One Day Yoga Retreats for Women We invite you to escape to the Kawarthas....
This is an invitation to an experience that is curated for both new and dedicated yoginis, nature lovers, meditation enthusiasts, mothers, aunts, sisters, beloved friends and conscious women of all ages.
We invite you to join us in the serene natural beauty of the Kawartha's and the tranquil, peaceful space that is Sarovara Yoga Studio & One Day Retreat Centre.
We are so excited to offer you this rare opportunity to curate your very own retreat day with your loved ones. A time to dive deep into personal sadhana (practice) and sangha (community), to recharge every kosha (layer of your self).
Our lead teacher and retreat director, Ally offers creative, flowing, kripalu-style yoga that recharges the whole self. With emphasis on the deeper practices of yoga. Her classes inspire a connection to the wisdom of prana (life force) and a deep honouring of experience of the present moment and the gift of life itself.
Rooted in her Kripalu lineage, this day-long soulful journey is a groundbreaking immersion for the modern day woman with mornig yoga, pranayama, meditation, yoga nidra, connection with nature, earth & healing waters.
Our team would be honoured if you would join us for a day on the shores of Pigeon Lake, Bobcaygeon Ontario....
