Yoga Training
with Zen Master Daizan Skinner

18 April - 2 May (starts Wednesday evening 6pm)

Zen Yoga emphasises physical alignment, the flow of energy in the system and the application of mindfulness or non-judgemental attention to the body. Zen Master Hakuin taught that Buddhas are like water and ordinary people are like ice. Mindful attention is like the sunlight melting away the frozen places in the body. As things open up on the physical level, many other levels open up as well.
