If stress, insomnia or physical or emotional pain are your daily companions or those of the people you work with, Hallie can help  with iRest® Yoga Nidra, an evidence based practice of deep relaxation and nervous system release. 

In iRest® Yoga Nidra your brain waves slow, your body is fully and deeply relaxed and your mind is in a conscious state of restful alertness where thoughts cease and you experience the effects of three to four hours of sleep in less than thirty minutes. You wake up clear headed and ready to resume your workday. The effects also produce a continued state of well being and sound sleep at night.

In research studies, iRest® Yoga Nidra has been shown to increase serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin, the “feel good” chemicals of the brain, and reduce toxic cortisol release during stress, resulting in significantly lower levels of anxiety, depression and anger. 

iRest® Yoga Nidra was developed by Richard Miller, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist, who worked with the military to bring it to  Walter Reed Medical Center and other U.S. military settings to help soldiers and veterans heal from post traumatic stress, depression, insomnia, chronic pain and other stress related issues.

Stress, past trauma or pain interferes with energy levels, clear thinking, creative problem solving and balance in work and relationships. iRest® Yoga Nidra provides you with tools to reduce stress, enhance resilience and reduce pain. Everybody can benefit from the practice of iRest® Yoga Nidra.

Having received advanced training from the Integrative Restoration Institute and Richard Miller, Hallie teaches iRest® Yoga Nidra to therapists, parents, lawyers, entrepreneurs, corporate executives, college students, artists, writers and many groups and individuals across the country.
