One of our most unique retreats combines the creative and meditative practices of yoga with art making. But don't be fooled - this doesn't mean that you need to be a yogi nor an artist. You just need to have a sense of curiosity and fun to enjoy this retreat open to all!
YogArt is a method of self-discovery developed by our founder Jennifer Kavanagh that combines movement with visual arts simultaneously, resulting in abstract images that more accurately reflect your inner world. The goal is not to make "pictures" but rather to connect the body, mind, and soul in a way that you can better understand yourself.

Guests will experience a relaxing weekend that allows them to explore a variety of fun and light-hearted exercises ranging from gentle yoga, meditation, nature art, yoga painting, and other surprising and simple activities. You will have the opportunity to create using natural products from our Muskoka forest, paint and design while practicing yoga
