Time for silence Yoga Retreat with Ben

Socrates says: "The sun is in everyone, you just have to make it shine". How can we make this sun shine? A Korean Zen master would say: "I don't know". Not knowing was his method. We also want to try not to know during our yoga days. We want to empty our minds instead of filling them with new thoughts. One method of cultivating our not-knowing is yoga, another method is Zen meditation.

Yoga with Ben is a mixture of Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Yin Yoga, and Qi Gong. Flexibility is worked on by stretching and stabilising the body, with calmness and lightness.

During zazen, the conscious silence of Zen meditation is realised and we concentrate on a simple, traditional method for clearing the mind.
