Check-in begins at 2pm on Friday July 6, 2018. Our opening session will start at 4pm. Check-out is around 3pm on Sunday July 8th, 2018.
Will there be free time?
Yes, lots of it. Just for you. There will be a focused group gathering in the morning, and one in the late afternoon, and the rest of the time is all yours.
If you feel overwhelmed by the free time, I'll have suggested hikes and activities for you.
Who is this retreat for?
This retreat is for people who want to spend time with themselves as a way to tune into their intuition and deepest "knowing." It's for people who want to focus on themselves and be more present; for people who enjoy nature and are happy to be in the forest. The SSRC is rustic and most paths are winding gravel pathways, so you'll want to be prepared for rustic outdoors.
Who is this retreat not for?
This retreat is not for you if you require five-star accommodation, or if your idea of peace is a world without mosquitoes. It's not for you if you would rather not spend time with yourself for half of a day, or if you expect someone else to be present for you.
What kind of yoga will there be?
In the mornings we'll do stimulating Hatha yoga style. This is a strong and stimulating yoga that will help you to tune into the simple wisdom of your body. Expect mindful movement with invigorating postures, pranayama (breathing techniques) and a thorough wind-down. Hatha is different from Vinyasa because it doesn't include so many chaturangas.
Evening practices will be a slow Yin style, with a focus on integrating and grounding.
I welcome any level of student, though this is not a beginner yoga retreat. You will get the most out of this experience if you have done yoga before. The pace will be slower, but rigorous. If you're a total beginner, I'd suggest taking 10+ yoga classes to get familiar with the bare basics before coming in July.
Can I choose who I share a room with?
Yes. Please send me an email or fill out the contact form below.
Where is the retreat?
The Sea to Sky Retreat Centre is about 25km south of Whistler, just off the Sea to Sky Highway. The Centre is accessed by a long gravel road, so be aware that your car will face some potholes.
Will there be prancing?
What do I need to bring?
Please bring yourself, a yoga mat, athletic footwear, a towel, clothing to be outside in any weather (ie sunscreen, a raincoat, a hat), and a headlamp or flashlight. And, of course, your personal belongings such as clothing, a toothbrush etc.
