Description

The Zoom link to participate in this event will be provided on registration. Please call 415-354-0360 if you have any questions.


The three practices of Zen, Yoga, and Alexander Technique share in common the wish to end suffering that is due to habits of separation. In this online workshop, we will explore in zazen (seated meditation), in yogasana (yoga postures), and through the principles of Alexander Technique how the body-mind gets stuck in a fear response. In this challenging time of transition, we need tools and a way to practice with the tension and “dis-ease” that arises with moving into the unknown. This retreat aims to create a calm and stable container and give a practice that will expand awareness and soften our edges. We can loosen and release the physical, mental, and emotional habits of fear.

  • Set up your space to include a yoga mat, 2 yoga blocks, 1 yoga strap, 3 blankets or more, and a chair—any chair will do.
