iRest® Yoga Nidra is a mindfulness based meditation practice that has been shown to be effective at reducing anxiety, improving sleep, decreasing chronic pain, and in improving one’s overall sense of well-being. It has been studied and utilized extensively in military settings as an adjunct treatment for PTSD and other war related conditions.
iRest provides simple, easy to follow guided instructions. It is well suited for people with PTSD or stress symptoms because of the continuous verbal instructions which keep attention focused and re-focused on specific body sensations, breathing, emotions, beliefs and images.
This workshop will introduce the basic principles of iRest Yoga Nidra and iRest practices.
This class focuses on breath inspired movement – with modifications to meet individual needs. Class is geared to help individual practitioners discover the tools they can use to deepen their personal experience through yoga. Experienced teacher Susan Hakanson reminds students that “every body is different everyday” – and the postures and focus on breath are merely tools to help individuals to enhance their sense of health and wellbeing – mind, body and spirit.
If you have very limited mobility – please contact Susan and ask about private sessions prior to attending any open yoga class.
Ever told yourself you were too stiff – too old – too pudgy- too whatever to go to a yoga class? This class is for you!
