iRest Meditation Series
Kyo Yoga & Healing
‘The realisation underlying iRest Meditation affirms that our intrinisic Essential Nature is incapable of being hurt or harmed, is never in need of healing, is ever present and indestructible. iRest emphasises – from the outset – that while the physical and mental health issues need to addressed in the body and mind, the Essential Essence of each of us always remains whole and healthy and is never in need of healing. It just needs to be recognised, embodied and remembered.‘ Richard Miller, PhD, iRest founder.
iRest® is guided Yoga Nidra Meditation – a modern day secular adaption of the ancient meditative practice of Yoga Nidra. This step by step program offers tools to enhance wellbeing with the intention to cultivate resilience and acceptance around experiences in life.
Like any wellbeing process, practice is key.
iRest® is a well researched meditation protocol that explores the understanding our Essential Nature – an aspect of self that is non changing despite life’s challenges. It also offers the experience of deep and restorative rest in order for body and mind to experience healing.
Research into iRest has shown it to effectively reduce PTSD, insomnia, depression, anxiety and chronic pain whilst increasing resilience, health and wellbeing.
If you are curious about exploring the benefits of meditation in an accessible way, this program is for you.
No experience is necessary.
Each class is around 60 minutes comprising a 35-40 minute guided practice and time for settling in and coming out of practice. Instruction around how to work with the protocol at home will also be given.

The program can be attended in studio or online via Zoom.
