July 11-15, 2018 |  Tassajara Zen Center; Carmel, CA
Yoga and Zen: Embodied Practice, Embodied Wisdom
Zen and Yoga are paths of practice that begin with outer form and movement which slowly, over time permeate our depth of being. Both zen and yoga can seem inaccessible or practices of which we have only a superficial understanding. In this retreat, through our own love of these practices and our love of teaching together, we will demystify the zen forms and yoga asanas to offer a personal and tangible connection to both these practices. Our yoga sessions will include both active and restorative poses, combined with breath work, with an emphasis on gaining sensory awareness and embodied presence. We will explore Tassajara’s altars, make friends with zendo etiquette, and walk the paths in meditation to reveal the magic of this valley where Zen practice has continued uninterrupted for the past 50 years.
