Way of Tea + Movement
Join us for an exploration of the elements of Stillness (Yin) and Movements (Yang), through the practice of tea meditation and yoga. In this workshop, we will explore the origin, medicine and wisdom of the plant Camellia Sinensis, a plant teacher that has inspired the taoists and zen buddhists for thousands of years, honoring its meditative and medicinal properties.
Jade will open the space with a tea meditation, to cultivate stillness and inward grounded presence - followed by a interactive session where she will share about the ritual of tea as a daily spiritual practice, from the ancestral ritual to the modern time practice. Together we will flow through the elements of Nature, the connection between tea and meditation, while getting the chance to taste different types of tea.
Stillness will flow into movement exploration with Isabelle, leading us into a gentle yoga sequence. Moving from grounding to fluency and back, we will be working with different techniques inspired from Katonah Yoga© and other traditions, using props as a way of scaffolding the body. Recalibrate and soothe your whole nervous system.
