Summer Solstice Yoga & Hike Retreat

Rejuvenate, Invigorate, Celebrate!

Summer Solstice marks the transition to summer and the warmth to come.  It’s also National Indigenous Peoples Day.

This is an invitation to relax, and reconnect with the natural world around you.  We will visit Sainte Marie Among the Hurons for National Indigenous Peoples Day and celebrate with drumming, dancing and learn a slice of the history of Canada.

Try a gentle yoga class and learn how to meditate – no experience or physical ability is required.  If you’re breathing, you can do yoga….if you know you’re thinking, you can meditate!


All are welcome to come and enjoy the peacefulness of Sugar Ridge.

Recharge by relaxing!
Hike in the forest trails, mindful meditation,
gentle yoga, walking meditation out in the medicine wheel garden.

You will leave feeling energized after a few days of relaxing!


The schedule is an offering – nothing is mandatory.  Spend the whole time on the patio if you want:) All meals snacks and beverages will be provided.

This retreat is perfect for you even if you have physical limitations to movement, little or no meditation or yoga experience. Beginners will discover how to sit comfortably and experienced practitioners can deepen their practice. No need to sit on the floor if that’s not comfortable – chairs are always available.

You are welcome to extend your stay for a longer, private getaway.
