“It is like an upgrading of the software of my life and has been instrumental in helping me to be more at home with myself at all levels of being. – Leigh Blashki, Melbourne, President, Yoga Australia”
After 35+ years of yoga/meditation teaching it was a thrill to experience and learn more about this beautiful and effective approach to the traditional practice of Yoga Nidra. As a teacher and therapist I am always keen to further my knowledge and skills and undertaking both level 1 and level 2 training (and now currently undertaking level 3/certification) has provided a quantum leap in what I can offer students and clients. This leap however comes from more than just the ‘knowledge’ gained. It also comes from a most remarkable deepening and enriching of my own personal meditation, which the regular practice of iRest has unfolded and which informs my work with students and clients.
iRest for me is not only something to be practiced. It is like an upgrading of the software of my life and has been instrumental in helping me to be more at home with myself at all levels of being.”
– Leigh Blashki, Melbourne, President, Yoga Australia
“iRest is a profound tool which can enhance any therapy. My hope is that anyone struggling with his or her own life challenges, or searching for deeper meaning to life, will have the same opportunity to experience this life-giving practice as I have.”
