Title (Session 1) - iRest Yoga Nidra in Motion
At the heart of yoga is this question: Who or What are we? Beyond all our identifying labels of age, gender, profession, intellect, status and achievement is the simple essence of "Just Being". What is here before, during and after all these layers of identification are peeled away? How can we meet and embrace ourselves fully? And how do we bridge the gap between our mat practice and our everyday lives?
iRest Yoga Nidra is a ten-step protocol developed by yogic scholar and Clinical Psychologist Richard Miller, PhD. While it’s most commonly known as a reclined practice of self-inquiry, it is also offered as a refined body sensing or movement practice from the Kashmir Non-dual tradition. Join me as we explore the delight of Just Being through body sensation with slow, gentle, meditative movement.
