Event Details

Cost: Sliding Scale $75 – 200. Code DM2D18.

The foundation of Dharma and Yoga is ahimsa or non-harming. Ahimsa can be realized through a kind and nurturing approach to the body. In this day retreat, we will cultivate ahimsa through mindfulness of the nuance of sensation in the body and the subtle pathway of the breath. This will foster calm abiding from which we can see into and transform our underlying habits of aversive thinking and forcing the body.

Our practice will combine mindful asana, somatic movement, pranayama, and meditation on kindness.
By realizing ahimsa in our personal practice, we find connection with all beings.

All levels welcome.

Young Adults (18-26) and Seniors (65+ with limited income) are invited to attend this day for $45.
