Flex your meditation muscles with us. Join us online for Mindful Mondays to:

This 4-week online series will be led by local yoga and meditation instructor Turi Hetherington.
In this series Turi will share the 10-step protocol of iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation. iRest is short for Integrative Restoration, a contemporary adaptation of the ancient teachings of yoga and meditation. It weaves together eastern philosophy with modern-day psychology and neuroscience to bring a sense of balance and ease to body, mind and spirit.
As an evidence-based meditation protocol, iRest is used at US Veterans Affairs hospitals and military bases across the country. Research shows iRest effectively reduces stress, insomnia, anxiety, depression, chronic pain and post-traumatic stress disorder, and enhances joy, equanimity and wellbeing in daily life.
Recordings will be posted weekly, on Mondays, on the BPL YouTube Channel. Listen at your leisure throughout the week as you flex those meditation muscles. Each session will focus on a specific component of the practice to welcome, witness, experience, observe, and reflect on sensations, feelings, emotions, thoughts, beliefs and your innate wholeness, without judgement or needing to fix or change anything. No experience needed, just an open heart and open mind and healthy sense of curiosity.
As a yoga and meditation instructor, Turi enjoys holding space for others to connect to their essential nature of wholeness, peace and joy. She is actively involved with our local Concussion Resource Center and responsible for bringing the LoveYourBrain Yoga program to the state of Montana. Turi is an E-RYT200, RYT500 and YACEP, Heart of Sound: Mantra and Nada Yoga certified, an iRest® Yoga Nidra Level 2 Teacher, LoveYourBrain certified, a Holistic Health Coach and, her proudest accomplishment, a mom.
