What Is iRest? | Integrative Restoration Methodology

Integrative Restoration Methodology (abbreviated as iRest) was developed by Richard C. Miller, and is a therapeutic Yoga modality derived from Yoga Nidra. iRest is typically taught as a Guided Meditation.

iRest’s initial goal was the use of Yoga Nidra for rehabilitating soldiers in pain and/or suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), insomnia, anxiety, and stress.

Today, however, the scope of iRest has broadened significantly, and the methodology is used as a complementary or alternative medicine for chronic pains in general.

The iRest Institute provides events, teacher trainings, and educational content based on the Yoga Nidra teachings, adapted in a form more accessible for modern day living. Its aim is to bring the healing benefits of Yogic and meditative practices to a wide variety of people.
