"Picture this - laying on your yoga mat gazing up into the blue sky through a perfect circle of trees. The clouds are passing quickly creating a new moment reminding me how quickly the present changes. Dragonflies and birds are flying above creating the most beautiful picture of nature. We listen to the crackle of the fire and the swing of golfers hitting their first ball. The 75 minute class was a calming, energizing, beautiful way to be one with nature."Lisa - Yoga & Spa Participant

I believe in the healing power of nature. Deep breaths under tall trees, cleansing dips in fresh water, and bare feet on on the earth have the power to draw us away from our chaotic lives and into the moment. Bringing yoga out into nature is a magical experience, creating a connection that goes beyond mind, body, and spirit. We become connected to the elements: the sun warming our bodies, the wind calming the mind, the water cooling the body, and the air nourishing the spirit.

We are so excited to be working with Thermëa Winnipeg once again on their yoga & spa series this summer. Their epic space is the ultimate healing escape in nature, with aromatherapy steam baths, mineral pools, salt scrubs, and so much more. Adding outdoor yoga, a guided nature meditation, and a nourishing snack is the ultimate addition to this healing ritual.

The middle of January isn't typically a time of year that we look forward to in Winnipeg — but on January 15th prairie yogis turned a cold day in the midst of winter into something magical.

Over 300 people decided to create space in their winter for light, positivity, and self-care at the stunning Fort Garry Hotel for #SNOWFLAKE2017.

Instructors from across Western Canada offered inspiring workshops in breathtaking spaces: we discovered the Tao of Calm with Wesley Salter, Forged Ourselves with Randelle Lusk, Replenished our Spirits with Ashley Bourgeois, discovered the Feng Shui Magic with Vanessa Kunderman, found our San Kulpa with Marisa Cline, + flowed through delicious self-care practices with awesome local instructors.

As always — the open-heartedness of this community completely blew me away.

When I dream up these celebrations, I hope people show up, sure. But my truest desire is for people to show up + dive in. To themselves. To the things they have been running from and need to face before they can let go. To their practice, to soak in the benefits and find inspiration to keep coming back to the mat for the days, week, and years to follow. I witnessed many of the things happen before my very eyes, and I am so grateful to those who showed up, dove in, and nourished their bodies, minds + spirits

Thanks to Well Curated + Co for capturing these beautiful moments. Search #SNOWFLAKE2017 on Instagram to see more photos from the community.



PS - I would love if you'd join me on one (or both!) of my upcoming retreats with Demetra Penner of Sweet Spirit Apothecary — B A L A N C E spring equinox retreat at Hecla Island Resort + Sacred Solstice Women's Retreat in Tofino BC

B A L A N C E - a spring equinox retreat to restore body mind + spirit

images by : well curated + co.

During the spring equinox
light + darkness exist in balance
As we enter into a season bathed in colour, light, and potentiality.

Join us for a weekend of nurturing balance within + without
Cultivating inspiration from the freshness of water,
And the perennial rebirth of the flora.

We will relax + renew
Connect with nature + each other
Nurture the seeds within that we wish to see grow.

Your guides Rachelle Taylor & Demetra Penner bring their enthusiasm + experience to create sacred space for growth + healing at the Hecla Island Resort, just 2 hours north of Winnipeg March 24 - 26, 2017.
