iRest Yoga Nidra for People With Chronic Pain is a toolbox of trauma-sensitive practices designed to help those who experience chronic pain. These practices were developed to help people find a sense of ease and spaciousness in daily life, manage their pain, and build resiliency.
There are four practices in the program. The first yoga nidra is an exploration of “inner resource” (the felt sense in our bodies that helps us feel relaxed and in control of our experience). You’ll explore a sensation-based visualization that’s designed to connect you to your inner resource.
In the second yoga nidra practice, a yoga nidra for security and well-being, you’ll notice sensations throughout your body and let your breath saturate different areas as you cultivate an abiding sense of ease.
In the third practice, you’ll work with color to cope with chronic pain. By assigning colors (or “mists”) to your breathing pattern and noting emotions that arise, you can cultivate a sense of spaciousness that is untouched by all that’s coming and going in your life.
In the fourth yoga nidra, you’ll explore working with the emotions that result from loss or other challenging circumstances. Stephanie guides you to feel an emotion and its opposite (a practice that can reveal deeper layers of emotion and help you build resilience).
All of the yoga nidras can be done seated, lying down, or standing.
These calming yoga nidras can provide a peaceful respite and have a positive, long-lasting impact on your life.
