Winter is a beautiful season when the mountains shine above the valley in their white-peaked glory; the rivers sparkle with clear blue ice; and the warmth of a ski chalet beckons wraps you in its cozy embrace.
Cross Country Skiing
Ideal for beginner to intermediate level cross-cross country skiers, you'll receive personalized coaching in:
Cross country ski technique and efficiency - classic technique, skate technique or both.
Ski and equipment selection and fit.
Waxing and equipment maintenance - for minimalists to wax-lovers.
Twice daily yoga and meditation practise by the cozy fire and sunrise beams in our special house-studio. Sequences will enhance lung power, core strength and relaxation.
Yoga flow practise and postures for your mat at home.
Meditation and mindful yoga practise.
Breathing to expand lung capacity and exercise ease.
We are so excited to have Kenley Knock (Vernon) and Sarah Harvie (Golden) leading us on the mat - read their bios here!
Personal Chef and Deluxe Accommodation
We stay in luxury homes with a personal in-house chef to keep our bodies fuelled with clean and whole inputs. Our beloved Julie Marshall will be joining us in Vernon, and our chef for Golden will be announced shortly.
The cross country ski trails are literally out the back door at both locations so you can park your car and not look at it again for the duration of the retreat.
Massage therapists to help you relax and recover. 30 minutes of massage is included with your registration. Additional massage can be purchased from the therapists on site, but you will have to get off the table at some point so others can also enjoy some therapy.
Driving in the winter is not fun, so we've got you covered. For the retreat in Golden we'll provide a shuttle from Calgary or Canmore. For the retreat at Vernon, we'll provide a shuttle from the airport in Kelowna.
Don't let ski equipment, or travelling with ski equipment be a hurdle for you. We can organize quality rental gear for you through our partnership with Fischer and Swix.
Skiing, yoga, eating and massage is a lot to fit into a long weekend. Check out our sample itinerary by clicking on the button below.
