Alchemy …

… a process that is so effective it seems like magic. At iRest Meditation retreats, sincere heartfelt practice, with some extraordinary alchemy, will turn the most ordinary of ingredients – sensing Body, Breath, and Mind – into the most profound deep stillness.

Research shows that Yoga and meditation foster health and well-being at every level – physical, emotional, and spiritual. Hence, many people are now turning to Yoga and meditation to support and help themselves, their loved ones and the community at large, as life’s challenges seem increasingly intense.

Discover the Alchemy of Stillness through ancient yogic non-dual teachings, which help us heal the misperception of separation and remember our inherent wholeness and indestructible peace and stillness, no matter our circumstance.

During this retreat you will be guided through simple, pure and direct practices, such as self-inquiry meditation, pranayama, Hatha Yoga, Yoga Nidra, sitting and walking meditation practices.

Join us on this transformative iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation weekend.

No prior experience necessary. Simply bring an open mind and curiosity.

This retreat is lead by Fuyuko Toyota: a senior iRest Trainer, Retreat Leader and Director of iRest Institute Australasia. It will be held in partial silence allowing you to steep in stillness and deep self-inquiry.

This event satisfies the iRest Certification short retreat requirement.
