Experience the practice of Zen Buddhist Yoga

Read the course outline [PDF]

From its inception 2500 years ago, Buddhist practice and development emphasised bodily as well as cognitive development. The Buddha himself taught mindfulness of the body and its sensations as direct routes to human flourishing. Zen yoga practice has evolved from this basis to emphasise awareness in stillness and in activity with particular attention to posture and alignment and the cultivation of human vitality.

This one-day practical and experiential course is led by Daizan Skinner, who shares his yoga practices from two decades of Zen temple life. We also draw inspiration from the Buddhist texts and artworks in our exhibition, Buddhism.

No previous experience of yoga is necessary.
