The Yoga of Shambhala: Embodied Enlightenment with Dana Strong

July 29–August 1, 2007

Tuition $135 + 3 nights

Registration for the Yoga of Shambhala retreat is now closed.

In the time of the Buddha, yoga and meditation were considered inseparable practices on the path to enlightenment. Over time it seems the road has forked, and each practice has lost some of its potency without the other. Just as we train our bodies, we can train our minds. If the body feels blocked, the mind becomes anxious and heavy. Join us to discover the interconnection between yoga and meditation from the Shambhala perspective. This program will include a personal posture consultation, advice for establishing a home practice and specific yoga sequences that support a healthy meditation practice. Students at all levels of practice welcome.

We invite you to take both The Yoga of Shambhala and Enlightened World: The Three Yanas of Shambhala Buddhardharma for the discounted rate of $275 tuition + 7 nights lodging & meals.

Dana Strong, a student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, has taught yoga in New York for 10 years under the guidance of Rodney Yee. She has cotaught OM yoga’s teacher-training program and led yoga at last year’s Shambhala Mountain Winter Dathün. She also teaches yoga at Riker’s Island prison. Her teaching style combines the fluidity of breath with the precision of alignment in order to open the body and ease the mind.
