Looking for a partner to co-create and support your retreat? Pair your unique offerings with our years of experience in delivering quality transformational retreats.
Nestled in the woods of Algonquin Park just north of Muskoka, we have spent the last 20+ years inspiring and supporting meaningful, positive transformation through a great variety of retreat programs.
If you want to nourish, support and inspire people and want to make the world a better place, we’d like to help you make it happen. More than a venue to host your retreat, we specialize in partnership. We’ll provide insight and opportunities to enhance your programs with our formula for transformational facilitation in the way of the circle, helping you to weave elements of creativity, adventure, nature-connection, community celebration, and dreamtime into your once-in-a-lifetime retreat experience.
It’s all included. Make your retreat truly memorable with:
A Co-Facilitator/Host from our community to support you and your group throughout the retreat, plus our insight in planning your retreat program & itinerary
Use of our prop collection, program materials and equipment (mats, blocks, bolsters, straps, eye pillows, meditation cushions, sound system, outdoor adventure gear, art materials, and more)
Accent activities that may include: paddleboarding, canoeing, kayaking, nature walks, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, cooking, art, specialized workshops, and more (all led by your host or one of our local partners)
Complimentary early arrival for facilitators the night before your retreat, with personal retreat time to set the space and prepare
Accommodation & meal packages from $616/person, depending on participants’ accommodation selection and the length of the retreat.
Retreats at the Edge require a minimum of 10 attendees.
Your own Program Fee can be added on to create an all-inclusive rate, or charged separately.
I’m in – what’s next?
Whether you are looking to gather a community of writers, educators, caretakers, artists, healers, or educators – we are here to guide you from start to finish through your Ontario retreat planning experience. Connect with us to share your vision and check availability:
The Edge only hosts one retreat at a time, so it is best to inquire early to save your ideal dates. We accept a $750 deposit to reserve a retreat and close off the date to other potential groups.
But don’t just take our word for it:
"Classes and workshops are really wonderful, but in terms of connection and integration and relationship building, retreats are so, so rich in depth and intimacy. Being in a studio all the time, which is INCREDIBLE, its also really missing a huge piece to the puzzle, one that is intimately intertwined to yoga, and thats nature. To be able to slow down and feel Mama Natures embrace, thats life changing. And that a really beautiful thing to witness in your participants. One of my most favourite aspects of the whole experience: working with [Edge host] Tim. It was just SOOOO great having him there for the weekend. I felt so, so supported and taken care of and it took any feelings of unease or hesitation or doubt out of running a retreat. He was there. Gently, quietly, but present and all in. And I learned A LOT about leading. For me, I can feel insecure and introverted and it was SUCH a great reminder to simply show up for people. Exactly as I am, but be there for them in the best way I know how." -Shannon MacLaggan, Owner, White Pine Yoga Read Original Post
"The staff is attentive, passionate about creating a restful experience for you and have thought of everything. The buildings are spotless and cozy and the facilities are beautiful, well laid out and fit into the natural environment. And the food -- the best, most plentiful, creative, delicious, organic local food imaginable... The sauna was the highlight for me, dipping into the lake and back into the sauna all afternoon meant my body was fully renewed. The yoga studio overlooking the lake and the meditation room are peaceful and lay the groundwork for a wonderful transformative retreat." -Anna Hardwick, October 2018 Read Original Post
