Yoga and Zen: Staying True

Jan 28 - Feb 02, 2018 Begins in 2 months
with Tias Little & Henry Shukman

“In times of crisis and distress it can be challenging to hold to our yoga and Zen practice,” write the leaders. “During this week, we’ll rekindle the inner fires that help us stay true to ourselves and to the needs of this beautiful, troubled world. We will immerse ourselves in the river of practice in order to steep in the wisdom it brings. Through the alchemy of yoga and Zen — sitting, walking, doing postures, and flowing in the SATYA (Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement) movements — we can reconnect with our underlying courage and commitment to live a wholesome life.
