“NURTURE IN NATURE YOGA RETREAT” on Bowen Island Apr 22-24th, 2024
Our individual and unique nature is intertwined with everything living, however so many things we do shift us out of balance. When we are mindful in nature, it naturally restores the harmony and rhythm within ourselves, nurturing a more joyful experience of life. For our special time together, we will let our true nature find its flow through meditation, movement and breathing yoga practices in the nurturing serenity of our surroundings. On Bowen Island, settled in the heart of the 20 acres of forested property that is Nectar Yoga, we will gather in community to rebalance our material bodies while honoring our hearts, minds and spirits. It is our hope this retreat will encourage the creation of new rituals and healthy habits to help keep you in balance, so you may live life to the fullest.
This nurturing retreat will take place at Nectar Yoga, a beautiful sanctuary 20 mins off the coast a short distance from on the ancestral and unceded territory of Nexwlélexwm (Bowen Island, BC). Our practices will take place in a beautiful geodesic dome that is nestled in the Alders near a babbling creek fed by the fresh water spring that rises from the earth. They will also be held outdoors intertwined with nature and in the beautiful Onyx lodge.
