Tina Shettigara and Yoga Spirit Studios are delighted to host a Level 1 Basic training to teach iRest, the first ever in South Australia.
There are so many practices and resources available to try to address the stress and overwhelm that can overtake us when life feels like it’s ‘all too much’, but many fail to get to the root cause of the problem or bring lasting change.
iRest yoga nidra meditation is a powerful and transformative set of tools and techniques that cuts through to uncover and release us from the underlying issues that hold us back from accessing the quiet, peaceful place that exists within all of us.
Developed over 30 years by Richard Miller PhD, iRest Yoga Nidra meditation supports psychological, physical and spiritual health, healing and awakening.
iRest is an accessible meditation protocol that is integrative, as it heals unresolved issues and traumas, and restorative, as it aids practitioners in recognizing the underlying peace of mind that is always present amidst all changing circumstances in life.
Due to its effectiveness and ease of use, iRest has proven to effectively support the healing process across a broad range of populations, including those with PTSD, chronic pain, sleep issues, high stress, depression, and anxiety.
This training teaches you everything you need to know to incorporate the simple 10-step iRest protocol into your personal life, professional teaching or clinical practice.

Fuyuko Sawamura-Toyota is a certified iRest® Senior Trainer, Retreat Leader and Supervisor/Mentor. For the past 20 years she has been deeply committed on the path of Yoga and ancient Nondual wisdom. She is also a qualified Hatha Yoga teacher since 1996.
She incorporates iRest and Self-Inquiry in her teachings of Yoga, Somatic body awareness and meditation at her yoga studio “Prema Yoga” on the Gold Coast, Australia and internationally.
In 2007, Richard Miller, her spiritual mentor, brought to Fuyuko a deeper understanding of living life in a non dual way. From a life of ever deepening joy, astonishment and Stillness, a heartfelt desire to share these precious teachings has sprung forth. She teaches and hosts iRest trainings and retreats in Australia. She has been assisting iRest trainings in North America for Richard Miller and other senior trainers.
“Fuyuko Sawamura-Toyota brings her rich, varied, and decades of experience as both a student and teacher immersed in the various paths of yoga (karma, bhakti, hatha, raja, Jñâna), to the offerings she shares with students, including group and private classes, workshops, retreats, and trainings. She has dedicated her life to service, and to offering in-depth teachings that are informed by the eastern and western nondual wisdom traditions of self-inquiry and meditation.
I deeply respect Fuyuko for how she integrates her grounded presence and deep passion for truth, beauty, love and community when teaching yoga and iRest meditation practices. I thoroughly enjoy working with Fuyuko in the various responsibilities she’s involved in at the Integrative Restoration Institute (IRI) including her role as 1) an iRest Trainer, 2) Certified iRest Teacher, and 3) iRest Supervisor for students fulfilling their iRest Certification.
I am deeply grateful for Fuyuko’s ability to bring these precious nondual teachings forward into the world. I hope you take advantage of sharing time with Fuyuko in her upcoming offerings.”
