Return to your true nature with powerful practices that can transform your life.
Through Zen and yoga we engage deeply and intimately with the immediate experience of being alive, reconnecting with the original radiance and natural spaciousness of our body and mind.
Join a community of practitioners sharing yoga, meditation, meals, and discussions about Zen. Our gentle schedule supports you to cultivate a stable, relaxed, and pain-free meditation posture, and allows you to deeply rest, rejuvenate, and invigorate your body and mind. You will shed layers of tension and stress, opening to a greater sense of clarity, ease, and connection.
Please bring a yoga sticky mat and a thick bath towel.

Samantha Ostergaard is a Zen student and yoga teacher who has used yoga to support her zazen practice for almost fifteen years. Her teaching of yoga is deeply influenced by Zen Buddhism, and in her retreats she teaches yoga as a meditative practice of paying close attention to the body, the breath, and the mental and emotional processes. Samantha lived and practiced at Tassajara for three years, receiving lay ordination from Zoketsu Norman Fischer in 2000.
