Shanti Yoga Retreat
(Picton, Ontario, Canada)
I had the pleasure of visiting Shanti Yoga Retreat this spring, located on beautiful Wolfe Island, near Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
Before even reaching Shanti the busyness of life began to melt away as I boarded the scenic 20 minute free car ferry ride to this island getaway.
I began my stay relaxing by the waterside and enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the countryside at this lovely country inn.
Shanti's retreats consist of 4 yoga classes and yoga theory, afternoon meditations, sumptuous vegetarian meals, silent walks and evening satsang.
There was plenty of free time to nurture myself with a book, take a walk in nature, and enjoy a restorative Thai Yoga Massage by Darin a certified practitioner.
I truly found my sacred space, met some amazing people and would definitely visit again.
AMAZING AMAZING place. It feels like a 'home' - the people who own it, Wendy and Darin are so inviting, laid-back and genuinely joyful people.
They have really created a beautiful space to exhale into, surrounded with the natural wonder of the St. Lawrence river outside the window, the whispering trees, the chattering birds . . . and the food! High quality local and organic ingredients prepared with the love and care of high quality cooks and karma yogi's! Delicious.
I have been here several times, and no matter the focus of the retreat, I leave feeling loved, nourished, lighter and re-charged.
