From the moment you step into your cottage, you’ll feel enveloped in tranquility and warmth, setting the stage for a transformative stay.

Yoga + Meditation: Connecting Body and Mind

Our meditation and yoga classes form the heart of the Nectar experience. Begin your mornings by reestablishing a deep connection with your body through grounding breathwork and guided meditation. You’ll have the choice to embark on a silent, meditative walk through the woods or immerse yourself in a seated meditation within our unique geodesic dome. These practices will prepare you for the asana sessions that follow, where you’ll awaken your body and approach each day with mindfulness.

In addition, our highly skilled instructors guide classes that incorporate alignment-based flow, offering modifications to suit all fitness levels and ensuring a personalized experience. Moreover, our teachings adapt to the seasons, allowing you to align your practice with the rhythmic changes of nature.

Food: Nourishment for Body and Soul

After your morning practices, join us at Onyx Lodge, where our long harvest table awaits you. Indulge in a vegetarian breakfast that’s prepared with love and intention, using locally-grown, organic ingredients sourced from Bowen Island or BC’s west coast. Savor the flavors, sip your choice of coffee or tea, and engage in meaningful conversations with fellow retreat participants. Vegan and gluten-free options are available upon request, ensuring that everyone’s dietary needs are catered to.
