September Yoga Retreat at Harmony Dawn, Rice Lake, Ontario
Friday, September 15, 2017 to Sunday, September 17, 2017

"SUSTAINABLE SPAS ~ With Eco-spas on the rise, we can focus our worries on deciding between a massage or a facial and less about our carbon footprint. Harmony Dawn Retreat in Rice Lake (a 90 minute drive from Toronto) is a 50-acre resort that survives off-grid by using solar and wind power. Better yet, its south-facing windows give way to stunning woodland views." ~ Toronto Star

Clear your mind, breathe deep, stretch, relax, laugh, refresh.

This September's BIG yoga retreat is located at Harmony Dawn Retreat Centre on 50 rolling acres of meadow and forests, which lead right down to Rice Lake, part of the picturesque Trent Waterway system.

During this weekend you will either begin or deepen your practice of Yoga with asana, pranayama and meditation classes daily. Free time to swim in the lake, read, enjoy an old-fashioned bonfire, reconnect with nature on a hike or just lay back, relax and enjoy the views will complement this time of learning, healing, inspiration and rejuvenation. Bring along your bike or your running shoes if you'd like. Legendary vegetarian meals (spa cuisine) will be prepared for you by renowned and published Chef Nicola Lawrence James. Meals are prepared from herbs and vegetables from Harmony Dawn's gardens.

This delightful weekend includes 6 fabulous meals, 5 yoga classes, a guided hike and meditation. Come alone or bring a friend. Beginners welcome and encouraged. Register early to avoid disappointment - space is limited.
