10 steps of iRest Yoga Nidra – teachings on how to rest and let go.

With James Reeves

Discovering the home-ground of wellbeing; explore the depths of the word ‘yoga’: to feel at one with everything.

iRest Yoga Nidra is a research-based transformative practice of deep relaxation and meditative inquiry that releases negative emotions and thought patterns.

It calms the nervous system and develops a deep capacity to meet and be at ease within the circumstances we encounter in life. Research has shown that iRest Yoga Nidra effectively reduces, insomnia, chronic pain, chemical dependency, P.T.S.D, depression and anxiety but this is a practice open to all who are interested in discovering their home-ground of wellbeing and exploring the depths of the word ‘yoga’: to feel at one with everything.

This weekend introduces the 10 steps of iRest Yoga Nidra, taking time to explore each component of the practice through a mix of explanation and experience. We will introduce and focus on:

  • Setting intentions
  • Exploring living your heartfelt mission
  • Creating an inner resource of well-being
  • Body sensing
  • Breath sensing
  • Welcoming emotions as messengers and feedback systems
  • Meeting the mind and integrating it into practice
  • Working with beliefs and deeper levels of identification
  • Exploring consciousness and the continuum of awareness
  • Enquiring into the thought of self as separate

Who’s it for?

Anyone interested in learning more about yoga nidra, from new learners to those with some experience of the practice and yoga teachers wanting to broaden their knowledge. The weekend also offers a great opportunity for anyone considering iRest Yoga Nidra teacher training to learn more about the practice and its potential applications. Whether your interest in yoga nidra is for personal or professional reasons, you can expect to leave the workshop feeling deeply restored, renewed and equipped with the tools to find a new level of deep rest and the ability to ‘let go’.

The details

“James created a wonderfully nurturing environment in which he skilfully led us on our own deep, meditative journeys that took my heart home to my soul self. I left feeling calm, rested, restored and re-purified. I found a whole new relationship with myself and my emotions – and words are not enough to express my gratitude to James for creating the space for this to blossom.”  – Anne-Marie Frohock, Dietician

“Quite possibly one of the most important weekends of my life.”  – Joel Segura, Restful Being retreat attendee Italy 2017

“I can’t begin to tell you the difference you have made in my life! For a long time I have felt that I had lost the true me but through your teaching, encouragement and understanding I am slowly finding the inner peace and happiness which have been so very elusive to me.”  – Gill Bath, Restful Being retreat attendee Italy 2017

“Going on retreat with James was a beautiful experience that will stay with me as a deep reminder of the power of just resting in being. His skill, knowledge and compassion to hold a wonderful safe space is a delight to be savoured.”  – Paul Collins, Beyond Yoga
