About iRest Yoga Nidra

iRest Yoga Nidra is a research-based meditation, relaxation and healing protocol. The practice of iRest enables you to deeply calm your nervous system, integrate difficult thoughts & emotions, and offers a portal for awakening to your essential nature.

iRest meditation is both an excellent personal practice as well as adjunctive practice for healthcare & healing professionals. Research shows iRest effectively reduces stress, insomnia, anxiety, depression, chronic pain & post-traumatic stress disorder, and enhances joy, equanimity & well-being in daily life.

Through experiential practice and dynamic dialogue:

  • Learn the 10-Step iRest Protocol to enhance your personal meditation practice
  • Explore how to integrate the practices of iRest into daily life
  • Foster well-being and resilience from stress & anxiety
  • Experience BodySensing in movement
  • Practice BreathSensing for resiliency, increased energy and relaxation
  • Learn to skillfully meet difficult emotions and beliefs in daily life
  • Access an inner resource of well-being, ease, security and peace
  • Awaken to your essential wholeness

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 nondual way.  From a life of ever deepening joy, astonishment and Stillness, a heartfelt desire to share these precious teachings has sprung forth.

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.
