In this retreat we will develop a continuity of awareness in movement and in stillness. Our focus will be on the first three foundations of mindfulness: mindfulness of the body, of feelings or sensations, and of mental processes. We will integrate guided and silent meditation, moving meditation (yoga poses), breath work, and relaxation, and let the synergy of these practices inform and deepen one another to open heart and mind.
The retreat is appropriate for beginners to either yoga or meditation as well as more experienced yogis and meditators. You do not have to be flexible to do yoga, nor to have a particular body type – you need only to be as you are. We will do simple seated, reclining, and standing movements. Yoga mats are available, but please bring your own if you have one, along with a large towel.
