Join certified iRest teacher Jenny E. Orona for a 1.5 hour workshop on the soothing grounds of Seton Cove. We will meet November 20, 2019 from 12-1:30pm.
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. 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).
How It Works
iRest 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.
People using iRest report:
- Decreased stress, anxiety, fear and depression
- Decreased insomnia and sleep disturbances
- Decreased perception of chronic and acute pain
- Improved interpersonal relations
- Increased energy levels
- Increased sense of control in their lives
- More confidence and joy in their lives
- Experiencing peace amidst the changing circumstances of life
- Greater sense of peace and well-being
iRest programs are typically taught as a guided meditation. Students can expect to lie down or sit comfortably during the practice. iRest is suitable for all levels, wear comfortable clothing and bring a journal for reflection.

Jenny Orona began her teaching career in 2006. After sustaining an almost debilitating injury to her spine, a friend of her suggested she try yoga for the chronic pain she endured. She noticed the injury was getting better and made a commitment to become a yoga teacher. It is this commitment that led her to become a Yoga Therapist, incorporating more than 2000 hours of study. It is this knowledge that drives her to find a practice for every “body.” Orona incorporates movement, breath, meditation and sound into her classes, making them accessible to all levels.
She is currently working at Seton Shoal Creek as part of the Expressive Therapy Department, bringing yoga to 5 distinct populations. Along with her public work she also works privately with clients incorporating her dual training in Hatha, Kundalini and most recently her studies have taken her toward Mr. Desikachars lineage through studies with her teacher Chase Bossart, completing an additional 300-hour training. Incorporating Ayurveda, the sister lineage to Hatha she has been studying with Elizabeth Cunningham Bossart for more than 2 years, completing a 100-hour program in 2017.
