In this retreat, we will practise yoga asanas and Zen meditation to show how the parallel paths of the Eight limbs of yoga and the Eight-fold path of Buddhism lead to the same end-purpose - to know ourselves and to help others. There will be sitting and walking meditation as well as an introduction to Zen chanting, together with sessions of active and restorative yoga to help us deepen our practices.
