Group Retreats

A lot of people think that Sugar Ridge is all about yoga and meditation. Although we are passionate about both activities our motto is “As long as it’s legal we don’t really care what you do”. We’ve hosted African Youth initiation groups, non-profit retreats, corporate team-building retreats, fundraisers for charities, spiritual groups and plenty of yoga and meditation retreats. We will cater to the needs of your group regardless of what you’re doing while you’re here. We observe silence if you do and we’re happy to dance with you too!

We are located only 90 minutes north of Toronto, close to Midland, Ontario. Your retreat participants will have an opportunity to reconnect with nature and its beauty at Sugar Ridge. The 150 acres of lush meadows, majestic forests and rolling hills is an ideal setting for any retreat. You will enjoy stunning views of the Wye Marsh and Georgian Bay at any time of year while hiking the trails of the property.

Our fully accessible retreat centre was designed to accommodate the needs of participants and facilitators. Our accommodations in comfy cabins in the woods offer a retreat on their own. Two cabins are fully accessible. The beds are comfortable, the duvets are snuggly and each one has it’s own unique view of the forest. The studio is comfortable for 25 – 30 people for yoga or 50 for sitting meditation or workshop/meeting. This centre has a grand hall, a dining hall, lounge with double sided fireplace and a large commercial kitchen, serving up yummy, organic vegetarian meals.  

We would be pleased to answer any questions you may have or to provide a quote for your group. Just call Liz for any additional information or just to say hi and get a sense of what we’re all about.

We look forward to hosting your retreat.

Caroline Owen and I delivered our trauma-informed yoga training at Sugar Ridge in October 2015, and we were very impressed at the level of professionalism and customer service, the quality of the facilities, and excellent meals delivered on behalf of Liz and her team. From the time we booked the facility, through the student registration process, to the very end of our workshop, we were provided with ample support, guidance and warm hospitality, making the whole venture very straightforward and easeful. The organic, cozy feel of the buildings, beautiful natural setting, and resident dogs really contributed to the welcoming atmosphere. Sugar Ridge felt like “home” for those 4 days, and I look forward to the possibility of delivering further workshops at this wonderfully peaceful, all-inclusive getaway venue.
