Sliding Scale: $95 – 200. Code SF1D20.
Note: The average cost per person, per day to Spirit Rock to offer a program is $160.

At the heart of both the Buddhist and Hindu lineages are practices that prepare the practitioner for transformative insight. Yoga cultivates states of stability, empowerment, and embodiment. For students of either meditation or yoga, we’ll learn a sequence of movement warm-ups that lead into breathwork and an exploration of subtle energy. All of the practices are internally focused and accessible to all bodies. The focus is on intimacy with the body as an energetic field, and on bringing loving awareness to the complex beauty of our human experience. Students who wish to have a full yoga asana practice in their day should plan for that outside of the workshop time. Simple seated practices will be offered, and yoga mats will not be used.

This program will be video and audio recorded for an online audience. By attending, you consent to being videotaped and included in the program recording.
