The Body is My Temple –
Intermediate & Advanced Retreat
August 18-20th, 2023
Join Patricia Walden, one of the senior most teachers in the U.S., for a 3-day In-person retreat in historic Harrisville, NH. Patricia’s teaching artfully guides students on an inward journey exploring asana and pranayama to integrate and unify the body and mind. In this way, each practitioner develops a sense of the body as a vehicle to connect with deeper levels of their being and uncover an inner spark of divinity in each of us. This unique and intimate retreat gives students an opportunity to delve deeper in a bucolic New England setting.
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.
