From the Seer to the Seen

Patricia Walden Intermediate & Advanced Retreat
August 16-18th, 2024

Join Patricia Walden, one of the senior most Iyengar teachers in the U.S., for a 3-day In-person retreat in historic Harrisville, NH. Embark on an inward journey through Patricia’s artful guidance, where students move beyond the surface layers of their physical forms. They explore the innermost self—the core of their being.

Participants will experience a journey of self-discovery, where the physical practice of asana transforms and transcends—to connect with deeper levels of existence. As practitioners delve within, the distinction between observer (the Seer) and observed (the Seen) dissolves. They become both witness and experience, unifying the tangible and the intangible.

Join us for this transformative retreat—a blend of tradition, wisdom, and inner exploration.

ABOUT PATRICIA Patricia first met BKS Iyengar in 1976 and has been a devoted student and beloved teacher since that time. She aspires to teach in a way where students feel seated in their hearts and fearless.

THE LOCATION – Harrisville’s significance as one of the best-preserved mill building/communities in America was recognized in 1977 with a National Historic Landmark designation. In addition to yoga, participants can enjoy a catered vegetarian meals, followed by a hike on surrounding trails or walk in the scenic village or swim in Harrisville Pond. For the more adventurous, Sunday afternoon could include a hike up scenic Mount Monadnock or other local trails.
