Neal Ghoshal is offering a six week program introducing the meditative practice of iRest Yoga Nidra. Founded by Dr Richard Miller in the USA, the iRest program is relatively new to New Zealand, but has been growing rapidly in reputation in Australia, the USA and Europe. Neal has been practicing Yoga Nidra since 2003, studying Richard’s work since 2006 and actively studying with him personally from 2013.

What is iRest Yoga Nidra?

iRest Yoga Nidra is an evidence based transformative practice of deep relaxation and meditative inquiry that releases negative emotions and thought patterns, calms the nervous system, and develops an inner sanctuary of well-being and equanimity that underlies all circumstance you may encounter in your life.

Yoga Nidra itself is an ancient practice spanning thousands of years, in which we may enter profound states of relaxation yet we remain awake and present to each moment. iRest is a more contemporary teaching of Yoga Nidra. In this six week course we will be exploring aspects of the practice which include:

  • Cultivating a place within where we may feel completely at ease.

  • Exploring what we really wish for ourselves and our life.

  • Tools for complete relaxation of the body and mind.

  • Befriending and exploring easeful breathing.

  • Learning to welcome and be with difficult emotions and thoughts.

  • Experiencing a real ease of being – spacious, light and grounded.

Neal says, ”I have been practicing iRest Yoga Nidra for a number of years now, and it has integrated beautifully in to my regular Yoga teaching and into my life. It’s a wonderful resource for being more at ease in my life and I am excited to be sharing it on a deeper level here on Waiheke.

This course is suitable for all levels from beginners to people who have more experience with meditation and Yoga.”
