FLOW: Meditation and Yoga

Katharine Kaufman

April 10–12, 2015

Tuition $190 + 2 nights

We have all had moments or days that flow well. This delightful motion may begin in what the yogis call “nadis,” or energetic channels, which run throughout our bodies. Our individual rhythms are unique and in “flow” we are free of striving, finding lightness and ease while inhabiting our body. We discover that stillness, small movements, and simply being present with our breath allow us to unearth our quiet wisdom, as well as prepare us for more spectacular sequences of postures. When we return to stillness, we are different from having moved.

In this retreat, we will investigate this interplay of movement and stillness by partnering sitting meditation with yoga. We will practice a variety of creative asana sequences, deepening and refreshing our practice. By listening to our body’s natural flow rather than demanding a certain performance, we may experience a practice that is rich, refreshing, nourishing, and supports our well-being.
