The Practice of Yoga, the Iyengar Way
With Amy Hamilton
June 3 - 5, 2022
“Asana is meditation in action”
RETREAT BY INVITED PRESENTER
The beauty of yoga practice is that we learn to be more accepting of where and who we really are in each moment. With this knowledge we can engage the world around us with compassion and kindness. Join this weekend retreat to gain greater awareness of body, breath, and how to retain focus. Now is the time to refresh and renew your practice.
“I learned more about the depth of poses practicing yoga over the weekend than I imagined possible.”

This Iyengar yoga weekend retreat will guide you to the joy of yoga. BKS Iyengar states, “Asana is meditation in action.” While a consistent asana practice aligns and balances our bodies, a consistent pranayama practice attends to and refines our breath. In this way we learn to focus and bring our minds to a more steady and stable state. Throughout the course of this weekend, you will participate in asana and pranayama classes and will be led in guided meditation. There will also be group discussion to deepen understanding and help embed the lessons of our time together.
