Thrive Inside offers a range of courses for inmates and people recently released from prison, and to support the well-being of prison staff.
While one-off workshops or sessions can be arranged, participants will have the best results from a multi-week course.
For example, the standard 8-week course can be delivered as a 2-hour session each week, supported by a workbook and a CD of recorded mediations that inmates can use to practice in their own cell or environment.
Shorter lunchtime sessions of as little as 35 minutes can be made available to staff.
Staff members who participate will be given the Thrive Inside CD with recorded meditations to use at home.
Plans are in place to offer a full range of meditations that can be played back on a closed device so that anyone can access the practices safely.
In addition to courses, more information is available about iRest Yoga Nidra in the book The iRest Programme for PTSD by Dr Richard Miller, PhD, available from Amazon.
Multi-week iRest Yoga Nidra courses include a workbook
