Led by Claire MacDonald and Anna White, this long-weekend retreat combines restorative yoga with reflective art classes to create the perfect balance of relaxation, creativity, and fun.

Looking to develop or deepen your yoga practice? Need to get away from the city? Looking to relax and reset? The Fircom Yoga Retreat is the place for you. This incredible adults-only, long-weekend retreat is led by the exceptional Claire MacDonald and Anna White.

Claire MacDonald (Vijnana & Yin Yoga) will lead the group through a yoga practice that links the intelligence of the body with the wisdom of the heart.  Breath-work, postures and seated meditation are the foundation of the practice. Fluid exercises that calm the nervous system and foster natural and effortless movement will be included, creating cohesion in the body. 

Anna White brings her art background to support the yoga session. Anna will also hold space for our community building throughout the retreat. Arts and crafts, playful activities, dance, singing, writing, guided reflection, and campfires are a few ways that we’ll get to connect with our hearts, each other, and the land.

Open to all ability levels. The weekend will also feature opportunities for free time to explore or rest along with optional activities like canoeing, kayaking, hiking, and archery. The meals during the retreat will be sumptuous, healthy vegetarian fare. Our kitchen team can meet all dietary needs. If you have an intersection of dietary needs/wants extra charges may apply.
