An intensive mindfulness experience to help you find your center just in time for the holidays.
The pandemic has left many of us feeling stressed, anxious or just out of synch in our lives. Whether that resonates or not consider this might be a great time to . . .
Treat yourself to a time out.
Tune out the busyness of the city and join us for this urban meditation retreat. 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 meditation practice.
During the three Monday meetings you’l practice breathing, concentration, relaxation, seated and walking meditation. The Saturday meeting offers you the opportunity to experience a day of mindfulness, which will include seated and walking meditation, deep relaxation, a dharma talk and a mindful meal. You will experience the deepening that a day dedicated to turning inward provides.
Please be willing to commit to a 5 minute daily practice for the duration of the workshop.
Previous experience is not necessary to participate.

Cost is $195 for online only participation.
TESTIMONIAL: My husband and I use the meditation techniques learned in Urban Reset every day, and they have kept us grounded and positive throughout the pandemic – even through having a long and serious bout of COVID-19 ourselves. Our “happiness scores” on the ReWi app survey have continued to increase throughout 2020, despite increased life difficulties, and we attribute this to the daily meditation practice we learned from Kim. I would highly recommend Urban Reset in the best of times, and even more so right now! ~ MC, Neuroscientist

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.
$180 (includes all 10 sessions)
Coming Soon. Please contact Kim to be placed on waitlist to be notified. email@example.com
The Yoga Sutras are 196 aphorisms divided into four books. They are considered the authoritative text on Classical Yoga.
This text enjoys wide applicability even to our modern lives. The Sutras provide a fresh means of looking at our humanity as well as tools for living our best lives.
The Sutras are divided into four chapters, each with its own theme. Each sutra or thread is multi-layered in meaning. In our monthly meetings we will dive into the Sanskrit and English translations of the sutras and explore the nuances of meaning.
You will have monthly reading assignments. Once registered you’ll be advised which translation of the sutras to purchase.
$35 for one session or $125 for four.
Retreats offer you the opportunity to take a break from the often frenetic pace of city life, to deepen your connection to yourself and enjoy calm, beautiful surroundings.
