Transomatic Yoga & Breathwork Retreat

With Shama and Shannon

December 5 - 8, 2019

Take a break from your busy lives to come join us and explore your authentic self with somatic yoga and transomatic breathwork.

*Continuing Education Credits for certified yoga teachers (Yoga Alliance – optional)!  

This special program is designed for you to have a little break from your busy lives, and to have a chance to reset your nervous system, create harmony, silence and joy within.

With the quick pace of society today, very little time is left for doing the self-work needed to re-connect with one’s true self.  Increased traumas, stress and lack of ability to express or release this stress inevitably causes tension and eventually illness in the body. This rejuvenating retreat is an experimental approach to experience oneself in a safe, loving space where you can have a chance to let go of your accumulated stress, come back to your body, and re-connect with your emotions, giving them a chance to be expressed and integrated.

Throughout your days on the magical mountainside, you will learn to gently release your body armour and defence mechanisms and experience what it feels like to come HOME to your body. In this workshop you will  learn to release tension and create space for profound healing. You will find your vitality and restore harmony in your mind-body connection.

In addition to the retreat schedule, enjoy an array of colourful, nourishing and well-balanced meals lovingly made by professional chefs and consciously sourced from the organic, on-property garden.  Relax in the beautiful Maloca or enjoy some spare time in the cedar hot tub or sauna looking out at the Kootenay Mountains. Pamper yourself with a massage or other bodywork treatment steps away from your room.

Expert therapists in their fields, Shannon & Shama come together to offer this wholistic opportunity for the first time on the West coast.

We invite you to take a journey from tension to relaxation in this unique three-day fusion retreat. We hope you can join us for this invigorating and memorable experience!

  • Daily yoga practices (Yoga Alliance CEU for RYTs)

  • Daily breathwork sessions (to create a gentle release and trauma resolution in your nervous system )

  • Daily active meditations (to learn how to support your nervous system in your daily lives)

  • Daily Ayurvedic practices (to rejuvenate the mind & body)
