Winter Wellness Yoga and Meditation

Reset & reconnect with yourself during this winter weekend retreat!

This weekend has a focus on fun, relaxation and an opportunity to explore mindfulness practices aimed at stress reduction. Enjoy this time just for you!  Let go of stress as you feel more centered and able to deal with whatever life presents.

Just being immersed in the Sugar Ridge environment is a naturally peaceful experience; in winter, it’s magical. You can often hear the snowflakes fluttering to the earth in the stillness here! This weekend is your time to relax, unwind, and reconnect body, mind and spirit as you become mindful of all that surrounds you and is within you. Listen to the birds, the breeze. Feel your heartbeat, the rise and fall of your breath.


Better Cope With Stress and fully experience life in the present

This retreat will provide you with tools to better cope with the stresses of daily life and fully experience life in the present, rather than getting caught up in worries about the future.  Explore all aspects of yourself: what you eat, how you eat, how you feed your mind, and how you feel in your body.

– Cleanse and nourish your body with yummy organic vegan meals, while you nourish your soul.

– Come into physical balance with different styles of Yoga classes to flex your muscles, and still your mind and spirit

– Have fun celebrating the snow with hiking or snowshoeing through the forest.

– Meet new friends and become your own best friend!


No experience with yoga, meditation is necessary!

This retreat is perfect if you’re curious but not sure how to start or what to expect. This retreat is a perfect choice for you even if you have physical limitations to movement, little or no meditation or yoga experience.

Everything during your retreat is completely optional. This is YOUR time. If you need to sleep in then skip the early morning yoga session. If a massage is the nurturing you need, we can book that for you. Allow this time to be the kindest gift you could ever give yourself and honour your needs.
