with Stacie Overby and Jokai Carolyn Cavanagh
July 18-20, 2014 (Friday-Sunday)
1 year of yoga practice recommended.
Immerse yourself in the practice of ease - cultivating a place to rest inside through mindful, vinyasa flow yoga and Zen meditation.
When we practice yoga with the intention of cultivating self awareness and refining our ability to focus our attention, we truly embark upon a meditation in motion. The rhythmic syncing of breath with movement facilitates a deep connection towards one's inner being - a journey home to oneself, a place we can rest inside. Each day will include yoga practices, dharma teachings and meditation. The integration of these practices will provide a rich tapestry of experience intended to ease and open the heart, body and mind. There will also be ample time to enjoy Tassajara's hot springs and surrounding wilderness, bringing our practice back into the world.

Stacie Overby views yoga as a spiritual, psychological, and energetic journey that inspires greater understanding of and connection to the true Self within. She believes in the potency of breath as the most powerful natural resource for deep transformation and connection to spirit. Her vigorous Vinyasa-style classes emphasize the integration of breath and movement, meditation and pranayama transforming the practice into a holistic exploration of the mind, body and soul. She also draws on her background as a dancer to evoke inner grace and balance in a safe, creative environment. Jokai Carolyn Cavanagh
