Zen and Yoga: Complementary Paths

  • Endless Shore Yoga 2570 King George Boulevard Surrey, BC, V4P 1H5 Canada (map)

Zen and yoga are traditions which share ancient roots. In both practices we bring awareness to our moment-to-moment experience of breath, body and mind. Please join us in exploring how these two traditions complement and support each other. The retreat will include periods of yoga, silent sitting and walking meditation, as well as dharma talks on Zen with Q&A.

All levels of experience  welcome.

Please bring a bag lunch. Herbal tea will be available.
