We’re delighted to welcome James Reeves back to Whitespace to teach this 5-day immersion. Yoga Nidra is a transformative state of deep relaxation and one of the fastest-growing yoga practices in the world today.

Unique and life changing, the meditative practice of iRest Yoga Nidra enables profound insight and healing to take place. Developed by Richard Miller it has been substantiated by extensive and continuing research proving it can resolve trauma, pain, chemical dependency and stress, and increase general wellbeing.

This is your opportunity to be amongst the first teachers to offer this teaching in Europe, and to join a thriving community of iRest Yoga Nidra teachers around the world


The course will provide an understanding of:

  • The historical context and path of meditation in which iRest is embedded
  • The Eastern and Western psycho-spiritual perspectives that form the path of meditation and iRest
  • The evidence-based research showing the efficacy of iRest and its use with different psycho-physical issues and populations
  • iRest within the context of meditation
  • The teacher-student relationship, teaching issues and ethical considerations
  • The Ten Steps of iRest
  • How to use iRest for your personal practice
  • How to teach iRest to groups and individuals

The training provides the opportunity to participate in group lectures and peer discussion groups, and to receive and participate in multiple iRest experiential group and one-on-one practice sessions.


Level 1 iRest Yoga Nidra training is a five-day immersion comprising theory, practice and discussion, suitable for anyone interested in deepening their own practice or working with yoga Nidra in a yogic or therapeutic setting. It will provide you with the basic principles, history, theory, practice and delivery of iRest and allow you to incorporate the simple 10-step iRest protocol into your personal life, professional teaching or clinical practice.


Although the roots of Yoga Nidra lie in thousands of years of philosophies and practices, iRest (‘integrative restoration’) Yoga Nidra carefully and purposefully applies them to our modern-day outlooks and needs. The practice encompasses the teachings of mindfulness and then goes beyond, into the experience of dissolving one’s self – of being completely absorbed in the experience of yoga (meaning to feel interconnected and whole). iRest Yoga Nidra enables you to explore deep movements of meditation and skilfully enquire in to the structures of yourself, which can ultimately lead to profound insight and healing…

iRest Yoga Nidra was created by Richard Miller, PhD, a clinical psychologist, author, researcher, yogic scholar and founder of the Integrative Restoration Institute (IRI). iRest Yoga Nidra is applied in settings not previously open to traditional yoga practices, such as in military and healthcare organizations, and is used globally by doctors, nurses, massage therapists, alternative therapists, psychoanalysts and psychologists.
