DENVER PROGRAM: Meditation with Yoga with Katharine Kaufman
April 21, 2012
By cultivating the stillness of sitting meditation with the movement of yoga postures, we can experience an embodied, balanced and whole practice that can influence our lives in infinite ways. In this urban retreat, participants will experience basic yoga postures and be introduced to sitting and walking meditation. Our attention will focus on mindful breathing and developing a practice that honors the living body’s inherent wisdom. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion. This workshop is ideal for beginning and experienced students.
