Yoga & Nature on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia

Yoga Nature Retreat on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. Picture a week totally immersed in nature. No cars, traffic, noise or distractions. The sound of the sea, the wind in the trees. Eagles and hawks swooping above your head. Whales breaching, moose meandering through the camp. Every morning we will practice yoga outdoors when possible and in a dedicated space if not. Evenings we will stretch, breathe, meditate by an open fire or gaze at the million stars overhead. Native American healing will be available.
