FALL LIQUID RESET RETREAT OVERVIEW

This inspiring retreat will be filled with yoga, meditation, nature, freshly prepared juices, smoothies and warming soups all designed to reset your body for the Fall & Winter seasons to enhance your personal health and wellbeing.
This retreat is located at Nectar Yoga B&B on 20 acres of lush forest, just steps from expansive nature trails. A place where you can breathe deeply, sleep soundly and feel revitalized by the abundance of surrounding nature.

This weekend is a blend of yoga, mediation, delicious organic liquid meals, trail exploration, reading, dreaming and conversations.
Leave behind the usual distractions of life and arrive in a space of nourishment, movement, self-reflection and discovery. Reconnect with your internal happiness.
YOGA & MEDITATION
Wake up to the sounds and smells of Bowen Island’s flora & fauna while practicing your daily guided meditation in our yoga dome. Breathe in the fresh air during your yoga asana and pranayama (yogic breathing) class. Whether you are an experienced yoga practitioner or blossoming into your practice, you will learn to move with awareness, strength and balance. Your two daily yoga asana classes will be catered to your specific body needs and focus on supporting your detoxification. This is a retreat focused on gentle movements the yoga classes are Hatha & Restorative styles.
Fall is the time of the year when nature starts to turn inward. Trees shed their leaves and begin to circulate their inner nectar. Animals look for a cozy home to settle in preparation for the winter. Humans begin to re-discover the great indoors.
Nature offers us both warming and nourishing foods this season. Our retreat will warm you from the inside out. You will served nourishing nut milk drinks, warming broths, and heating root vegetable juices. You will leave with recipes, a daily Ayurvedic lifestyle guide, a healthy warm inner feeling and some insights on how to harness the healing powers of the elements.
Ayurveda is over an over 5000 year old lifestyle science that is still practiced in India today. It has only grown in popularity in the West as people seek to reconnect with their world in this digital age.
As a holistic nutritionist and dedicated nature lover, foodie, and wellness practitioner I am honoured to share this ancient knowledge with you while giving you everyday steps to nourish yourself, your family, and your community this weekend.

My life has been a true reflection of my intention. I know through first-hand experience that you build the life you desire, you are the master and creator of your destiny. Yoga has unfolded this understanding to me, yoga is my way of life, this is the yoga I share with others.
I have had the privilege of studying the yogic path within many lineages and traditions around the globe. My teaching style is an infusion of mindful alignment and intentional breath. I want to share the understanding of space with my students. When we tap into the space that exists, all physical movement is accessible and all mental tension is dissolved.
Yoga has taken me around the globe where I teach Exotic Retreats, Raw Detoxes, Asana, Meditation, Pranayama, Mat Pilates, and own Nectar Yoga B&B on Bowen Island www.nectaryogabnb.ca in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
