Open Mind Zen Naples Offers Meditation and Yoga

Oct 30, 2015 08:49AM

Open Mind Zen Naples, co-founded by longtime leaders in the area’s Buddhist community Andy Solis and Laurie Lyons, is now open in the space that was formerly Bija Yoga at 1250 Tamiami Trail North, Suite 205, in Naples. To celebrate the launch of this nonprofit meditation center practicing in the Soto Zen tradition, an all-day meditation will be conducted from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., November 21, with an optional all-levels yoga class.

In addition to offering donation-based silent and guided meditation and yoga classes as part of a unique dharma center where people from all backgrounds and all levels of experience can come to practice meditation and yoga together, Open Mind Zen Naples will also offer a monthly full-day retreat called Zazenkai. Membership for meditation will also be available and formal students looking for traditional Zen training are welcome.

“Our intention is to offer a balanced approach to mind-body practice,” says Lyons. This practice includes providing students with direct regular access to a meditation teacher.  

Costs: $65 all-day meditation, $15 suggested donation for all yoga classes, $10 meditation. For more information, call 239-961-2491 or 239-595-9502, email [email protected] or visit
