Zen Yoga Workshop with Ian Blackie-Taylor at The Yoga Studio, Tavistock
Ian trained as a Zen Yoga teacher. This workshop is an opportunity to learn about and experience some of the teachings of Zen Yoga.
Zen emphasises self-control, meditation practice, insight into Buddha-nature, and the personal expression of this insight in daily life, especially for the benefit of others. In Zen, the inseparability of the ‘body-mind’ is often stressed, together with the need to retain our flexibility for life. Zen yoga practice is primarily concerned with the body and sensations, and observing life as a process in a constant state of change.
You will learn the importance of mixing moving Zen (do-zen) into Zen practice. There are four kinds of Zen: sitting, standing, lying, and moving. We should practise them all. Whatever we do, we must do it fully, mindfully, wholeheartedly, one thing at a time without being attached to or involved in it. When we practise moving Zen, the quality of our daily lives becomes very different.
No previous experience of yoga necessary. Suitable for all.
