Winter Yoga Retreat Niagara

Practice yoga, connect with nature, and try some wine on this all day retreat in Niagara-on-the-lake, Ontario! 

Don’t let the winter blues get in the way of your inner yogi!

The key to a happier and healthier lifestyle is taking time for self-care and trying new experiences that involve movement, mindfulness and mega fun! This season, escape to Niagara-on-the-Lake and discover snowga!  Practice yoga while connecting to nature in your snowshoes, taste delicious wine and locally made healthy food and meet new people or book your own private or corporate group retreat (min. 6).  

Experience a slow and gentle yoga class designed for all levels in the snow (indoors if weather doesn’t cooperate) and a guided snowshoe hike (5km loop) along the Niagara River Parkway as we visit 3 boutique wineries.  Sip and savour Niagara’s finest vintages and fuel your body with a locally made healthy high tea lunch. 

Our weekend wellness day retreats offer a unique mini getaway from chaotic city living with a little adventure, a lot of fun, and a healthy balance of movement, food and wine!

What's Involved

This class is for beginners and advanced practitioners alike, so don’t worry if you’ve never showshoed or practiced yoga before!  If you can walk then you can snowshoe and if you can breathe, you are practicing yoga! 

Slow flow, gentle yoga class in the snow at our first winery

No experience necessary, no mat, allow the snow shoes to help with balance and stability and to transition into certain poses. Not enough snow? No worries, we practice on our mats inside the winery! Class starts at 10am sharp.

Enjoy a delicious lunch created by local chefs

Fuel your body with local chef created nutrient dense high tea lunch and hot mushroom elixir and organic tea bevies. We will also do our best to accommodate specific dietary needs so you don’t have to miss out on anything! Your eco high tea lunch comes wrapped up in a take home tea towel that serves as a napkin too! Containers are plastic-free and all compostable!

Snow shoe hike to different wineries for a tour and tasting.

We then strap on snow shoes (provided for you) and hike along the Niagara Parkway path at our next two wineries to enjoy some of their best vintages. At each of the 3 wineries you will receive 3 sample tastings and learn about the history and wine making culture of the winery. Purchases can be made at the wineries and you can pick them up at the end of the retreat day (4pm).
