June 26-29, 2015 (Friiday-Monday)

All levels welcome.
Some yoga experience recommended.

Cultivate energy and awareness through the practice of Vinyasa Yoga and Soto Zen.


Vinyasa Yoga and Soto Zen both explore the cultivation of energy, as well as emphasize self inquiry and awareness of breath to access internal layers of consciousness, vitality and peace. We will utilize techniques from both traditions as an entryway into the physical aspects of Vinyasa Flow and sitting meditation. Participants can expect daily flow and restorative yoga as well as meditation instruction and exploration of Zen teachings. One-on-one time with instructors will also be offered. Come “as is” and expect to return enlivened, grounded, replenished and supported, with tools to nourish your practice and being.


Retreat Fee: $265 ($225/Member)
