Replenishing Your Inner Reservoir: Prajna Yoga and Zen at Tassajara
August 16-20, 2015
Tassajara Zen Mountain Center
Carmel, CA 

The curative power of deep relaxation and the clear presence cultivated through yoga, meditation, and nature offer a potent resource for healing.

The word Prajna suggests an embodied wisdom that permeates every cell and tissue in the body. Prajna Yoga employs detailed guidance in postures, breath work, and ayurveda to bring a depth of understanding, and appreciation for, the inner workings of the body. Zen meditation brings us home to the true reality of mind and heart.

A retreat is a time to return home to your body, clear space of mind, and open heart. While life’s busyness can dull or exhaust you, this retreat will refill your deep inner well, and in height of summer, offers inner hydration. Deep yoga practice will balance vigor with rejuvenation. The postures, ayurvedic wisdom, and breath work will give insight into every system of the body including the bones, organs, and hormones, bringing greater awareness and subsequent health. Tassajara offers the perfect container for this inner journey with incredible food, healing baths, and unparalleled natural beauty.
