3 Nights / 4 Days

September 23rd-25th, 2018

This being our first retreat, we are inviting friends, family, colleagues and people who inspire us. We want you to be the first to discover what Lōkahi YogAdevntures is all about and experience what we have to offer as a new business. We also think you deserve an amazing 4 days to treat yourself to nutritious food, delicious wine, fun & inspiring yoga classes, cool workshops and a chance to meet some other like-minded, awesome people and simply just get some 'you' time.

 

Beyond that, You are someone who's opinion we trust, and who we believe can offer us an advantageous perspective, constructive criticism and beneficial thoughts and ideas. We ask that everyone keep in mind, we are looking for feedback and we hope you offer it openly.

We can't wait to Celebrate the Harvest Moon with you!

Hammocks are strung over a mossy area next to the creek for meditation, reading or relaxing.

Walking trails lead up the mountain from the property or Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park is 5 minutes down the road.

We aim to serve meals that are creative, delicious and filled with nutrition to fuel the day.

Recipes will be given to participants at the end of the adventure.

We provide meals made from as much locally sourced food as possible. We use foraged and seasonal ingredients.

Cooking with the flavours of the land sometimes means we serve meat and fish, however we can adjust to any dietary concern.

Activities

We want you to make this your trip. All activities are optional, however all activities are included in the price.

Morning Yoga Class

These will be invigorating classes meant to warm up and strengthen the body. Each day we will build up and focus on a different arm balance or inversion.

Evening Yoga Class

Deeper Yin and restorative classes will be lead at night. Allowing the body time to rejuvenate and recoup from the day and ending in a calming mediation to encourage a peaceful sleep.

Mala Making Workshop

We have collaborated with Kalika Jewelry Designs to bring you founder Liette Foy.  Liette will be guiding you through the importance & use of Mala's while you hand select the gemstone beads that you will use to craft your own personal Mala from.  Find out more about Kalika & Liette here.

Mountain Hike & Wild Plant Identification

We will be taking a hike through the beautiful Kokanee Provincial Park while we identify native plants that can be used medicinally and for cooking.

A picnic lunch will be set up during the  hike and a guided meditation will be offered which allows for a deep connection to the powerful Kootenay Region.

Massage & Reiki
