Upcoming Retreats:

An Anusara Yoga and Meditation Retreat
Summer Retreat August 22-26, 2024

With Rudrani and Jacalyn

Dai Bosatsu Zendo

With much excitement, Rudrani and Jacalyn invite you to join us for another wonderful summer retreat at Dai Bosatsu Zendo, a pristine mountain sanctuary in the Catskill Mountains.
The Zendo has hosted our deep and fulfilling retreats for seventeen seasons. As the WYC community gathers to practice Anusara yoga, meditation and inner reflection, we will be surrounded by the magnificent, unspoiled beauty of nature.
Our retreat group will stay at the Zendo and in the newly renovated guest house that sits overlooking the sparkling spring-fed Beecher Lake. The guest house has a new, spacious sun-deck and refurbished rooms that are both comfortable and homey!

The Zendo located 2.5 hours from NYC, is a traditionally built Zen monastery with residential monks in full time practice.
We return to this sacred sanctuary knowing the profound depths of practices we have experienced here in past retreats. The Zendo’s sacred grounds reveal an awe inspiring splendor of this unique refuge.

The theme of the retreat, Returning Home to the Heart of the Great Self  is a seed to plant inside. In the inward turning  we co-create together, we will naturally inquire inside making space to contemplate un-discovered layers of our being.

Our four-day retreat starts Thursday afternoon, August 22 through Monday 2:00pm August 26

Retreat Program includes:

  • Daily Morning meditation. Enjoy learning the deep foundations of an authentic meditation practice.We will open to transformational levels as the group evolves throughout the retreat with gentle and cumulative guidance.
  • Two Asana Classes daily.
    – Morning Asana class: We offer two morning Anusara yoga classes that include Asana, Pranayama, Deep Relaxation and Meditation. Level 1 will give support to beginners on alignment fundamentals of Anusara Yoga and Open Level will support you to deepen and advance your current practice.
    – Afternoon Restorative Yoga and Therapeutics class is offered for the entire retreat group together. It includes Pranayama, Restorative asana  sequences, Therapeutics & Self-massage techniques, Deep Relaxation and Meditation.
  • Evening Satsang. Includes retreat group sharing, Q&A and exploration of our inner  experiences. These will be woven together with the wisdom teachings of the Yoga tradition
