Somatic Meditation – One with Your Body

  • A half-day workshop exploring meditation exercises from Tibetan yoga
  • Josh Gale
  • Workshop, Yoga

Somatic meditation is about working with the body as the ground of meditation practice. Rather than a top-down, mental orientation towards meditation, somatic meditation is a bottom-up approach, in which the body is key. With a combination of somatic meditation and yoga, we can open our awareness and experience the wisdom and intelligence of the body. The body and mind unify, give us a clarity and joy.

During this half-day workshop we will explore meditation exercises from Tibetan yoga while lying, sitting and moving.
