Winter Retreat at Five Oaks Retreat Centre
Paris, Ontario
January 22nd – 24th, 2016



There is a hushed magic in the darkest time of the year. Time spent moving more deeply inward is a gift we can receive from the long dark period of winter. Yoga practice in the winter can be more internal and subtle in order for us to recognize the regeneration of our core energy. Meditation and reflection will also be used to replenish our energy in this peaceful setting.

During this retreat we will offer daily yoga and meditation sessions suitable for all levels, take time for rest, reflection and being in nature, walk the indoor labyrinth together and take part in other group activities in front of a cozy fireplace. 

Fee: $380.00 – private room, all meals and full program. To register, please contact Five Oaks Retreat Centre by clicking here.

Restorative Yoga

Valerie will be offering Restorative Yoga Class on Sunday afternoons – January 17th, February 28th and March 27th from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. Give yourself the gift of time to consciously relax your body and rest your mind. Whether you think of Sunday as the end or the beginning of your week, it is a perfect time to take a break with this quiet yoga practice. Registration is required. Please call, email or register in person. $14.00 per class of $36.00 for all three.


We look forward to welcoming you for the Winter Session at Spanda Yoga!
Catherine and Valerie
