About Us

The iRest Institute is an educational non-profit that provides events, teacher trainings, and educational content based on the ancient teachings of Yoga Nidra but presented in a form made accessible for modern day living. iRest is designed to bring the healing benefits of yogic and meditative practices to a wide variety of people. 


iRest is practiced and taught by thousands of people worldwide in a number of different organizations that support well-being. We offer programs in yoga studios, community centers, clinics, schools, hospices, correctional facilities, and U.S. military hospitals. Based on current studies with iRest in the military, the Defense Centers of Excellence has approved iRest as a Complementary and Alternative Medicine warranting continuing research for its use in the treatment of PTSD. In addition, the U.S. Army Surgeon General has listed Yoga Nidra (based on research with iRest) as a Tier 1 approach for addressing Pain Management in Military Care.


Our MISSION is to help people resolve their pain and suffering, and experience deep healing and peace.


Our VISION is to nurture an engaged community dedicated to health, well-being and authentic participation with the world.
