People at a yoga class making a pyramid

That special place you’ve been searching for.

To make your next retreat remarkable you need a unique and truly special place to host it: a sacred spot where people are inspired to slow down, connect, and be fully in the moment.

We’re glad you’ve found us.

Since 1981, the Salt Spring Centre of Yoga has been serving as precisely that one-of-a-kind place teachers and retreat leaders are searching for.

An inspired place that a variety of groups — from immersive yoga and meditation retreats and teacher trainings to wellness retreats — return to, year after year…

to be surrounded by nature…nourished by good food…and supported by caring Centre staff while deep in study, practice, or play.

We hope you and your group will be next to join them.

“Thank you so much for all you did to make the 24th Annual Iyengar Yoga Retreat great again this year. Many say they will be back next year, if not before!”

~ Karyn Woodland, Iyengar Yoga Centre of Victoria
