The perfect spot to relax, unwind and grow in nature

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 ocean access, take a walk to town, or find quiet space on wooded trails.

Dive deep into the practice of wholehearted living by learning to apply the work of Dr. Brené Brown in your own life. As Byrdie leads you through daily growth sessions based on the Daring Way model in a small group setting, you will experience the opportunity to reflect, connect with yourself and others, and process those truths which resonate deeply with you.


Come to your mat twice daily in the amazing yoga dome to find movement, release, playfulness and stillness. Appropriate for all levels and all bodies, sessions led by Heather will leave you rejuvenated. In addition to breath work, mindfulness practice and traditional hatha and yin yoga poses, unexpected moments of fun await you in your daily practices!


Nourishing the soul also includes nourishing the body! Your weekend includes four delicious vegetarian meals enjoyed in community with one another. We are happy to accommodate special dietary needs or preferences upon request. We will enjoy dinner on Saturday evening at one of the restaurants in Snug Cove, for a chance to enjoy more of what the island has to offer.


Bowen Island is a short ferry ride from the mainland, but arrival on the island instantly makes you feel as if you’ve hit the pause button on life. Nestled among beautiful trees and a short walk from the ocean, Nectar Yoga B&B offers a beautiful setting in which to rest, grow, and restore. Unwind as you sit and soak in the forest, walk on nearby trails, or allow the sound of ocean waves to rejuvenate you. Accommodation is shared (2 guests per sleeping area).


Become part of a supportive community where smiles, hugs, encouragement, and friendship are guaranteed!


A lovely mom and daughter weekend retreat spent with 2 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.

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.
