iRest is a guided meditation designed to reduce suffering, build resilience and cultivate deep peace, ease and well-being.
iRest is backed by clinical research evidence AND endorsed by the U.S. Army Surgeon General as complementary and alternative medicine for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and the management of chronic pain
Richard Miller founded iRest and has devoted over 40 years to studying, researching and teaching this meditation practice.
Three common results of an iRest meditation practice are better sleep, less stress and anxiety and the reduction of the negative effects of chronic pain.
iRest is practiced in a resting position while listening to an instructor, in sessions lasting for 10 to 40 minutes at a time and is an enjoyable and relaxing experience. Students learn through a combination of group classes, Skype sessions and home practice. Many students see results after a just a few classes.
iRest has its roots in a 4000-year-old type of yoga called Nidra. iRest meditation is secularized with no religious or spiritual connotations.
iRest is a physical way to learn meditation, no sitting and waiting; an iRest instructor guides a student through the whole practice.
iRest meditation is a series of experiments and self-inquiries to come to your own first-hand understanding of deep peace ease and well-being.
