Event Details

Zen Mind Yoga Body

A Day-long Retreat
Sunday, April 22
9:30 am - 5 pm
Green Gulch Farm Yurt

with Robert Thomas and Samantha Ostergaard

Return to your true nature with powerful practices that can transform your life.

In this day-long retreat we will explore the integration of yoga practice and Zen meditation, and experience how the body and mind can work together to achieve clarity, stability and relaxation. As long-time practitioners of both yoga and Zen Buddhism, Samantha and Robert integrate yoga and Zen as complementary spiritual practices, supporting and guiding the group with a combination of yoga poses, sitting and walking meditation, and lively dharma discussion.

The yoga practice will prepare your body and mind for meditation posture, and is for all levels of ability. No previous meditation or Buddhist experience necessary—beginners are welcome!

Please bring a yoga sticky mat and a thick bath towel. Lunch is included.
