Retreats With Ocean Breath Yoga

”Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to 
listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life”. ~ Hermann Hesse

JULY 11-14, 2019     Bowen Island
Be-You-Tiful You

This retreat is a coming together of women to gather and celebrate the beauty of our internal and mental beings and how when harnessed and reconnected to nature herself we all stand in our power and grace.
This retreat will gift you time reconnecting to nature (inner and outer).
Let your mind (Buddhi) soften while the grace of your feminine divine finds its power through sound, breath, movement and stillness.
Co-Hosts Beverly Akhurst (owner Ocean Breath Yoga) and Lorna Ketler (owner Bodacious Lifestyles Inc.)
“Beauty itself is but the sensible image of the infinite.” George Bancroft

OCT. 31- NOV. 3, 2019     Bowen Island

Through The Rainbow: The Colour of Life
The time of Oct. 31st (Hallowe’en) and November 1st and 2nd (Day of the Dead) is a time to acknowledge and celebrate those times, people and things of life that have shaped us and to allow that “death” of these things is not an ending but a chance for new life. When you move Through the Rainbow you cannot help but be changed on the other side. Reflected and Refracted we break back and break through and find the colour of life within each breath we take.

Co-Hosts Beverly Akhurst (owner Ocean Breath Yoga) and Talia Garner (owner Healing Tree Massage)
