RELAXATION YOGA

This yoga class is designed for all levels, incorporating breathing, stretching, fluid movements, and stillness.  The postures and techniques help to stabilize and calm the nervous system and tone the organs, bringing more ease and circulation throughout the body. You can expect to feel more relaxed and aware from this yoga practice.

 

MANTRA MEDITATION (KIRTAN)

Enjoy the vocal and physical bliss of chanting and singing sacred mantras in community.  Kirtan is the congregational singing of holy names. It is usually in a call-and-response format and a great way to train the mind, body, and speech

 

YIN YOGA

This class incorporates resting postures on the ground that utilize multiple props for added support. Allow yourself to rest and experience the art of relaxation.  Both teachers will offer support and hands-on assistance to help you fall into a state of peace.

 

SUNSET WALK & MEDITATION

Take a breath of fresh air and enjoy silent meditation and reflection outdoor in nature. Wander about and wonder about the beauty of the earth, wind, sky, trees, and animals.

 

SOUND HEALING

Enjoy and relax to the sounds of harmonizing bowls and serene musical instruments.  Allow the mind and body to soften, as your spirit travels to restful and ethereal realms.  Participants will lay down for most of the practice, and/or be guided through restorative postures with supportive props.

 

 

YOGA & MEDITATION

Learn to use yoga as a means to quiet the mind and come into stillness. This final class will bring all of your learning together and bring it home with you.

San Francisco International and Oakland International airports are approximately three hours south of Ratna Ling by car. Alaska Airlines flies to and from Sonoma County Airport in Santa Rosa which is approximately 1.5 hours from Ratna Ling by car. Unfortunately, there are no shuttles that bring you directly to Ratna Ling, so it is best to rent a car or email us to support in coordinating a carpool with fellow retreatants.
