Bridging Yoga & Meditation with Michael Stone

Join Shôken Michael Stone for a one-day workshop of practice and discussion, to gain a better understanding of the aspects of, and connections between yoga postures and meditation practice. Shôken Michael Stone translates Buddhist and Yoga practices into tools that transform habits, cultivate more intimate relationships, and promote a deeper compassion for our world. He maintains a dedicated retreat and speaking schedule, internationally.

Morning Program
Michael will guide us through yoga postures, paying attention to breathing and alignment, so we can drop deeper into familiar postures and learn tips to make new poses come alive. The morning will end with guided meditation on the breath.

Afternoon Program
Learn the basics of meditation practice, how to work with distracting thoughts, and how to develop a daily practice that reduces stress and rumination. There will be time for meditation, discussion, and study.
