Gentle Yoga & Meditation Weekend Retreat

Friday, May 24 – Sunday, May 26, 2019

This weekend is designed to care for your body, mind and spirit. Join in nurturing gentle yoga classes, meditation sessions, hiking in a beautiful Ontario forest and more. Enjoy delicious home cooked vegetarian meals, freshly prepared using primarily organic and local foods. Walk in the woods, relax by the fireplace, share experiences, develop new friendships and come away refreshed and inspired.

This retreat will be led by Gabriel and co-led by Aida.  It will incorporate therapeutic elements of yoga as explored through the lenses of the koshas (layers of being) – physical, energetic, emotional, mental and the spirit layer.

 

Location

The Sugar Ridge Retreat Centre was created to provide a place for people to reconnect with a part of themselves that may be neglected or hidden, to connect with others or just getaway and have some fun! Whether you seek a much needed R&R break, a getaway from kids and family, romance, or a deeper spiritual connection, we will cater to your needs to make your visit a memorable experience.

Gabriel McCullogh

Gabriel is a certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher with a degree in Kinesiology & Physical Education and Mathematics. He has taught all levels of yoga classes at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario for five years.  He is currently completing a Masters Programme in Counselling Psychology.   

Gabriel has now joined Sunlilyoga both as a yoga teacher and programme assistant in Sunlilyoga’s 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training. He recently co-led a yoga, meditation and hiking retreat with Aida in the Azores and will be doing so again in October 2019.

His unique insights, gentle strength and caring heart are evident in everything he does. It’s a real honour to have him be part of Sunlilyoga.  

 

 

 Aida Neves

Teaching and facilitating in the Toronto and York Region areas of Ontario since 1979, Aida brings to her yoga classes a wealth of experience and training, all focused on assisting others in the achievement of health: personal, environmental and global.

Aida Neves follows the Kripalu tradition of yoga, with years of intensive study that enables her to be a yoga teacher with a difference. Her skill as a yoga therapist, educator of yoga teachers, school teacher, outdoor educator, background in martial arts and long-standing yoga lifestyle, sets yogini Aida’s classes apart from those in other yoga studios.

Kripalu’s gentle tradition based on caring, non-judgmental self acceptance, allows the practitioner to ultimately be guided by his or her own inner knowing, both on and off the yoga mat. Aida weaves her experiences with the compassionate approach of Kripalu Yoga into every class, retreat and workshop. Practicing and studying yoga since 1979, Aida founded Sunlilyoga in 1997. 

A teacher of yoga teachers and beginning students, she guides her students to be truly alive, from moment to moment, and to see the world around them with appreciation and wonder.
