidra meditations
  • Self-Inquiry and Co-Meditation in dyads

The 10 step protocol provides tools and techniques for daily living to help meet and greet stress, anxiety and depression as messengers. Research shows that iRest Meditation effectively reduces stress, insomnia, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and post-traumatic stress disorder and enhances joy, equanimity and wellbeing throughout your daily life.

**One of the many wonderful benefits of this iPPI is participants will learn to use selected aspects of the iRest protocol in brief moments, as needed, throughout the day.

**iRest®Yoga Nidra is both an excellent personal practice as well as an adjunctive practice for all healthcare professionals.
