Gentle Yoga & Ski (or Hike): A Getaway to Relax and Explore

Monday, March 13 – Thursday, March 16, 2023

Reconnect with yourself during this weekend retreat!

This retreat has a focus on fun, relaxation and an opportunity to explore mindfulness practices aimed at permanent 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.

Sugar Ridge Yoga & Ski Retreat

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. 

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
  • Create resilient emotional balance with mindfulness-based meditation. 
  • Have fun celebrating the snow with cross-country skiing or snowshoeing through the forest.  This will depend on the amount of snow on the ground and whether the Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre is open for rentals
  • Meet new friends and become your own best friend!

Sugar Ridge yoga group retreat

Throughout the retreat you are invited to explore various forms of mindfulness meditations including sitting, walking and eating, as well as mindful movement through yoga and skiing.

No experience with yoga, meditation, or skiing 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. 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, as well as guidance on modified poses.

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.
