iRest Yoga NIdra at Midwest Alliance for Mindfulness with Sydney Spears was an opportunity to work with a master teacher. Sydney was able to teach us the value of iRest as all of us have some trauma to one degree or another and can benefit from the practice of Yoga NIdra. What made this class enjoyable to me were the discussions both pre and post a session. Sydney made the application of the practices seem real and applicable… because she has lots of experience in teaching and dealing with the subject of trauma. I honor her kind and compassionate approach as she led us deeper into ourselves to encourage our own healing.
