The Integrative Restoration Institute (IRI) provides programs, teacher trainings and retreats that show you how to live a contented life, free of conflict and fear, by opening your mind and body to its inherent ground of health and well-being.
Our MISSION is to help people resolve their pain and suffering and to experience deep healing and peace. As an educational nonprofit, we provide trainings in iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation and spiritual retreats based on the ancient teachings of Yoga. Through our events, participants rediscover their essential wholeness and interconnectedness with all of life, supporting psychological health and spiritual freedom.
Our VISION is to nurture a trusted and engaged community that is dedicated to health, well-being and awakening. Skillful integration of body, mind and spirit leads to fulfillment and authentic participation with the world.
iRest, one of the principal programs offered by IRI, is a research-based transformative practice of deep relaxation and meditative inquiry and is currently being utilized in VA hospitals, military bases, hospitals and clinics, hospice, homeless shelters, community programs, and schools. Research has shown that iRest effectively reduces PTSD, depression, anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain and chemical dependency while increasing health, resiliency, and well-being.
The Integrative Restoration Institute collaborates with research partners, and provides advanced training for health care professionals, yoga and meditation teachers, and individuals looking to facilitate their own personal growth.
Founded in 2006, IRI is a non profit 501(c)(3) under the direction of Richard C. Miller, PhD.
