Rasika Link

Movement Teacher

Rasika has been practicing and teaching hatha yoga since 1984. She has been influenced by many teachers in both the Iyengar and Kripalu traditions. In 1999 she began vipassana practices at Spirit Rock, and her yoga classes gradually shifted to a more concentrated, mindful style of teaching. She invites curiosity to awaken in the asanas (postures) as she gently reminds you to soften around your rough edges. Her classes are like a breath of fresh air on a crisp morning in the mountains. She is living in Portland, Oregon, and having fun with her two young grandchildren.

Retreat On-Land

August 18 - August 27, 2024 Sunday - Tuesday | 9 nights

Summer Lovingkindness Retreat

The Buddha’s teachings on the four divine sanctuaries include meditations on universal friendliness, compassion, altruistic joy, and equanimity. Focusing on purification and concentration, these divine sanctuaries aid our ability to find inner peace and powerfully engage with the world. This retreat deepens our understanding of selfless love and how it ends suffering. Experienced retreatants are encouraged to combine this retreat with the previous Elements retreat to further develop concentration, purify the heart, and learn to integrate these two forms of meditation.
