Align body, mind, and spirit: Build a deeper connection with your yoga or wellness community at our all-inclusive Yoga Retreat centre.
Unplug and discover the pristine waters, expansive night skies, green forest and the deep peace that a visit to the Edge offers. Bring together your clients, students, or online community to practice in the forest, on the water or in the studio at our lakefront Ontario retreat centre just north of Muskoka. We’ll help you design a retreat itinerary that includes time for reflection, connection, creativity, adventure, and of course – yoga!
Pack your bag, and let us take care of the details . . .
Everything is included to help you build a healthy, robust, and engaged yoga/wellness community:
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
The Edge only hosts one retreat at a time, so it is best to inquire early to save your ideal dates. We accept a $600 deposit to reserve a retreat and close off the date to other potential groups.
But don’t just take our word for it:
"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
"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
