I am a certified teacher in Irest level 1 and 2, and I have taken a 100 hour yoga teacher training.
What is Irest?
Irest is short for Integrative Restoration.
iRest was developed by Richard Miller, PhD. Richard is a world-renowned spiritual teacher, author, yogic scholar, researcher and clinical psychologist, who has combined traditional yogic practice with Western psychology and neuroscience. iRest is based on ancient Yoga Nidra teachings, but designed for modern day living.
Irest yoga nidra meditation is a modern adaptation of the ancient meditative practice of Yoga Nidra. It is a form of self inquiry that research shows effectively reduces PTSD, depression, anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, and chemical dependency; while increasing health, resiliency and well-being.
Irest is comprised of ten steps.
Irest is usually given as a guided meditation, where the receiver is laying down or sitting. The meditation is adapted to fit the individual needs of the receiver.
I teach Irest in combination with yoga and horse training here on Masia Fogueres.
I teach yoga to people coming here on retreats, mainly in combination with Irest and horse communication/training.
I work with Vinyasa flow yoga and fit it to the individual needs of the people I teach.
It can be fiery and dynamic, or simple, slow and calming.
Irest and yoga, works wonders in combination with horse communication.
The practice of yoga and meditation enables us to meet the horses from a different place in ourselves, and this allows the horses to open up to us and choose to be with us.
Yoga and meditation teaches us to express ourselves as our authentic, true nature and this has a profound effect on how the horses sees and meets us.
