Your Spring Yogascape Retreat at Cabot Shores

April 27, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - April 29, 2018 @ 1:00 pm

Blaine Carter mediating in front of a waterfall

Join Josette and Blaine on a revitalizing spring yoga retreat as we connect with nature.

April 27-29, 2018

Yoga teachers Josette and Blaine

As the cold of winter transitions to the warmth of summer, take time to nourish body and soul as we journey through the five elements.

Your Yogascape will be shaped by incorporating the aspects of ether, air, earth, wind and fire into our activities to nourish body and soul. Move through Flow and Yin Yoga classes, hike to Kalapa Valley falls, and savour warming foods. Discuss philosophy of self care, practice Yoga Nidra, gaze into a bonfire, and soak in a hot tub. This is your opportunity to connect with like minded people while having the unique opportunity to stay in a yurt on beautiful Cape Breton Island!

All meals provided during the retreat will be vegan unless otherwise requested. All participants are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item(s) for a local food bank.

“This was my first yoga retreat but not my last! Josette and Blain were excellent facilitators ! The retreat gave me an opportunity to take a break from life’s distractions ! A safe environment where we can step back and see our true selves, taking time to watch the thoughts or behaviors that hold us back, and clear away our mental and spiritual clutter. This is what this retreat did for me!! Thank you Josette, Blaine and the wonderful staff at CabotShores!” – Brenda W.

Blaine Carter of Embrace the Sun Yoga

Blaine started yoga in search of a cure for his constantly sore lower back! It started during random lunchtime classes at work, and then quickly escalated into a consistent Bikram practice. This sold him on hot yoga, where he has consistently practiced hot yoga ever since. Blaine has been teaching for over 2 years now and has consistently built upon the knowledge gained from the 200hr Registered Yoga Teacher training. Having completed SUP Yoga teacher training, 50hr Yin Yoga training, a yoga retreat to India, several Wanderlust festivals and online training with Sienna Sherman, Janet Stone and Juan Pablo Barahona, he continues to dig deeper into all aspects of yoga. The connection with nature and sharing his passion for yoga with others has “really stoked the fire within…”
