Meditation in Motion

October 28 | 4:00-6:00 PM

Meditation and yoga are essentially synonyms. It’s common to think of meditation as sitting still, and yoga as a lot of moving, sweating and stretching. But in practice they complement and each other. Approaching our moving yoga practice as a type of meditation can leave us in a profound state serenity.

Join Michael Peterson for a mini-retreat to explore common yoga movements as a foundation for meditation, plus yogic breathing techniques, seated meditation and guided relaxation. We’ll begin with some discussion about what meditation is and what it is not so bring any questions or issues you’ve had with the practice.
