Restore Your Soul as you relax, unwind and grow in nature

OCTOBER 17-20, 2019


We LOVE hosting retreats at Nectar Yoga B&B on Bowen Island.  It provides a perfect natural setting along BC's amazing coastline in which to restore, unwind, learn, connect with yourself and others, and find nourishment for your soul.

As you step onto the ferry from Horseshoe Bay, you'll start to feel that beautiful sense of being on "island time" take over.  Our retreat guests are often greeted by deer at some point during their weekend stay in this quiet forest paradise.  Enjoy being surrounded by quiet forest, with the option to take a walk in the area or journey toward town or the ocean.

Nectar Yoga B&B has recently moved to a new location on Bowen. A thoughtfully and beautifully conceived retreat oasis awaits you!

A lovely weekend retreat spent with two kindred spirits, hosts and facilitators, Heather & Byrdie. Learning, sharing, eating, laughing, yoga and dancing amongst a peaceful, natural setting at Nectar Yoga, on Bowen Island. Connecting with ourselves, each other, and nature made for a very special, love-filled, beautiful weekend with my daughter and all the ladies at the retreat.

This retreat exceeded any expectations I had. From the moment I arrived I felt cared for and loved. As the weekend unfolded it was amazing to feel how the group connected in the beautiful space that was held for us by Byrdie and Heather. I left rested, with new ideas I can incorporate into my daily life, and a sense of really loving who I am.

My wife and I were so thankful to take part in the Restore Your Soul Retreat last October on beautiful Bowen Island. We so appreciated how Heather and Byrdie cared for us the entire weekend, sharing their generous gift of hospitality through delicious meals and deep conversation that met us exactly where we were at. I grew so much from taking part in the Restore Your Soul retreat, and we recommend it unconditionally.
