New – Immersion Retreats with Swan

for practitioners of yoga & meditation



Join Swan for a series of weekend immersion retreats at The Path Yoga Centre

An “absorbing involvement” is one way the dictionary defines immersion. We have heard your many requests for an immersive experience to take your practice deeper. Swan loves to teach in this format and is very excited to bring a series of three, 3-day long intensives.

As the work deepens, no longer can the 90-minute container hold the subtle inquiry beyond and within the asana. Given the opportunity to relax into a place of bonded group process, naturally arising dharma content can be the entry point for a new conversation of body-mind. This in turn leads us to deeper possibilities of integration.

“The arc of our disappearance” (David Whyte) refers to some of life’s great cyclical questions of existence. Immersion will give participants space for these difficult questions to exist and each individual’s place in that sacred journey will be explored.

Teacher and student are not separate but immersed as one in an environment of inquiry. Together we are held as a gravitational force that revolves around the need to deepen our questions and to live our practice in a space of clarity and sanctuary.

Meditation, breath-work, asana and writing practices will all facilitate the conversation of our lives.

Principles of Active Practice




info@thepathyoga.com | 604.562.1944

Understanding tensegrity helps us to become like the willow in a storm. Supple and strong, we learn to use the forces not fight forces that move through us. We will learn to balance the natural forces of compression and tension within the body and to find harmony between appropriate tone and relaxation in your posture.

This workshop will support you in understanding how to hold joints in neutral space and leave you with an expanded view of how your core can support your practice.

Spring 2014 – TBA
Time: 2-6pm
