About this event

iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation is a yoga therapy practice that involves being guided into the hypnogogic state (the healing state between sleep and wakefulness) and through the stages of the practice, ending with grounding and integrating the experience into the waking state.

The practice supports an experience of deep relaxation. And it accesses deeper levels of the mind, enabling healing and transformation.

Although it is yoga therapy, it is different from the asana, the physical postures that people tend to think of when they think of yoga. iRest is commonly practised lying on the floor on a yoga mat or similar although it is also often practised sitting in a chair or on the floor or even standing. There are no physical requirements.

Yoga Nidra is an ancient practice, first mentioned in the Upanishads. But this version - iRest Yoga Nidra - was developed over the past 50 years by Dr Richard Miller (a yogic scholar and practitioner and a clinical psychologist). It draws on Dr Miller's yogic knowledge and also his experience as a psychologist.

iRest is very adaptable and can be used as a spiritual practice and also as a tool for psychological healing. Practising iRest regularly has been shown to help people reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety and insomnia, deal with daily stresses, reduce the tendency for relapse in people with chemical dependency, manage chronic pain, overcome symptoms of trauma and increase perceptions of quality of life.

The practice offered here will focus on a different theme each session. The practices will be suitable for the general population and also safe for people with symptoms of trauma, stress and anxiety.

This session will comprise of a brief introduction. A practice of about 30 minutes and there will be some optional time at the end if there are any questions.

The sessions will be provided by me – Melanie Johnson. I am an iRest Yoga Nidra Certified Teacher and a BACP accredited counsellor. I work with individuals and groups - teaching iRest and providing one-to-one somatic psychotherapeutic counselling.

Some testimonials from previous iRest sessions I have run are:

“Thank you very much for today’s session. The deepest state of relaxation for me is not feeling my neck tension, you took me way past that, thank you.”

“Thank you for sharing, you are deeply gifted.”

“Focusing on my Inner Resource has been beyond amazing and so helpful for me.” 

“I happened to be going through an extremely challenging time in my life. iRest has helped me ground myself and cope better.”
