SUSAN IDE

LICSW, and an iRest (Integrative Restoration) Level II Teacher-in-Training. In addition, Susan is the owner of H.E.A.L. LLC (Healing Essential Aspects in Life).

As a social worker, Susan greatly enjoys trying to help make an impact on helping children and families in our community, as a member of various task forces at the state and local levels. After working for many years in the field of social work, Susan became interested in learning more about iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation after it seemed to implement with her professional background and future pursuits in helping others to develop a more clear sense of self, while fostering potential healing of the mind and body. . Susan has attended two levels of iRest trainings, at Kripalu, in Massachussetts. Susan was interested in this type of evidence-based research meditative practice, because of iRest’s proven ability to lessen symptoms associated with PTSD, depression, anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, and chemical dependency. Susan has been teaching iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation classes, workshops, and staff retreats at local yoga studios, businesses, and homes for approximately four years. Susan offers individual and group sessions, which can last from 35-45 minutes. Susan is able to provide yoga mats, blankets, and pillows upon request, and as a courtesy of her teaching. These essentials help to provide her students more comfort and ease, in order to fully engage in this guided meditation.
