Nectar Yoga B&B on Bowen Island
LIQUID DETOX WEEKEND OVERVIEW
Join Andrea Clark, yoga instructor & owner of Nectar Yoga B&B for a weekend on beautiful Bowen Island. This inspiring weekend will be filled with yoga, meditation, nature, freshly prepared juices, smoothies and warming soups all designed to detox your body and enhance your personal health and wellbeing.
This retreat is located at Nectar Yoga B&B on 1.2 acres of lush forest, just steps from the ocean. A place where you can breathe deeply, sleep soundly and feel revitalized by the abundance of surrounding nature.
A weekend with Andrea will offer you a chance to reboot, detox your body and mind, and will introduce you to new techniques, information and skills that will create positive change in your life. This weekend is a blend of yoga, mediation, delicious organic food, trail exploration, reading, dreaming and conversations by the campfire.
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.
Reconnect to your health through food and learn to embrace your own inner healer. Informative talks followed by guided discussions will be held daily. You will go home with tasty usable advice to grow healthy habits in your own home and community.
Detox, cleanse and eat your way to more vibrant health. The liquid based menu during your 3 day cleanse is designed to help flush out your systems for brighter skin, more energy, removal of waste and possibly some weight. The juices, smoothies and soups are made from all organic, fresh foods. We will begin the detox weekend with a light transition meal that will focus on healthy veggies and warming broths. This initial meal will ease you into the weekend cleanse.

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.
We will have guest Nutritionists and Holistic Chefs for each retreat. Details to come.

“RISING STRONG” IN YOUR OWN LIFE
Dive deep into the practice of wholehearted living by learning to apply the work of Dr. Brené Brown in your own life.

In addition to breath work, mindfulness practice and traditional hatha and yin yoga poses, unexpected moments of fun await you in your daily practices!
NOURISHING VEGETARIAN MEALS
Nourishing the soul also includes nourishing the body! Your weekend includes five delicious vegetarian meals enjoyed in community with one another. We are happy to accommodate special dietary needs or preferences upon request.
We will enjoy dinner on Saturday evening at one of the restaurants in Snug Cove, for a chance to enjoy more of what the island has to offer.
Bowen Island is a short ferry ride from the mainland, but arrival on the island instantly makes you feel as if you’ve hit the pause button on life. Nestled among beautiful trees and a short walk from the ocean, Nectar Yoga B&B offers a beautiful setting in which to rest, grow, and restore. Unwind in the Finnish sauna, walk on nearby trails, or allow the sound of ocean waves to rejuvenate you. Accommodation is shared (2 guests per sleeping area).

WE ARE ONE YEAR OLD TODAY!
I’m gushing with joy and gratitude. One year ago my partner and I took possession of our home on Bowen Island and Nectar Yoga B&B was born.
We have met hundreds of people in the past year from all over the world. Thank you to all my students, you are my teachers. You show me the light and teach me all I need to know.
Here are some things I’ve learned this year:
If you are not happy, make a change, maybe a really big change
All your dreams are possible but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy
Follow your intuition and base all your life choices on it, if you don’t know what intuition feels like, be still
If you have trouble sleeping, come to my house and I’ll put you to work, hard manual labour will have you sleeping like a baby
Everyone on this planet needs space to reflect and breathe
Not everyone is as clean as I am
Talk a walk in nature, you’ll feel better
Find a partner who has your back, who helps you to accelerate on your spiritual path, who gets you!
If you’re not with that person, let them go, find your soul mate, they are waiting…
This too shall pass, everything is always changing
It’s not what is happening to you, it’s how you move through it
The energy you put out is the energy you get back, action/reaction
Life is truly beautiful, even when its cold and raining
Find stillness, breathe, refill
Eat amazing food and love every bite (even full gluten, full sugar, full fat chocolate cake – love it!)
Don’t get too caught up in perfecting your diet, your body, your appearance, your yoga practice, just be a damn good person
Surround yourself with people who are vibrating at your frequency
Be real – be the actual person you portray on Facebook
Find community, if you can’t find it, create it
Making money has nothing to do with success, real success is soul to soul connection
Our body is impermanent, at any moment it could be gone, so live the life of your dreams
Say yes to every good opportunity, unless it sacrifices balance
Heal your past, forgive, mostly yourself, then everyone else
You are beautiful, you are uniquely you, no one can replicate that
See beauty in the diversity, not difference
Judging is different than noticing the reality as it is
If you have knowledge that will heal others share it, it’s potency accelerates when you share
Find the lessons and the blessings in all of your life experiences
I love island life, I love small community, I love sharing in other’s healing process, I love small details
Swim in the sea, swim in the lake, just swim, there is a deep stillness in the water
A true Yogi is someone who speaks kind and softly, who shares all they have, who sees the connection of all beings, I hope to one day be a Yogi
You are deeply wise, no truth is outside of you, it’s all within
Surround yourself with good people, but also lots of animals, they have so much wisdom and love
Go for it, today is the day, tomorrow may never come, you can do it!!
Most of all…Be Happy
These are not cliches or cute quotes I found on the internet, these are the REAL lessons I have learned this year. Thank you to the love of my life, my forever partner, without his amazing dedication and deep wisdom, this life would be the same. Thank you to all our guests and your beautiful comments, feedback, wisdom, and energy, this has made Nectar Yoga B&B so amazing.
