THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO WAS AT THE Summer RETREAT in August! It was wonderful sharing time with you.
 

Nature meets nurture: DURGA live


Wind down the hot busy days of Summer with a calming 3 days at the beautiful Nectar Yoga on Bowen Island.
We will take time to understand how we are guided by Nature and how it Nurtures us. Durga will be invoked. Learning her nine arms and powers and how she is the guiding force of nature.
This will be through practice, Nature Bathing Walks that allow for non-doing. Philosophy talks, and connecting to the roots of Yoga that lead us back to the nature we arrived from.

Hosted by Beverly Akhurst (Owner, Ocean Breath Yoga) ERYT 500, YACEP
3 Days and 2 Nights at the lovely Nectar Yoga B&B


Within 1.5 Hours of Vancouver. (20 minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay or 25 minutes foot ferry from GI if it is running)

Where:
The retreat will take place at Nectar Yoga B&B on Bowen Island

How to get there:
Drive onto the ferry, take a right at the first light/4 way intersection. This is Miller Road, drive to Nectar (there are a couple of T junctions along the way. Stay to the right.

Walking: Get off the ferry, walk up the sidewalk on the right hand side of the exit roadway. You will see a small translink bus on the corner by the library. Get on the one that says Miller Road. Tell the driver where you need to get off and they will drop you quite close to the entry to Nectar Yoga.
