Level 1 iRest® Training


Developed over 30 years by Richard Miller PhD, iRest Yoga Nidra meditation supports psychological, physical and spiritual health, healing and awakening.

How It Works

iRest is an accessible meditation protocol that is integrative, as it heals unresolved issues and traumas, and restorative, as it aids practitioners in recognizing the underlying peace of mind that is always present amidst all changing circumstances in life.

Due to its effectiveness and ease of use, iRest has proven to effectively support the healing process across a broad range of populations, including those with PTSD, chronic pain, sleep issues, high stress, depression, and anxiety.


In this Level 1 Training, you will learn:

  • The core principles and practice of iRest meditation.
  • How to use iRest for your personal practice.
  • How to teach and deliver iRest simply yet effectively in group and individual settings.


Following the Level 1 Training, you will:

  • Join a global community of teachers teaching iRest in yoga studios, sleep clinics, rehabilitation and healthcare facilities, hospice, prisons, universities, schools, as well as in private practice.
  • Be able to list yourself on the IRI website as a Level 1 Teacher in Training.
