In this 2.5 hour session, participants practice several distinct yet interrelated formal mindfulness practices — mindful hatha yoga (ending with a brief body scan), sitting meditation and optional walking meditation — for a minimum of 90 minutes. This extended formal practice period is followed by inquiry into and exploration of participants’ experiences with in-class and assigned home practices. Typical topics include challenges and insights encountered in formal practice and in integrating mindfulness into everyday life.
