Prakriti to Purusa: The Art of Penetration 

Join Senior Iyengar Yoga teacher, Patricia Walden for this special retreat experience as she artfully guides us to go deeper into the practices of yoga to build ourselves up.

Nature (prakriti) encompasses a shifting and ever-changing landscape. Underlying this essential truth is the eternal, unchanging element of pure awareness (Purusa). When we hold onto or identify with prakriti, we are pulled in numerous directions that can lead to feeling scattered, uncertain or evoke a state of fear. Yoga provides a pathway to cultivate discrimination (viveka) in order to pierce through the layers of prakriti and see more clearly the aspect of oneself that is eternal.

All of our lives have been altered in some way by the coronavirus pandemic. This virtual gathering is designed to bring you the experience of an at home retreat and connect with the support of community. In this way, we cultivate skills and a mind-state that can nourish and sustain us as we face these uncertain times.
