Life can be hard. iRest can help.

iRest is a simple and accessible form of meditation designed for modern day living.

Backed by extensive research, iRest can help people navigate all of life’s challenges and enhance one’s sense of well being and peace.

iRest® Yoga Nidra is an evidence-based transformative practice of deep relaxation and meditative inquiry that releases negative emotions and thought patterns, calms the nervous system, and develops an inner state of well-being and equanimity that underlies all circumstance you may encounter in your life. Research has shown iRest effectively reduces PTSD, depression, anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, and chemical dependency, as well as an overall increase in well-being. Its practice is integrative as it heals the various unresolved issues and traumas that are present in your body and mind, and restorative as it enables you to recognize your innate peace of mind that is always present amidst all changing circumstances of life. iRest provides you with tools to help you relax deeply, release stress, increase resiliency, improve your interpersonal relationships and provide you with greater mastery and control in your life. iRest nourishes noble qualities such as joy, peacefulness, empathy, forgiveness, patience and loving kindness toward yourself and others. People who practice iRest report:

  • Greater ability to relax and enjoy life
  • Reduced insomnia and levels of stress
  • Increased inner peace and well-being
  • Reduced depression, fear and anxiety
  • Improved interpersonal relations
  • Reduced chronic and acute pain

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.

Pam Roberts is a Certified iRest® Meditation Teacher, who has been teaching this practice since 2013. She offers iRest Yoga Nidra in the following formats:

Pam Robert’s offering of iRest Yoga Nidra is simply magical!  iRest has provided me great comfort, and healing during a very difficult time in my life.  I have been able to work through many things on a subconscious level due to this practice, and Pam’s soothing, nurturing, and loving energy.


She provides safety, and comfort for her students; something anyone dealing with stress, anxiety, PTSD, and/or depression will greatly appreciate.  Pam shares the wisdom with her students, that there is nothing wrong, there is nothing to fix, nor change, and to just let everything be, just as it is.  This is not an easy thing to grasp initially, however, with Pam’s loving kindness, and guidance, I promise you, it does get easier.


Pam provides the foundations for a life-long journey of self-compassion, and awareness.  A bonus is the lovely voice recording of the iRest practice, recorded by Pam.  The recording makes it easy to integrate the iRest practice into your daily life, and routine.


The beauty of iRest is that no practice, nor experience is ever the same. Each time I have entered an iRest practice, I leave with some new item of wisdom and/or truth; from the need to forgive, to the warmth of lightness in heart, and mind.  I have left Pam’s class feeling safe, secure, calm, and confident.  I have learned to listen to my heart more, to step out of my own head; to go a little deeper, and to linger a little longer.  iRest has provided me with some very deep, and powerful realizations.


I honestly cannot recommend Pam’s iRest Yoga Nidra course enough!  I encourage anyone, and everyone to try this profound practice.  I am eternally grateful to Pam for introducing me to iRest, and for being such a wonderful, and compassionate teacher.”
