It’s time to Release, Reset, Retreat…


Are you ready to bring your vision, gifts, beauty and spirit into deeper manifestation for the fulfillment of your own potential and for the evolution of humanity? This is a unique opportunity at a powerful time in humanity’s evolution. The planet needs you…


…and this is why we’d like to invite you to beautiful Kelowna, British Columbia to further your Awakening, Transformation and Healing. Join us for the Annual Spring Yoga Retreat.


Let us support you in remembering and renewing  who you really are; to awaken to a new reality, both inwardly and outwardly. In order for something new to unfold in our lives, we must create space for it by letting go of the old stories and old beliefs. Surrendering  is an art that until it has been learned, one is always living out the old, the conditioned. This is the root to most of our frustration, suffering and misery. Let’s release it together.

Are you ready to:
Discover yourself through movement, music, and meditation?
Release the old stories and patterns in your life?
Remember who you really are?
