The hindrances that arise for each of us throughout our day-to-day lives can be just as unwelcome as our current pandemic. Similarly, we often focus on hindrances as something to get rid of, push through, or work on and leave behind. However, in this retreat we will investigate how external challenges and barriers of body and mind can actually lead to insight and a deeper connection to life. The yoga practice will be both dynamic and restorative, with a focus on inner alignment and awakening to sensation. We will bring curiosity and skillful sequencing to allow tension in the body to unwind and to reconnect to our vitality. Zen meditation will focus on the direct connection to our immediate, intimate experience with life—hindrances and all. These teachings meet every moment, pandemic and beyond.
