June long weekend 2017: 9 to 12 June
Yoga and meditation offer relief from stress and anxiety and a a way of getting out of your head. iRest® is more. iRest is based on ancient wisdom and enhanced by a modern understanding of psychology and neuroscience. Evidence based research has shown that iRest nurtures lasting well-being, heals deep traumas, and builds resilience to meet the challenges and stresses of life. These benefits extend beyond the practice mat and into everyday life
Through regular practice we may find ourselves in a state that words fail to describe, which we might call a state of "pure Being". When we come into the simplicity and stillness of pure Being, there is a familiarity about it, like coming home at last. Retreat is an opportunity to immerse in practices that assist in bringing us into that deep stillness. Please join Tina on this retreat to pause from the usual pattern of day to day life and immerse in deep stillness, coming home to rest in Being.
Retreat will have the following elements:
This Come Home to Being iRest retreat is especially suitable for people who have some experience in iRest as practitioners and teachers, and also to people who have past meditation and yoga nidra experience in different traditions. However if you have little experience and feel deeply called to attend, do register.
This retreat has deliberately restricted numbers in order to create a beautiful and intimate atmosphere for self-inquiry and spiritual growth. A retreat this small is not possible when attending an official Integrative Restoration Institute (IRI) retreat, so this retreat is a special opportunity to immerse in these lovely practices. Because of the limited places it is advisable not to sit on your decision to attend for too long.
This retreat will be held at the beautiful Lokananda Retreat Centre, 9 Main Road, Point Pass, 90 minutes from the CBD.
Registration opens at 4pm on Friday with dinner at 6.30 and the first session at 7.45pm. Retreat ends after lunch on Monday at 1.45pm.
Full Cost is $710 Early Bird discount price is $640 for payments in full by 31 March.
Retreat Leader: Tina Shettigara
Tina Shettigara is an IRI Certified iRest Yoga Nidra Teacher®, a Level 2 Yoga Australia Registered Yoga Teacher and Level 2 Hanna Somatics Educator and Director of Yoga Spirit Studios. Having developed a fascination for all things Indian early in life, the pathway into yoga was a natural progression. Tina also immersed in Indian philosophy, religion and culture. When she discovered iRest many seemingly disparate teachings were brought together for her. It is now her joy, heartfelt mission and commitment to share iRest with the community.
This is not an official IRI iRest retreat and will not fulfill the requirements of a short retreat for Teacher Certification in iRest. However if people who are enrolled in the Certification program are attending, Tina will run a tutorial session in a break, so bring your questions along.
