welcome to yogani
Yogani offers a variety of retreats throughout the United States and internationally. We focus on the traditional idea of retreat as a way of creating new space in ones life that translates seamlessly back into daily life. This space is in the mind and in the heart. We will use yogic practices from all the limbs of yoga moving back and forth from movement to stillness, breath control and deepening inward awareness.

iRest Yoga Nidra Enjoying your Yoga practice? Ready to dive further into your practice of self-inquiry? Come experience authentic, deep relaxation through “yogic sleep with awareness.” iRest Yoga Nidra has been developed over the past twenty-six years by Richard Miller, PhD, a clinical psychologist, author, researcher and yogic scholar, and is uniquely suitable for a Western audience. iRest (Integrative Restoration) is integrative, in that it heals the various unresolved issues, traumas, and wounds that are present in the body and mind. It is restorative in that it aids its practitioners in recognizing their underlying peace of mind that is always present amidst all changing circumstances of life. By building a secure launching point for the body to come into a deep state of ease we are able to relax deeply into being with everything just as it is. Extensive research has shown that iRest effectively supports the healing process across a broad range of populations. Currently, there are iRest programs in military hospitals across the U.S., as well as in correctional facilities, hospices, clinics, schools, and organizations supporting personal growth and well-being. In June of 2010, iRest was endorsed by the US Army Surgeon General and Defense Centers of Excellence as a complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). During your practice of iRest, you will be supported in a reclined position by bolsters and blankets as the facilitator takes you through a meditation that involves body sensing, intention setting, emotional awareness and the practice of finding an inner resource. No physical asana (postures) will be practiced. This practice is suitable for ALL levels of practitioners as it is a guided meditation. Become more grounded, focused and at peace. Embody serenity.
