iRest® Yoga Nidra Meditation

iRest® combines a traditional yogic meditative practice of Yoga Nidra with Western psychology. It's a step-by-step, guided process that makes a deeper experience of meditation accessible to all. 

iRest® is an evidence-based, mind-body practice based on the ancient teachings of meditation that fosters psychological, physical, and spiritual healing and well-being. It gives us tools to help relax deeply, release stress, increase resiliency, improve relationships and have greater mastery and control of our lives.  Practicing iRest® helps us heal various unresolved issues and traumas lodged in our bodies and minds, and enables us to recognize our innate peace of mind that is always present amidst all changing circumstances of life. By practicing iRest® we nourish noble qualities such as joy, peacefulness, empathy, forgiveness, patience and loving-kindness toward yourself and others.


People who practice iRest® report: • Reduced depression, fear and anxiety • Greater ability to relax and enjoy life • Reduced insomnia and levels of stress • Improved interpersonal relations • Reduced chronic and acute pain • Increased inner peace and well-being


iRest® is the result of thirty years of observation, research and hands-on development by Dr. Richard Miller and associates. Please visit irest.org for more information.
