Wisdom of the Body: Yoga and Meditation Retreat
October 22–25, 2020
Note: This program is being rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please see updates about SMC’s response to the pandemic here.
You’ve experienced joy and health, pain and loss. You’ve tested your physical limits, and have recovered from surgeries. You’ve traveled, shared insights, and cared for others. Now it’s time to attend to your body as it is today.
In this retreat, you are invited to practice with a fresh perspective that acknowledges your mind and body’s wisdom. Starting from the ground and building to heart centering postures, we will learn the Four Ways of Being With Body. Through a variety of sequences–both restorative and flowing–we’ll support sitting, walking, standing, and lying meditation postures. We’ll gain strength and coax flexibility.
Emerge from the retreat with a new lens on your unique experiences, and rich understanding of how to practice Yoga and Meditation safely and wisely whether practicing alone or in a group.
