yoga and meditation
Pasadini has been a practicing Buddhist/meditator since Y2K. She enjoys the simplicity, intimacy and honesty that meditation is/requires of her, and feels deeply honoured to be able to introduce others to meditation, and Buddhist practice. She lived at Dhanakosa for two years, and now stays in Glasgow full time with her wife and dog, and leads retreats at Dhanakosa several times a year.
Originally hailing from Eastern Canadian shores, but having spent her whole adult life in the US, until 2012, she will forgive you if you think she sounds American. Its like totally totally awesome dude.
Jo has been practicing yoga all her adult life and teaching for 20 years. Initially practising in the Iyengar tradition, she has subsequently been influenced by the teachings of Erich Shiffmann, Donna Holleman and Paul Grilley. She emphasises a slower mindful approach to help cultivate a sense of receptivity and well being and aims to integrate the practice of yoga with the teachings of the Buddha.
Open to all, these retreats are suitable for both beginners and those with more experience, but no previous experience is assumed. All these retreats include introductory meditation teaching and periods of silence.
These retreats combine introductory meditation teaching with yoga. The supportive atmosphere of the retreat allows us to develop and deepen both practices, and understand how the two augment each other. Both meditation and yoga teaching will be from first principles and will be suitable for complete beginners.
