The #Atozselflove Yoga Retreat began in 2016 as an annual two-day retreat. Due to Covid in 2020, we decided to pivot to the day retreat to keep everyone safe. While the venue is hosting overnight stays, this was a personal choice for me to keep everyone safe. You are welcome to inquire with Nectar Yoga about staying on location outside of this retreat!
In addition to your ticket, guests will receive a carefully curated swag bag packed full of goodies to help continue your self-care journey at home because self-care is a non-negotiable.
Please note that NO REFUNDS will be offered in case of venue closure due to COVID, the event will be rebooked for a later date when safe to do so.
Guests will be required by the BC Government to show proof of your first Covid-19 vaccine dose upon arrival, and proof of both doses by October 24, 2021.
A friendly reminder that this not a business choice on our part, but rather a government order, and we have to follow the regulations, by law, in order to operate. Opinions around this mandate can be directed to your local MP.
Please refer to Nectar Yoga Policies here: https://www.
Unfortunately due to the nature of this event babies and children are not able to attend!
The ferry to Bowen Island leaves from Horseshoe Bay, you will want to check the Ferry schedule to ensure you arrive in time for the 9:30 nature walk of KIllarney Lake, which is 9km total length. Information about Killarney Lake can be found here https://www.vancouvertrails.com/trails/killarney-lake/
Upon arriving back we will then make arrangements for lunch, there will be 3 options, you are responsbile for yourself for each option
1. Bring your own bagged lunch & have picnic
2. Go to Artisan Eats Cafe for delicious Panini's and Lavender lattes
3. Pre-Order Rice Bowls from Nectar Yoga's Neighbour Orbaek and have picnic at Nectar Yoga.
After lunch, we will have a private yoga session with meditation from the owner Andrea Clark. We have the dome until 6pm, so we are able to hang out and continue our talks, take photos and leave well-rested, cup filled and with more friends than you started with.
DEPART SAME DAY anytime between 5 and 6pm, or feel free to stay on Bowen as you wish!
It's amazing what like minded women can do when they truly come together to lift each other up! Join us and let's make self-love a lifestyle, not an event we observe once a year! You're worth it!
This retreat is something special. It's the perfect opportunity to invest a little into yourself; you get to relax and recharge in a beautiful scenery. thinking about wheb I went brings me te feeling of peace~ it was just lovely.
I have been so fortunate to be able to attend this retreat 3 times and each time it’s exactly what I needed, when I needed it. Janette pours her heart and soul into this, making it an incredible experience for everyone. Her swag bags alone are worth the cost of going lol. (For real. The best.)
But even more than that, I will forever be grateful to her for introducing me to this little slice of paradise. Bowen Island has a special place in my heart, and specifically Nectar Yoga. Spending time in the dome with Andrea doing movement and meditation is always a highlight.
And if you are wondering if this retreat is for you? It is! I remember being nervous because I was not in shape and had basically never done yoga. It doesn’t matter where you are at, so don’t let that stop you like it almost did for me the first year.
I’ve been wanting to take part in this yoga retreat for YEARS, and this past year was my first time and man am I ever glad I went! It was my first putting post baby and it was such a treat for this new mom.
Everything was meticulously planned from the ferry to the food to the amazing yoga, hike and goodie bag. I can not WAIT to make this an annual tradition!
I attended this retreat a couple of years ago and it was just what I needed. As a busy mom, I rarely take time to do something like this for myself!
The location is a treat in itself - quiet, serene, amongst the trees. The accommodations were comfortable and cozy. Bowen island is so close yet feels worlds away once you arrive for the retreat.
Janette is the hostess with the mostest! She made sure that everyone was comfortable and had every detail planned. Her passion for this retreat is evident!
The yoga was suitable for all levels and the yoga dome is amazing - even just sitting in that space is relaxing!
I highly recommend this retreat, especially after the year we’ve all had. You’ll leave feeling recharged and refreshed.
Thoroughly enjoyed the day retreat, as an opportunity to take time for myself & recharge. Every part of the day is perfectly planned & thought out by Janette, to ensure participants get the most of their experience. Bowen is such a beautiful place to visit, and the hike was not too difficult. The Nectar property is beyond stunning, the yoga was amazing & suitable for all levels.
