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
"I have hosted a yoga retreat at Northern Edge for 3 years in a row now. This place is purely magical and our guests absolutely agree. The layout of the centre is perfect for yoga, relaxing and exploring. There are various locations you can hold classes and meditations such as; outdoors in front of the main house by the water, the large dock, in the large indoor studio and a smaller indoor studio which is perfect for meditation and discussions . . ." -Monica Holland, Yoga Teacher, Peterborough Read Original Post
