      Yoga Retreat

    My experience at Loon Call Retreat was amazing! I do practice yoga weekly but I have never been to a yoga retreat. It was exactly what I thought. We got to practice 4 types of yoga! The food was delicious and very healthy, they accommodated my wheat allergy! It was nice to leave the technology and everyday issues aside and focus on me! I would recommend this retreat to anyone who wants some time to relax, rejuvenate and workout!

      First Time Yogi

    I couldn't have chosen a better location to lose my yoga virginity! From the moment my group of 3 friends arrived we were welcomed and spoiled. I have been struggling with a torn miniscus and lower back pain for some time. My first ever yoga class on Friday night left me feeling for the first time in a long time I could be strong again. Laurie guided us beautifully through the class and helped me modify some positions as needed. There was another group of three ladies which I thought would put me out of my comfort zone and in actuality it just added to the amazingness of the weekend. We left with new friends. Laurie has created such a wonderful safe space to relax and rejuvenate. I am someone who is usually plugged in to my electronics all the time and I barely looked at my phone because I was so enjoying just looking after myself. By the last yoga class on Sunday my flexibility and my ability to relax my mind had increased quite a bit. I was truly inspired to continue on my health journey. We enjoyed the best food....healthy and delicious and had a great outing into the town of Perth to take in a few of the local attractions such as the Perth Brewery and the Top Shelf Distillery and O'Reillys Ale house all within a 10 minute drive from the retreat. I would highly recommend Loon Call Retreat and look forward to a return trip.

      Wonderful Experience

    This place is a gem!!! What a beautiful, relaxing, renewing experience this has been. The location is beautiful, and the views of Otty Lake are breathtaking. The room we stayed in was warm and spacious and you could see that it was made with love a lot of attention to detail. Laurie is an amazing teacher, so intuitive and compassionate. The yoga classes were very educational and challenging yet suited for all levels. The food was healthy and delicious with lots of options to choose from. You will leave her retreat feeling inspired and renewed. I highly recommend the Loon Call Retreat.
