Workshops/Retreats

Workshops

Workshops are an opportunity to deepen an aspect of your practice with minimal interruption to your daily life.

URBAN RESET

Mondays,

October 15, 22 and 29 
6:30–8:15pm
Saturday, November 3, 10am–2:30pm

Tune out the busyness of the city and join us for this urban meditation workshop. You’ll learn and practice the five mindfulness exercises as taught by Thich Nhat Hanh. Give yourself this gift of deep reflection and grounding and begin to reap the scientifically proven benefits of a dedicated mindfulness practice.  

During the three Monday meetings you’ll practice breathing, concentration, relaxation techniques, seated and walking meditation. The Saturday meeting offers you the opportunity to experience a half day of mindfulness, which will include seated and walking meditation, deep relaxation, a dharma talk and a mindful meal.

Please be willing to commit to a 5-10 minute daily practice for the duration of the workshop.

$160

(includes 4 sessions and Saturday lunch)

YOGA CAMP

November 1 – 16, 6–7:15am

Adults should get to go to camp too! Here’s your opportunity for daily yoga camp without disruption to your regular daily life.

Here’s how it will work: i will develop a sequence for the class. I will teach it at the beginning of camp and give you a written copy of the sequence complete with stick figures. After the first two classes you will practice at your own pacing using the printed copy. 

Each day when you arrive you can let me know where in the sequence you would like support/tips. I will work with you individually when you reach that point in the sequence.

This is an amazing opportunity for you to practice daily and to receive individual attention, which will support you in developing your practice.  You will see what you can achieve in a short period of time with repeated practice. You will also get to enjoy the many benefits of a devoted daily practice.
