Both Leah Suters and Sarah Downs are yoga teachers and massage therapists with decades of experience. Leah will be your Ayurvedic chef providing a sumptuous, seasonal, colourful and creative menu. Our mission is that your body, mind and spirit are zinging after these retreats and you have plenty of clarity and energy to move through Spring into Summer.
 
A retreat is allows the practitioner to go deeper into their practice and internal world. It can offer the opportunity to evaluate, let go and transform.
