Half-Day Retreat: Meditation and Yoga with Terry Lesser

Saturday, May 1, 2010, 9am to 12:30pm

In this mini-retreat, we will awaken our bodies, minds and hearts to the present moment. We will integrate yoga, breathwork, meditation, metta (loving kindness), and relaxation and let these practices inform and deepen one another. The morning is appropriate for beginners and those with more experience. Our aim is not perfect poses or perfect meditation, but to connect deeply with ourselves and allow the emergence of our innate wisdom, capabilities, joy, tranquility and compassion.

Terry has been teaching yoga at the Insight Meditation Center (IMC) for over ten years. She trained in Iyengar style yoga and is a graduate of the Spirit Rock Community Dharma Leader Program. She also teaches yoga and meditation at the California Yoga Center in Palo Alto. Her teaching is gentle, supportive, and sensitive to individual students’ abilities.

Please bring a large towel and yoga sticky mat and sitting cushion if you have them. If you don’t, mats and cushions will be available for you to use.
