The family friendly yoga retreat you’ve been waiting for August 1 – 5, 2024.

Help us celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Annual Community Yoga Retreat at the magical Salt Spring Centre of Yoga!

Come and connect with new and old friends surrounded by nature, a supportive community and deeply nourishing lacto-vegetarian meals. We have an extensive Kid’s Program so everyone can reflect and renew through the timeless practices of yoga.

Our experienced and knowledgeable elders and teachers provide connection and instruction across all 8 limbs of yoga including purifying cleansing practices, breathwork, meditation, philosophy, and of course movement and posture classes.

You can sing, chant, and participate in ceremony. You can rest, play, and go for forest walks. It’s up to you! Either way, you can be assured that your time will be rich with practice and connection.
