Many people have popularized Asana (postures) as yoga. However, yoga is about stillness “of the mind.” In this retreat the aim is to experience what it would be like to live in an ashram, or monastery. We will practice physical yoga and pranayama, learn how to align in
postures, experience reading the yoga sutras and meditate to the sound of Tibetan bowls. There will be a vegetarian potluck at mid-day.

She began teaching yoga/Tai Chi/Qigong at the University of the Incarnate Word in 2006. She also coordinates the outreach program for Connections at the Village at Incarnate Word, where she teaches seven classes a week.
