Introduction to iRest® Yoga Nidra

iRest is a meditation practice based on the ancient Yoga Nidra tradition. iRest was developed by Dr. Richard Miller and is backed by extensive research, in treating anxiety, PTS, trauma and pain management. iRest is simple to learn and is appropriate for anyone.
iRest can help you cope with daily stress, decrease depression and anxiety, resolve trauma and improve your sleep.
In this workshop we will discuss the steps of iRest, including body sensing, setting an intention and connecting with our inner resource. There will be some movement and then we will settle in for a 35 minute practice. iRest is typically practiced lying down, although you have the option of sitting. All are welcome!

Yoga Lab:

The forgotten foot: Yoga workshop for the feet

 

The foot is our foundation, similar to the roots of a tree.  If our foundation isn’t solid, then our house will be unstable.  There are 26 bones, 33 joints, over 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments, and over 7,000 nerve endings in the foot.  That means 25% of all the bones in a human body are in the feet! Unfortunately, most of us don’t pay attention to our feet until there is something wrong.  

In this workshop you will learn:
Basic anatomy of the foot and ankle
Poses for stretching, strengthening and balance for the foot
How to ease common conditions such as plantar fasciitis, low arches, flat feet, Achilles tendinitis and bunions
How to reconnect to the forgotten foot
Simple yoga home practice to stay connected to the foot
