Yoga and Meditation for Busy People: Cultivating Ease in a Frantic World

For all levels.

It’s common to feel that you are too old, too tight, too busy, too anxious, too stressed—too anything—to find time for a regular yoga or meditation practice. But guess what? Yoga and meditation could actually be just what you need to cultivate ease in a frantic world. Join Beryl Bender Birch, a renowned yoga and meditation teacher for 45 years, to spend five powerful days focusing on your health and happiness.

Beryl invites you to take a break from your busy life and soften into the quiet beauty of the Berkshires in winter. You begin every morning with deep breathing exercises, guided meditation, and a simple yoga practice, learning ways to carry these calming routines when you’re back out in the world.

Return home ready to be present with your life, grateful for all you have, and armed with yogic tools to soothe anxious thoughts and tame busy, overwhelming schedules.
