Cultivating a Yogic Mind –  with Patricia Walden

August 16-20, 2017

Shaker Museum, Enfield, NH

How can we find peace and equanimity during troubled times? How do we empower ourselves and become a positive force in the world? How can our practice teach us to discriminate?

A retreat is an ideal time to slow down and have more time for reflection. At the same time, there is power in community. The Shaker 2017 retreat with Patricia Walden will be an opportunity to reach deeper into our asana, pranayama and meditation practice. We will contemplate and discuss readings from both the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras (bring at least one commentary of each text). This workshop is for seasoned practitioners with the following requirements:

  • Have a regular asana and pranayama practice
  • Be able to hold sirsasana for 5 minutes
  • Be able to hold salamba sarvangasana for 10 minutes
  • Be able to press up independently in Urdhva Dhanurasana
  • Be able to work with your own injuries
