Shamatha Yoga and Meditation

Shamatha means "peaceful abiding". Shamatha meditation is the practice of resting in the natural state of the mind. Shamatha yoga is a gentle yoga series used to prepare the mind and body for meditation. Through the practice of yoga and meditation, we increase awareness of, and stabilize and strengthen the mind and body.

Open Mat

We provide two hours of open mat time per week. Students may use this time to practice whatever they feel they most need to focus on. No formal instruction is provided during this time.
