     Thursday evening to Sunday
Holy Cross Monastery 
  on the Hudson River NY

While the Christian tradition is rich in it's theology of embodiment, it has lost some of its own rich heritage of living embodiment and mystery.  Come take refuge while we learn to pray with our bodies using the depth of understanding offered by the ancient tradition of yoga.  We will integrate our bodies and spirits in worship: aligning the body through postures and praying the body through posture sequences to sung prayers.  By releasing our physical restlessness we create a quiet home for the mind to enter meditation, open to the whisper of God's voice.  Yoga will be one of many opportunities to enter the mystery, power, and rhythm of the body: chanting with the monks, Taize chant, mindful eating, and mindful walking  the labyrinth and by the river.

with or without yoga experience, 
are welcome.

Those new to yoga: 
Find out how opening your body can help to deepen your relationship to God. The sequences can be modified to accommodate anyone.  
Those who have practiced yoga for years: Find ways to connect your love of yoga with your Christian spirituality and to slow down to the deepest rhythms of your breath and body.

Please bring something to place on a prayer table in the practice room.  And, if you have them, a sticky mat and a meditation cushion.

Holy Cross Monastery NY nestled on 26 magnificent acres on west bank of the Hudson River, is home to an open-hearted Episcopal Benedictine community.   Here it is easy to enter a time of prayer and reflection, renewal and recreation.
