Integrative Restoration iRest®Yoga Nidra.


Integrative Restoration (iRest) is a transformative practice derived from the ancient teachings of meditation that leads to psychological, physical, and spiritual healing. iRest® teaches skills that you can use throughout your life, that assist you in experiencing a sense of mastery when encountering difficult situations and a sense of ease that pervades your everyday life.


Develop the skills to navigate through life by connecting to your natural sense of well-being. Access the tools for self-empowerment and a connection to a part of yourself that is peaceful, healthy and whole. Learn how to clear deep rooted, limiting beliefs and heal old traumas with a mindfulness based meditation practice for daily living.













The purpose of iRest is to help you live a contented life free of conflict, anxiety, fear and dissatisfaction. The protocol is (1) integrative in that it heals the various unresolved issues, traumas, and wounds that are present in the body, mind and senses; and (2) restorative in that it aids its practitioners in recognizing their underlying peace of mind that is always present amidst all changing circumstances of life.

iRest accomplishes its goal through two basic steps:


  • The recognition of an intrinsic sense of peace during all circumstances, and

  • The release of negative body sensations, emotions, beliefs, and stress that give rise to self-destructive patterns.

iRest is composed of ten components:


  • Development of Intention

  • Body sensitivity training

  • Breath and energy awareness

  • Systematic neutralization of:

            Negative body sensations and stress

            Negative feelings and emotions,

            Negative beliefs, images, and memories

  • The experience of joy and well-being

  • Freedom from the sense of separation generated by the senses and mind

  • The ability to experience peace amidst the changing circumstances of life


Participants who are using the iRest® protocol report:

  • Decreased insomnia

  • Reduced PTSD, depression, anxiety and fear

  • Decreased perception of chronic and acute pain

  • Improved sleep patterns

  • Improved interpersonal relations

  • Increased comfort with situations they could not control, and paradoxically an
