Yoga and Aikido Meet    Saturday (a.m. + p.m.)  Sunday (a.m.) 18 – 19 August

Domenico Zucco Shihan (7th Dan Aikikai d’Italia) and Shirley bring Yoga and Aikido together in the weekend of 18, 19 August.  We will explore together just sitting, vayu, pranayama, asana, aiki taizo (movement), aiki ken (sword), overtone (singing) and semi-e (Japanese brush).  Find out where they meet in practice of body, breath and mind.  No Aikido experience necessary.

for information:


Yoga practice is a retreat.  When we stand on our mats, we retreat from our everyday life in order to explore other aspects of our world.  We put some things aside so that we can allow ourselves to focus more clearly.  Then we take that knowledge back to everyday life.

To go on retreat for a longer period of time, i.e. a long weekend, a week, or a month, gives the opportunity to deepen that practice.  We relieve ourselves from many responsibilities like work, shopping, cooking, cleaning up and social activities.  We can relax into a rhythm of practice, sustenance and rest.  Nature supports this process.
