‘The gift of learning to meditate is the greatest gift you can give yourself in this life.’

Sogyal Rimpoche

meditation

Meditation is one of the most powerful tools to help us restore the harmony within and to gain access to our inner intelligence. In meditation, we re-discover the silence in our mind and make it part of our life. Silence is the birthplace of happiness; it is where we get our bursts of inspiration, our feelings of compassion, our sense of love. Meditation is a journey to freedom and self-knowledge. It is the foundation for consistent spiritual evolution.

Our minds become quiet allowing our bodies to rest deeply releasing stress and fatigue. We re-connect with our essence which extends into our daily lives bringing benefits such as a clearer and more creative mind, increased effectiveness, reduced stress, improved health, greater happiness and more rewarding relationships. Meditation is a powerful tool for personal and world transformation. It is a key to lasting growth and development.

What others say…

For me Mita’s yoga class is an essential nourishment for my soul and a complete mind, body and spirit experience. I have been attending Mita’s yoga classes for many years and I always go away learning something different after each class. Each class is a unique experience. Thank you Mita!

My reasons for wanting to take up meditation were primarily to have some peace of mind. I wanted to not always be so pessimistic, take a step back think about how to react without reacting in a negative way. I thnk your course has given me the foundations to start this way of life and more importantly live in this moment.   All in all for myself I think it was one of the most valuable and positive experiences of my life and I will work very hard to make it a way of life.

RM, Watford

The classes were an excellent way of reaffirming the meditation and kept me focused. Now once they are over, till I have a very strong self discipline, I think it would be great to attend refresher / group meditation sessions. I found the course very good. It has helped me to be calmer during the stressful situations and it has made me feel that through meditation there is so much to be achieved at a personal level.

AM, Pinner

If anyone has even the remotest interest in meditation and mindfulness and wishes to start a journey of what it may mean to fall awake, then these sessions with Mita will be fascinating, enriching and quite possibly a catalyst for personal positive change and growth.

IGS, Harrow

The course is excellent and has really helped motivate me to meditate. I have become a calmer, happier and healthier person. My mind is clearer and I am able to take all the challenges of my life in my stride. Through meditation I feel as though I can nurture the spiritual side of my self.

PS, Bushey

I found the meditation course very useful and inspiring. The combination between your reading, explanations and practice exercises has been wonderful to have a better understanding about what meditation is and the ways that can help us. Also, your place is very inspiring and loving, and the notes that you has typed about the sessions are very useful.

iREST® YOGA NIDRA MEDITATION COURSE

 

What is iRest Yoga Nidra?

iRest Yoga Nidra (‘integrative restoration’) is a deep relaxation, a self-inquiry and a meditation. It is integrative because it supports participants in becoming fully functioning, integrated and healthy human beings. It is restorative because it seeks to enable participants to recover their innate sense of joy, peace and wellbeing, enabling feelings of connection with themselves and all of life.

Though its roots lay in thousands of years of philosophies and practices, iRest Yoga Nidra carefully and purposefully applies them to our modern-day outlooks and needs.

iRest Yoga Nidra enables you to explore deep movements of meditation and skillfully enquire into the structures of yourself, which can ultimately lead to profound insight and healing.

Through the process of iRest Yoga Nidra the senses and thinking mind are calmed and you experience the part of you that is unchanging, ever present and always at peace.

iRest has the support of both the yogic community and the scientific community, as the teachings are firmly grounded in ancient yogic wisdom, and contemporary research has shown it to be effective in:

  • Increasing inner peace, resilience and well-being
  • Reducing depression, fear, trauma and anxiety
  • Increasing our ability to relax and enjoy life
  • Reducing insomnia and levels of stress
  • Improving interpersonal relationships
  • reducing chronic and acute pain
  • Developing a deep capacity to meet any and all circumstances you may encounter in life

iRest is a powerful educational tool that focuses on health and healing at all levels of your life: physical, psychological and spiritual. iRest empowers you to respond to life’s varying circumstances with greater wisdom, inner strength and sensitivity bringing more joy and fulfilment into your being.

How does it work?

iRest offers a step by step practical approach to Meditation which can help you really learn the stages involved in going inward in a safe and practical way. iRest is a practice open to all who are interested in continued transformation, discovering their home-ground of wellbeing and exploring the depths of the word ‘yoga’ – to feel at one with everything.

Research has shown Yoga Nidra informed by iRest effectively reduces, insomnia, chronic pain, chemical dependency, P.T.S.D, depression, anxiety and the physical symptoms of stress.

In this six week course we will be exploring aspects of the practice which include:

  • Cultivating a place within where we may feel completely at ease.
  • Exploring what we really wish for ourselves and our life.
  • Tools for complete relaxation of the body and mind.
  • Befriending and exploring easeful breathing.
  • Learning to welcome and be with feelings, emotions and thoughts.
  • Experiencing a real ease of being – spacious, light, grounded and a deep connection with yourself, your life and all of life around you.
  • And integrate this all back into your daily life…

Each week will consist of a short introduction to the theme for that session and any relevant theory will also be explained. We then dive into the practical, experiential practice. The practice of iRest yoga nidra really supports us to embody the wisdom, rather than just intellectualise it. iRest Yoga Nidra was created by Richard Miller, PhD, a clinical psychologist, author, researcher, yogic scholar and founder of the Integrative Restoration Institute (IRI). It is a unique yoga nidra practice in that it has been substantiated by extensive and continuing research proving it can resolve trauma, pain, chemical dependency and stress, and increase general well being. Richard Miller has dedicated the past 40 years of his life to studying, practicing, teaching and researching yoga nidra.  And the outcome of his decades of work, is Integrative Restoration Yoga Nidra (iRest).
