Yoga Retreat

Only a calm and quiet mind will allow us to connect to the power of intuition. Through yoga, we learn to slow the thoughts and calm the mind, and to find this intuitive wisdom in the ‘minds eye’. Sometimes you will hear this referred to as the ‘6th sense’. When intuition unites with the goodness in our hearts, we can find amazing clarity!

Is it time to make some stillness and inner peace a priority? For a moment now, consider numerology and the power of 7 (which is all about wisdom and intuition)! Within 7 weeks we will be enjoying our retreat in Bowen Island and in 7 months our retreat in Loon Lake, Maple Ridge. During our retreats we move through 7 intentional practices:

  1. Root: Ground into the physical surroundings.
  2. Sacral: Get moving with any emotions.
  3. Solar Plexus: Tap into the core center.
  4. Heart: Listen carefully to the heart.
  5. Throat: Affirm relevant truths.
  6. Minds Eye: Find clarity and peace with a heart/mind connection
  7. Crown: Celebrate a sense of renewal and can carry it forward!

“Om mani padme hum” or poetically speaking “may the jewel of consciousness unite with the hearts lotus”. I hope you join us! You will be so glad you did.

Namaste 🙏🏼


I humbly acknowledge that I live, learn, work and play on the unceded and traditional territory of the Coast Salish peoples.

Body Harmony Yoga Retreats

“Nurture in Nature Yoga Retreat” Apr. 22-24/24 at Bowen Island, BC

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.
