Among the most successful (using scientifically verified studies) therapeutic applications of Yoga Nidra is Dr. Richard Miller’s Integrative Restoration Yoga Nidra or iRest ®. This program is fast becoming a major healing tool, having been used by Walter Reade Army Hospital Center in treating PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) in veterans. Developing a modern adaptation of this ancient yogic practice, Dr. Miller is a trailblazer in the complementary medicine and Yoga therapy field.
iRest is a profoundly transformative practice that leads to lasting psychological change, as well as physical and emotional healing. It teaches how to live a contented life, free of conflict, anxiety and fear and suffering by revealing our inherent ground of health and wholeness.
Dr. Miller’s website is filled with information about the iRest program, his Yoga Nidra training programs, his book and CD set: Yoga Nidra: The Meditative Heart of Yoga as well as other resources pertaining to his work.
