Joyful Ease: Your Own True Body, TJ 8/12 – 8/17

Tassajara Aug 12, 2018 - Aug 17, 2018 Reserve Online

with Patricia Sullivan and Eijun Linda Cutts
August 12 – 17, 2018 (Sunday – Friday)

All levels welcome.

Turning the light of awareness inward; finding nourishing integration through yoga and Zen.

Our morning yoga classes will include traditional yoga postures interwoven with simple movements that release compensatory habit patterns and reintroduce stability where it is lacking. Thus we can awaken to a more refined awareness of our relationship with gravity and greater freedom from the limitations caused by misalignments. In Patricia’s approach to Hatha Yoga, although we work deeply, often spending time in poses in order to thoroughly explore them and become sensitive to our own inner workings, it is not a “yoga workout” or vinyasa flow style. The afternoon yoga will be primarily restorative, with pranayama (breathing awareness and exercises) and meditation. We’ll also engage with Zen practice through zazen, dharma talks, discussion, and direct experience of our subtle and expansive nature with a thoroughly grounded sense of joyful ease.
