Banff, Canada Yoga Retreat – 6 Days 5 Nights

Next Retreat: July 28-Aug 3, 2019

Step beyond your yoga mat, for there lives within all of us a longing to embrace wild nature. Should we awaken to the call, we often find that the most beautiful places in our world also lead us to the sacred and instinctual nature of our soul.

We believe there are people like us, who want a more memorable, challenging and epic experience while practicing the discipline of yoga. Our days are scheduled to include both yoga sessions, and pending location, other incredible activities such as: hiking, canyoneering, kayaking, horseback riding, swimming, scuba diving, zodiac boats, stargazing, river rafting…and much more.  Make your trip unforgettable with us and our beautiful destinations.

Yoga and meditation while in nature provide an ideal combination to bring our lives back in to focus– a sense of relaxation, effortlessness, and unconditional cheerfulness. We will alternate between meditation practices and yoga sequences to work with our mind and body that can naturally bring us back to a fresh start. You will receive tools and techniques so you will be able to continue what you learn on this retreat into your daily life. Yoga and meditation provides a dual approach for mental clarity and calmness, increased body awareness and reduced stress.

Discover relaxation and wakefulness in our pristine island, mountain and desert environments. Our yoga / adventure retreats offer contemplative approaches for working with the fullness of daily modern life, bringing insight and inspiration to career, family, health, relationships, and personal endeavors of all kinds.

Join us for a new perspective. Great for friends, couples, or individuals! Call or Contact us today for more information.

Healy Pass Hike

One of the more stunning areas just outside of Banff, the Healy Pass trail starts with a wide, rolling trail which subtly narrows. The lush forest and the bridge over Healy Creek are stunning, submerging you in the idyllic natural universe of the Canadian Rockies. After 3 miles, we escape the forest and find ourselves in a beautiful alpine meadow. After crossing a creek, we will climb up through the stunning meadow, hoping to spot wildlife across the massive, wildflower studded expanse. Reaching the gentle apex of the pass, we will see peak upon peak and stellar mountain vistas. Nearly alone in this meadow, we will enjoy a 30 minute yoga session, then descend back to the Sunshine Meadow Village.
