LEVEL I TRAINING DESCRIPTION

Developed over 30 years by Richard Miller PhD, iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation supports psychological, physical and spiritual health, healing and awakening.

HOW IT WORKS

iRest is an accessible and easy to use meditation protocol that is integrative, as it heals unresolved issues and traumas, and restorative, as it aids practitioners in recognizing their innate wholeness and underlying peace of mind that is always present amidst all changing circumstances in life.

Research has shown that iRest effectively supports health and healing across a broad range of populations, including those experiencing PTSD, chronic pain, sleep issues, high stress, depression, and anxiety.

I use iRest to manage the daily pain caused by migraines and to find peace in the midst of stress and anxiety. – Nicole, Working Parent

In this Level 1 Training, you will learn:

  • The core principles and practice of iRest meditation.
  • How to use iRest for your personal practice.
  • How to teach and deliver iRest simply, and effectively in group and individual settings.

Following the Level 1 Training, you will:

  • Join a global community of practitioners who are teaching iRest in yoga studios, sleep clinics, rehabilitation and healthcare facilities, hospitals, hospice, prisons, universities, schools, as well as in private practice.
  • Be able to list yourself on the IRI website as a Level 1 Teacher-in-Training.
  • Be able to access our “Teacher Resources” and our “Teachers Community Network (TCN)” for further personal and professional support.
  • Be recommended by IRI to people seeking iRest teachers in their local area.

PLEASE NOTE: In order to receive a certificate of attendance designating you as a Level I Teacher-in-Training you must arrive on time every day and attend all training sessions.

“iRest is a profound tool which can enhance any therapy. My hope is that anyone struggling with his or her own life challenges, or searching for deeper meaning to life, will have the same opportunity to experience this life-giving practice as I have.”
— Michael, Cancer Survivor

    Richard Miller, PhD, Founder of iRest Institute
  • "Molly is a dynamic presenter capable of connecting with diverse audiences through her open-hearted and accessible approach."

  • "Molly doesn’t approach her writing with intellectual detachment; she infuses it with a deep commitment to improving people’s lives. She knows personally the power of the principles she writes about; they’ve changed her life. And, for her, that change comes with a responsibility to share, to spread the word, to help others find their way to a more open, mindful, and connected mode of living.” -  Peter Cooper, The Great Courses
