Zen Yoga by Lisa-Marie Cresswell
Zen is concerned with finding your own truth and expressing that, and on that
journey your body and your experience is your wisest guide.
Zen yoga practice, postures and movements are used to bring the body into focus so that
we can notice any tightnesses or restrictions. The student is then directed to bring their
non-judgemental attention and kindness to these blocked or closed areas, and it's this
simple awareness that causes our body, mind and heart to open.
During this process 3 themes are integrated:
How you are in your physical body affects how you are in your mind.
Energy and consciousness are inextricably linked – when we change our energy, we
change our consciousness and vice versa.

present and liberation in the future; and what is this one thing? It is mindfulness of
By coming face to face with our unhappiness and reactivity we find happiness and
liberation. When we combine physical alignment, energy and awareness we are aligning
body, mind and heart in the moment and this can have powerful effects in our life both on
the mat and out in the wider community.
