Join Yoga Grove on retreat in 2018! Our reknown retreats are designed to inspire and deeply nourish you physically and emotionally. Come get away this year to de-stress completely and turn your focus inward, to a place where you're given the space and time to learn and develop your yoga and mediation practice. Leslie's retreats include yoga, meditation and pranayama practices, inspiring and practical lectures and workshops on philosophy and practice, as well as her signature small group deep-release restorative yoga classes (often with the added luxury of massage).
Restorative Yoga and Meditation Retreat at Wolfe Island
Monday to Wednesday, October 15th-17th
This indulgent mid-week retreat is designed to help you both re-energize and deeply relax, restoring and nourishing your mind, body and spirit.
Throughout your stay, enjoy sumptuous vegetarian meals that will help you feel fresh and energized. You may wish to paddle by canoe or kayak, jump on the water trampoline, swim in the river, or take an infrared sauna in the lodge. Enjoy daily meditation classes, gentle yoga classes, workshops on Yoga Philosophy and Restorative Yoga, and Yoga Grove's signature Restorative Yoga with Massage class.
Highly extolled by past participants, our Restorative Yoga with Massage class is the ultimate in relaxation. Enjoy soothing music, essential oils, and massage while you are draped in cotton blankets and relaxing deeply in fully supported restorative yoga poses. This class will be done at separate times in small groups, ensuring maximum personal attention for everyone.
Our all-inclusive price includes all meals, accommodation, classes and workshops. No prior yoga experience is necessary, and all activities are optional, should you decide that sleeping in is your yoga for the morning.
Experience deep emotional and physical release as you immerse yourself in yoga, meditation and nutrition, away from it all amid the calm, serene beauty of Wolfe Island and the vibrancy of fall.
