The Art of Undoing: Yoga and Meditation
June 18–21, 2020
Note: This program has been cancelled for 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please see updates about SMC’s response to the pandemic here.
Are you feeling out of tune? Looking for balance? Do you long to pause, connect with nature and your body’s own wisdom? The pairing of meditation with Yoga is lively, intimate and generous. During this June retreat you’ll release tension and find equanimity with grounded lyrical sequences that develop heart, strength and resilience from the inside. You’ll go outside too; taking your Yoga and meditation practice to the groves, hills and forest of this sacred land. We’ll call on movement from hatha, gentle flow, yin, and restorative Yoga. This retreat is also influenced by dance improv, poetry, Ashtanga, and mind/body wisdom. Feel free, whole and good.
