bowen island retreat

Join us from October 26-28th or November 23-25th, 2018, at the beautiful Nectar Yoga B&B on Bowen Island.  A perfect natural setting to restore, unwind, learn, connect with yourself and others, and find nourishment for your soul.  You will experience personal growth as you learn a new way to interact with yourself and the world around you.  Enjoy the beautiful surroundings and ocean access, take a walk to town, or find quiet space on wooded trails.  Your investment for the weekend is $850 (tax included; deposit due upon booking).  Enjoy the following offerings:



"Rising strong" in your own life

Dive deep into the practice of wholehearted living by learning to apply the work of Dr. Bren√© Brown in your own life.  As Byrdie leads you through daily growth sessions based on the "Rising Strong" curriculum 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.



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 walk on nearby trails, allow the sound of ocean waves to rejuvenate you, and enjoy conversation around the campfire (weather permitting).  Accommodation is shared (2 guests per sleeping area).

daily yoga sessions

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 five 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.


this weekend is about YOU

This weekend is about YOU.  About owning and embracing your story.  Our hope is that you will receive just what your soul needs.  That you will be filled during our time together and upon your return home.  We want you to feel free to hit the pause button and find quiet space for yourself if your soul is craving that during our time together.  To join in all actives on offer or to take a break if you need to.  To feel loved, supported and nourished.  To be yourself on the inside and outside!
