A Sweet Summer Yoga Retreat ~ Friday August 16 - Monday 19, 2019 Stowel Lake Farm Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, Canada

Join us for an intimate, all-inclusive Sweet Summer Yoga Retreat on beautiful Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, Canada. Salt Spring Island, an incredible destination in itself, is easy to get to via ferry or floatplane from either Vancouver or Victoria BC.

Natasha O. Mellman and Sri Hari Moss, yoga teachers from Southern California, are grateful and delighted to return to the island and share an immersive weekend of mindful movement, hatha and vinyasa yoga on this beautiful organic farm and exquisite island.

In addition to the offerings of yoga, participants may enjoy daily morning meditations, farm to table cooking classes, farm talks, wellness treatments, guided hikes and explore the plethora of nature and activities Salt Spring Island has to offer — jump in the fresh-water lakes for a swim, commune with tall trees, eagles, deer, discover the art and organic foods from the island or find yourself in quietude under the soft fragrant breeze of a mid-summer tree.

The experience of retreating on Stowel Lake Farm is divine! The farm is beautiful! - practicing organic farming methods, food forests, state of the art ecological building practices and craftsmanship. Meals are a culinary experience, with local food freshly harvested with resident chefs creating healthy and delicious meals - a significant part of the retreat experience indeed. Meals are included for all participants. With a variety of accommodations to suit, guests will find a magnificent home away from home on the farm!

We look forward to sharing the love of this sweet summer retreat with you… May you find inner peace, playfulness, solace and beauty.

About Sri Hari Moss Mindful Movement Yoga

With a focus on harmony between mind, body and spirit, Sri Hari offers students an inspired understanding of yoga practice through mindful movement in a variety of techniques and styles.

Sri Hari began his yoga journey in 1989 under the guidance of Swamini Turiyasangitananda; founder and director of The Vedantic Center and Sai Anantam Ashram in Agoura Hills, California. The study in sacred music, vedantic studies, meditation, Bhakti and Iyengar Yoga has greatly influenced his offerings.

Sri Hari shares inspirational music, dynamic stories from Hindu culture, and anecdotes to foster a clear understanding of the subtle powers within one’s practice. He frequently reminds his students to smile, laugh and find the "Rasa" (Sanskrit: Lit. "juice" or "essence") in their practice. “Yoga practice is transformative, what we learn in practice becomes part of our lives. You will be amazed at what you can accomplish, if you are willing to feel sensation, face challenge, live in the moment and breath life into everything you do.”
