The basis of Patrick's Bali weekend intensive is to elaborate on full integration of body dynamics, meditation, pranayama, and self-inquiry.

Also integrating a more restorative yin style approach to induce a better understanding of how the practice can affect the meridian system and specific organs to enhance physical balance, inside out.
