“iRest Yoga Nidra is the piece that was missing from the PTSD program. It fits with everything they teach us, but it also teaches us a way to find our own peace without drugs or counseling that we can use once we get out of the program. It is the one thing I know I’m going to keep doing when I leave.” Vietnam Vet
