WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN iREST YOGA NIDRA AND EMBODIED REST?
Embodied Rest and iRest Yoga Nidra are similar in that they’re both usually practiced lying down in a supported and comfortable position.
iRest Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation practice developed by Clinical Psychology and Yogic Scholar Richard Miller. In an iRest class with me, I spend about half the class talking about the theme of the class and facilitating a discussion, and half the class guiding you through a meditation practice.
Embodied Rest is a deep relaxation practice that I developed myself after years of teaching yoga, meditation and relaxation, that draws on the teachings and practices of iRest, mindfulness, Restorative Yoga, and pranayama (breath training). There is very minimal talking in the class and luxury of spacious deep relaxation.
