Late afternoon yoga will be followed by supper on Saturday evening. We’ll partake of a leisurely brunch after our Sunday morning practice, have a bit more free time and conclude our weekend with a closing ceremony. *All classes and activities are optional.
Certified yoga instructor, international retreat leader, Thai yoga massage therapist and Chrysalis Yoga Retreats founder, Kim Wolff, will facilitate daily classes, providing gentle guidance and focused support while allowing space for each student to find their own connection to the practice. Soulful and playful by nature, Kim’s class sessions are based on Hatha yoga philosophy, postures, breathwork and the principles of Ayurveda. Guided meditation offers students an opportunity to experience a range of techniques emphasizing simple methods that can be integrated into daily life. Organic aromatherapy is used as a therapeutic tool to assist with balancing mind and mood. Stream of consciousness writing exercises along with journaling prompts assist students in gaining insight into and increasing awareness of their innermost Self.
Nourishment for the weekend will be provided by Vanessa Vorbach, an inspirational Holistic Nutritionist and classically trained Chef based out of Vancouver, British Columbia. Though she’s logged some serious time cooking in Michelin starred restaurants throughout Europe, these days Vanessa’s heart and soul goes into offering her clients vibrant, prana-packed, plant-based cuisine that’s expertly and lovingly prepared with seasonal, organic and local ingredients and presented with beautiful creative flair that elevates vegan cuisine to an artform. An entirely vegan / gluten free menu will be served with a mix of both raw and cooked dishes. All meals will be served in abundant portions and are certain to satisfy both belly and soul.
