HATHA (postures) YOGA

Traditional Hatha Yoga is a holistic Yogic path, including disciplines, postures (asana), purification procedures (shatkriya), gestures (mudra), breathing (pranayama), and meditation. The Hatha Yoga predominantly practiced in the West consists of mostly asanas understood as physical exercises. It is also recognized as a stress-reducing practice that attempts to balance body and mind. Asanas teach poise, balance and strength, and are practiced to improve the body’s physical health and clear the mind in preparation for meditation. Download the flyer.

Mindfulness Practice in the Tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh

6:30 to 8:00 PM in the Meditation Pavilion
Donations Appreciated

The River Oak Sangha welcomes everyone with an interest in mindfulness practice, including first-time visitors and guests. A sangha is a community that supports people in the practice of meditation, ethical living and the development of wisdom. We aspire to apply mindfulness to everyday life while balancing practice and study. Such a path can decrease suffering, increase happiness and ultimately lead to the natural development of compassion and wisdom. There is no dogma to believe in. Instead, practicing mindfulness with a sangha is an opportunity to explore our own life experiences using the tools of meditation and reflection in the context of a supportive community of fellow practitioners. Our sangha includes Buddhists and non-Buddhists. All who wish to experience the benefits of meditation and mindfulness are welcome to practice with us. It is not necessary to be a Buddhist to benefit from mindfulness practices. Download the flyer.
