A Yoga & Wellness Retreat You Don't Want to Miss!

A Yoga & Wellness Retreat You Don't Want to Miss!

Have you heard the news?

I will be co-hosting my second yoga & wellness retreat, the Uniquely Pure Retreat 2019, this October 4th – 6th. My friend, co-host and creator of the retreat, Kelly Mayville, is a Holistic Therapist and Aromatherapist, yoga instructor and owner of Uniquely Pure Studio in Belwood, Ontario.

Joining us for her second time is Jasmine Keith, yoga instructor and owner of Active Turtle in Bala, Muskoka. For her first time we will also be joined by Janet Egan, yoga instructor and Holistic Therapist practicing in Erin, Ontario.

Our first retreat, the Ommm Retreat in September 2018, was one of the most profound, healing and inspiring weekends of my entire year. The experience created in me a feeling of realignment, connection, and creativity. Amongst the group there was a feeling of comfort, familiarity and love. I left feeling so light and revitalized!

My contribution on behalf of Well & Free was a make-your-own mason jar salad workshop with a free recipe and meal planning printout, as well as a morning smoothie demonstration.

I’m very excited for the theme of this year’s retreat: learning a ceremonial way of life. There will be yoga and meditation classes, an introduction to smudging, guided ceremonies, vibrant plant-based meals and so much more.

In alignment with the theme, my contribution this year will be all about intuitive eating and grounding fall foods. I will be running a workshop on seasonal eating with a free anti-inflammatory meal plan and other helpful printouts. There will be a medicinal tea bar available throughout the weekend where you can learn about different teas that help with various symptoms, such as gastrointestinal discomfort, inflammation and anxiety. There will even be a movie night with a healthy, nutrient-packed popcorn snack!

It is truly hard to put into words how magical last year’s retreat was, and I can only imagine how ground-breaking this year’s grounding retreat is going to be.

Here’s what a couple of last year’s participants had to say about the Ommm Retreat:

The experience felt like a real sisterhood — almost like a bunch of women having a big connected, healing sleepover. I like that the atmosphere was so intimate where we all did yoga together in that room, the blankets and how we all ate together at one big community table.
— Natasha N.
It was a lovely experience! The classes, setting and gourmet meals were purr-fect! Sun salutations at sunrise over Lake Rosseau were incredible. I came home revitalized for life and my yoga practice.
— Teresa W.
