Your movement and meditation practices, and ultimately, your body and mind, are different doorways to mindfulness and insight that complement each other in a nourishing way. This silent retreat will blend the traditions of yoga and Insight Meditation (Vipassana) into an integrated flow of meditation in movement and stillness, helping you to relax, open and embody wisdom in a sustained way.

Over the course of the retreat, you’ll receive meditation instructions for sitting and walking practice, dharma teachings, and mindful movement practices suitable to all levels of experience and physical ability.

This retreat is taught in French.
