Bloom Yoga Retreat

Join Melissa Krieger and Jenafor Ryane on Salt Spring Island for a cozy three night retreat from Thursday, November 7th to Sunday, November 10th. You'll be pampered with a variety of yoga classes, gourmet vegetarian meals and lots of free time to chill out at the beautiful Stowel Lake Farm. If you're needing time away to restore and rejuvenate this weekend is for you!

This retreat is meant to be a fun time away to recharge, eat great food, do lots of yoga and relax. There will be lots of unstructured time. In terms of yoga retreats this may be considered 'light' rather than 'serious'. If you are unsure whether this retreat is for you or not please contact Melissa directly.

You'll get to experience several styles of yoga - hatha, flow, hatha flow, restorative and yin. Plus you'll be guided through some mindfulness activities - yoga nidra, meditation and pranayama.

It's ok if you are newer to yoga or haven't practised with Melissa or Jenafor before, they will take care of you and find the options you need!

Our practice space is gorgeous and filled with natural light. Its large windows allow panoramic views of the trees. The building is so beautiful - it's warm and bright and was hand crafted by local woodworkers. Not to mention it's stocked with yoga props so we can really sink into our restorative poses.


Melissa Krieger has been teaching yoga full time since 2005 and is so excited to host her sixth weekend retreat at Stowel Lake Farm! Melissa firmly believes in the importance of self care, which is taking time out for yourself to rest, restore and relax.
