Give yourself the gift of time and space to breathe and release.

The location offers us plenty of opportunities, whether walking the labyrinth,  hiking the trails, checking out the orchard, quiet reflection–you choose. We use the Main Meeting Hall for yoga and the Lodge for our sleeping quarters. The Hall nestles amongst trees, and the Lodge provides 15 bedrooms. There’s plenty of delicious vegetarian food.

Special meals can be provided at extra cost and must be ordered 1 week prior – please contact the Studio if you need special meals. What to bring? Your own yoga mat and an extra blanket if you can. The Centre provides bedding, pillows, and towels. Bring a flashlight if you have one. There’s no need for make-up, perfume, shaving, or jewellery.


Your payment is separated into two parts. Registration is accepted on receipt of the Studio portion of the payment for yoga ($195, non-refundable, due now). We accept cash, cheques, debit, MasterCard and Visa or pay using PayPal. Please call the Studio to leave your credit card information.
