Join us for Pura Vida’s famous yoga and wine retreat to relax and reconnect! In this very special edition of the our popular Yoga & Wine Retreat we are stepping things up a notch by partnering with a neighbouring Muskoka Resort! This is a playful fun retreat, great as a girl’s getaway weekend or a rejuvenating personal holiday. The retreat will consist of all the same things you get at Pura Vida - yoga classes, meditations, lounging on the gorgeous resort grounds and of course discussing great wine and amazing food. However, you also get an upgrade to hotel or cottage accommodations (no camping here!), waterfront access, and full resort amenities.

All levels welcome - Beginners to Advanced. Men are welcome too! ;)

Meals
Meals are served during the time(s) indicated on the final agenda. Please be advised that if you miss a meal period you will be required to find your own meal. Due to our small facility and staff we do not have the ability to prepare meals at alternate times.

Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free meal options are available. Please indicate any dietary restrictions in the notes section of your reservation or send us an email when you book your registration. We make every effort to keep our meals wholesome and hypoallergenic, but due to the increased number of food allergies present we are not always able to meet all requests.
