In Bloom Yoga Retreat with Melissa Krieger

April 19, 2018 - April 22, 2018

Join Melissa Krieger and her co-teacher Jenafor Ryane on Salt Spring Island for a three night retreat from Thursday, April 19th to Sunday, April 22nd. You’ll be pampered with a variety of yoga classes, gourmet vegetarian meals and lots of free time to chill out at the beautiful Stowel Lake Farm. If you’re needing time away to restore and rejuvenate this weekend is for you!

This retreat is meant to be a fun time away to recharge, eat great food, do lots of yoga and relax. There will be lots of unstructured time. In terms of yoga retreats this may be considered ‘light’ rather than ‘serious’. If you are unsure whether this retreat if for you or not please contact Melissa directly.

Our practice space is and gorgeous and filled with natural light. It’s large windows allow panoramic views of the trees. The building is so beautiful – it’s warm and bright and was hand crafted by local woodworkers. Not to mention it’s stocked with bolsters so we can really sink into our restorative poses. More information here.
