Shanti Retreat, Wolfe Island, Kingston, Ontario

The Yogic Journey: Moving Towards Stillness


I invite you to join me on a voyage of discovery as we explore the yogic journey of moving inwards towards spirit. This retreat is for anyone interested in refining the skills of listening to the voice of our bodies, of paying attention to the entirety of our selves, of finding the stillness we all embody and share, and of settling into a deep knowing of our place and connection to all that is. We'll explore practices that include hatha yoga, yin yoga, yoga nidra and a variety of breathing and meditation techniques, with the intention of developing a better understanding of the yogic concept of the KOSHA's, the five metaphorical layers of our human form.


This retreat is appropriate for yogi's just curious to learn more, and for those needing time to delve deeper into their practice. Physical practices will be appropriate for yogis of all abilities as we will be more concerned with delving into connection than with exacting form.


In between our scheduled practices there will be plenty of time to enjoy all the beauty that is so abundant at Shanti. Food that nourishes the body and soul, connection to mother earth through water and fire, laughter and joy spending time with like-minded practitioners, and deep times of rest and relaxation will be yours during this 4-day, three night retreat.  Please join me on my 15th retreat to Shanti Retreat on Wolfe Island!
