Six-Week iRest Yoga Nidra Program Restores Mind-Body Connection
Susan Trafton, a trained teacher of iRest Yoga Nidra through the Integrative Restoration Institute, will offer classes in this ancient guided meditation technique where the participant is led through the layers of their physical, energetic, mental, emotional and pure being. The classes will take place every Wednesday from 7 to 8:30 p.m. January 30 through March 6 in the Education Room at GreenSquare Integrative Health Care Center.
Through the carefully guided practice of iRest Yoga Nidra, the participant sits in a chair or lies on a yoga mat and enters into a receptive state of deep relaxation and meditation, while remaining aware and alert. The practice allows us to uncover and access our inherent wisdom and healing capabilities.
“Research has shown that iRest Yoga Nidra reduces symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain and chemical dependency,” says Trafton. “iRest is integrative in that it can heal unresolved issues, traumas and wounds that are present in the body and mind. It is restorative in that it aids practitioners in accessing the underlying peace and joy that is always present deep within us. This practice helps people resolve suffering and experience deep healing and lasting peace.”
Cost: $90/entire program or $20/session. Location: 6789 N. Green Bay Ave., Glendale. For more information, call 414-305-7496, email STrafton@wi.rr.com or visit GreenSquareCenter.com.
