Submerge yourself in a cleansing, rejuvenating weekend of Iyengar Yoga and natural Hot Springs at the Bodhi Manda Zen Center, a humble, peaceful residential retreat site in Jemez Springs, New Mexico. Simple, comfortable lodgings, delicious farm-to-table vegetarian meals, daily seva and plenty of time to soak (and cold plunge in the nearby river!) provide the perfect compliment to expanding your spiritual horizons though Yoga Sadhana. 

Deepen your practice and reclaim your joy through asana, pranayama, meditation, and sutra study. Relax, unplug, reset, and reconnect with the earth and your own inner source.  All levels welcome.
