On Thursday April 26, Five Rivers Yoga pops up into stillness with a yoga and meditation solo retreat in We Are=Movement‘s ‘Practice Gallery,’ as part of a week-long pop-up event dedicated to how we move.
How it works: Each day the Practice Gallery at 3344 24th Street (Mission & Valencia) will showcase a different Bay Area practitioner. Doors will remain locked, but windows will remain open. Come by and watch for a minute, or watch the entire practice unfold. Five Rivers Yoga is the showcased practitioner on April 26.
What’s the sound of one meditator sitting? Witness the solitude of a personal retreat within the public sangha. My practice day will follow a formal schedule, with meditation and yoga, stillness and movement, and time for rest and creative expression. Stop by to take a look, and participate in this solo retreat through the experience of observation.
