iRest Yoga Nidra for CPTSD Video
« on: February 03, 2017, 08:52:05 PM »
Here is a link for a yoga practice you can do called iRest, it's more like a guided meditation where you lie down and listen as the founder, Richard Miller guides you through body sensing. I have found this practice incredibly helpful for healing PTSD and he developed the program specifically for woking with traumatized military veterans. There is a lot of research to back up it's success and it's so so helpful with symptoms and an over-activated nervous system. There is a whole program, if you like it, where you can order the book and/or cd and do it on your own pretty easily (the book has all the practice 'scripts' so you can record in your own voice, which is supposed to be even more effective). If it makes you 'twitch' just know that is stored trauma being somatically released from your system and notice it. I find it really helps me let go and my nervous system is so soothed, it has also helped me with accepting/tolerating difficult feelings and emotions as well as reducing chronic pain. I've studied with this guy personally and he is an amazing human. Hope you enjoy!

Thank you, this information is really useful! :bigwink: At the very beginning, when I did not know what yoga was, I faced a number of problems. It all started from the beginning when buying a yoga mat. If you're just dipping into a yoga practice, you might assume that finding a yoga mat is pretty easy. However, there are a few elements that you should consider before buying a yoga mat. Take a look at these points and take an inventory of what is important and necessary for your lifestyle so that you can make the most informed decision when buying your new carpet. I was able to understand only thanks to https://yogapractice.com/yoga/yoga-mats-the-best-of-the-best/ . I hope this information will be useful .

Is this different from other Yoga Nidra practices? I already use yoga nidra meditations from YouTube and take myself through the process too, just lately I have done it when I settle for bed and have found my sleep to be much better, up disturbed for a change. There is no need for a yoga mat to practice yoga nidra by the way.
