Full Description

The South Okanagan Yoga Academy and Mugs and Bob McConnell invite you and all yoga enthusiasts who wish to deepen their practice to join them for a week-long retreat. Gather with us at this sacred, welcoming location to meditate, breathe, study and do asana together. Take advantage of spending time learning practices from Mug's book "Letters From the Yoga Masters", and retreat alongside yoga teachers from many pathways who have come to upgrade their certifications. Learn from us, learn from them, and make new connections.

For a yogi it is an essential practice to occasionally immerse oneself for a weekend or a week, away from distractions. Taking a yoga retreat has physical, emotional and psychological benefits towards coping with the stresses of everyday life. A spiritual retreat can quickly restore our inner balance and peace of mind. It can increase our dedication to our personal practice. It can create the space for immersing ourselves in spiritual study and quiet time – enabling us to go deeper.

Each morning begins at 6am with meditation, pranayama, mantra and asana. Before dinner there is another asana class and pranayama practice, then we close the day with meditation, chanting and a short spiritual discussion, ending by 8:30pm. Midday has some optional sessions including Ayurveda and Yoga for doshas, Anatomy and Yoga, and Yin fusion. You will receive a minimum of 50 hours of excellent instruction in various yoga techniques during this retreat.

Private rooms in the lodge are comfortable and cozy with a single bed, desk and bathroom. Individual showers are down the hall. Meals are vegetarian, delicious and prepared with only the best ingredients along with lots of love.
