This retreat weekend is handcrafted to combine yoga, Ayurvedic wellness and incredible food in an off-the-beaten path destination amidst natural Canadian beauty. Our weekend retreat theme is “Remedy of Ritual” — think cabin glamping in the forest, slow flow yoga overlooking the space where the ocean meets the shore, and evening yin yoga combined with creating rituals and remedies that nourish us, inside and out.
Just a ferry ride away from Vancouver lies this Galiano, the sunniest and wildest of BC’s Southern Gulf Islands, and Bodega Ridge, our home for the weekend, makes the most of its natural charms. Leah Adams will be guiding you through a full but relaxing weekend of thoughtful slow yoga flows, morning meditations, yin yoga, make it yourself workshop of dosha balancing teas and skin elixirs and more.
Meals will be prepared by chef Josh Blumenthal; he has spent time working in Vancouver’s most celebrated restaurants, as well as working in Michelin-starred kitchens in Europe.We will sip warm tea by the fire and explore how we can use the map of the Ayurvedic doshas to tune into the wisdom of the body. Beginning to recognize the qualities of the doshas can support us in creating vibrant health and creating nourishing rituals to support our own unique needs.
There will be abundant time for napping, hiking, and personal reflection. You can also choose to embark on fishing charters, kayaking, mountain biking (we have high end Kona bikes on premises), guided hikes and more. We can make recommendations or handle arrangements. This trip is open to people of all experiences and backgrounds.
