Meditation and yoga are natural partners in the spiritual life. Drawing on the Buddha’s teachings of mindfulness and awakening, and the yoga teachings of Patanjali, this retreat will combine the practices of Hatha Yoga and Insight Meditation.
The Yoga is offered as a spiritual path rather than simply an exercise system. Slow precise movement attuned with the flow of breath, enables practitioners to move safely into and out of posture.
Through the practice of meditative awareness, the body becomes a gateway to inner peace and understanding, enabling us to open into an intimate connection with life.
Please bring a yoga mat if you have one.
