Allow yourself to surrender and feel truly at peace with your own energy after experiencing the transformation yoga can bring physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually during this amazing week.
Through the progression of the week, you will not only gain more strength and flexibility in the physical body but let go of stress, tension, and negative thought patterns that you no longer need to carry.
Exploring and moving from the external to the internal landscape is truly a Journey to the Center of the Self. Set your intention for healing, transformation, and becoming more wholehearted in 2019.

Pamela Nelson
I am a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher at the Junior Intermediate II Level. I live in Christopher Lake, Saskatchewan on a small acreage with my family. I completed my degree in Land Use and Environmental Studies and Physical Geography from the University of Saskatchewan at around the same time I started yoga and found that yoga helped me keep a deep connection to the earth and keep focused on the health of the earth and how amazing it is in the many ways it provides for us and teaches us. I started in my early 20’s, and my intention at that time was to use yoga as a way to increase flexibility after long runs or bike rides. I quickly realized how beneficial it was to not only my strength and flexibility but also my mental well-being. I love the openness yoga brings to the body and the quietness it brings to the mind. I have found it helps with confidence and personal self-acceptance.Since those early years, I have become a member of the Iyengar Association of Canada (IYAC) and certified at the national level. I have practiced yoga for over 24 years and taught for over 13, training exclusively in the Iyengar system. I have completed the rigorous and lengthy training program receiving my Introductory II certificate in 2010. Since then I have achieved my Intermediate Junior I and II Certification and am intending to proceed to the next level in 2019. I stay current by regularly attending Iyengar yoga classes, workshops, and intensives held by senior international IY teachers, including traveling to Pune, India to study with the Iyengar family in 2013 and 2018.
You will stay at a sustainable, rainforest eco-lodge hotel providing comfortable accommodations amidst acres of lush gardens, hiking trails, and a secluded jungle. The atmosphere at the retreat center is simple, healthy, and relaxed. Rooms are single, double, or triple occupancy with fans and hot water. The eco-lodge has a beautiful chlorine-free swimming pool and jacuzzi. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are prepared daily and include healthy vegetarian options. The food is organic and local when available, prepared with nourishing ingredients and lots of love.
