Trauma-sensitive Yoga/iRest

Each session introduces a brief explanation of a specific phase in the iRest protocol, followed by a full meditation experience.  iRest is an evidence-based, mind-body approach that is the result of thirty years of observation, research, and hands-on development by Dr. Richard Miller and associates.  Its practice is integrative as it heals the various unresolved issues and traumas that are present in your body and mind, and restorative as it enables you to recognize your innate peace of mind that is always present amidst all changing circumstances of life.
