Join Nicole Whitman & Prestonne Sehn for an earthy retreat at the beautiful Loon Lake Retreat Center in Maple Ridge. This retreat is all about connection, relaxation and fun. Enjoy cabinesque accommodation in a woodsy setting, nutritious gourmet meals and daily Yoga and Meditation offerings. All activities are optional, leaving lots of time for rest and relaxation if you desire.
Imagine a day where you can practically roll from your bed to your yoga mat, and be lead through an uplifting yoga practice. On this retreat we will practice twice daily – the morning practice will be energetic and awakening, focusing on movement with breath, strength and balance. The evening practice will be calming, restorative and relaxing, preparing you for a restful nights sleep.
There is a magic that occurs when we sit on the water, surrounded by nature in quiet contemplation. The serene and calm private waters of Loon Lake provide the perfect backdrop for meditation. We will start and end each day with 20 minutes of silent reflection on the dock. New to meditation? We would be happy to teach you some techniques!
The earthy setting of Loon Lake provides an atmosphere perfect for grounding and connecting with nature. Hike through the tall trunks of Firs and Evergreens to the calm sparkling waters of the private lake, which glitter in the morning sunshine. The calm energy that the forest exudes is the perfect setting for finding peace, unwinding and reconnecting. We offer daily hikes, nature walks, swimming, paddle boarding and canoeing to soak up all this majestic spot has to offer.
Everything is optional on this retreat, so feel free to sleep in and skip the morning meditation, or take a nap during hike time! A sample day looks like this:
7:00am – 7:30am Morning Meditation on the Lake
