Okanagan Yoga Retreats - What are we up to today?
So grateful to have this beam of light leading our Kelowna retreat this June!! Officially welcoming our yoga sister @aleenabuddhabeatsyoga to the #oyrtribe ... but really, she’s kind of always been here anyway. 💕. Aleena brings all the genuine Okanagan love - warm, approachable, funny and a little (ok a lot) sassy. She’s just returned from assisting world- renowned Canadian yoga teacher Eion Finn at Wanderlust Oahu, and we are so thrilled to have her. ☀️ There are just a few spots left in this retreat JUNE 21-23 at sister resorts @manteoresort + @eldoradokelowna. The classic OYR experience comes to Kelowna. Sunshine vibes paired with long, slow savasana’s. Yes, it really is perfect.

We believe that yoga is for everyone, and that everyone can benefit from a practice that teaches us how to; . 🌱Slow down 🌱Be present 🌱Intentionally calm and still self-limiting beliefs 🌱Develop practices that cultivate compassion and resiliency ☀️ On retreat, yoga and meditation practices are ultimately customized to the unique needs of the group. From gentle and restorative, strength, centering, injury education or healing practices, this is yoga designed to not only be fun, but also to inspire you to continue to build a practice for life. ☀️ We still have a few spaces left in our Kelowna retreat Jun 21 - 23 at @manteoresort & @eldoradokelowna.

The Okanagan is the PERFECT place for a yoga retreat. Extraordinary natural locations, warm temperatures, vineyards and views. There is literally something for everyone. Just a short drive from Vancouver and a VERY short flight (or scenic drive) from Alberta. We welcome all levels of yogis, all ages and stages, in all shapes and configurations. We celebrate diversity and inclusivity always. Join us for a few days of sun and savasana here in desert wine country. Only a Few Spots left for 2019, Register Now! 🌞🍑🍷🧘♀️

Happy New Year friends! Is this the year you finally join us? We declare 2019 the year we live all heart, no filter! Self-love redefined. It's more than just bubble baths and Brene Brown books (but we really love those too). Yoga is not about fixing what is broken in us, but getting closer to loving who we are, as we are, even the bits that are broken and imperfect, without shame. May we NEVER feel like we must apologize for being who we are. These will be interactive weekends to allow you to access the beauty and strength within yourself that everyone else who loves you already sees. Its good work. And we will have so much fun exploring. "The real voyage of discovery lies not in seeking new landscapes, but in seeing with new eyes." Grab your bestie, and let's go. June retreat at Predator is already sold out! Spaces are limited, registration is open!

I guess at some point, I just got tired of apologizing for who I am. The yoga was actually asking me to look for all the things that were wrong, in the pursuit of BEing better. I was too loud, too outspoken, too passionate, too 'strong', too inquisitive, too critical. I have been told to embrace my vulnerabilities, to 'give it up', to simmer down. There have been times when yoga hasn't been kind. Now, to be fair, after fourteen years of practice, I still believe with all my heart that yoga is actually perfect. But it's the interpretation that gets messy. I was once asked by a teacher in an advanced training, in front of a room of other students, when I was going to 'give up the act'. His teachings were filled with inconsistencies and I wanted him to explain. In that moment, I was confused, rejected, humiliated and hot with anger. He looked at me smugly. Was I supposed to give up being who I am to be a ‘good’ yogi? I was so stunned, I said nothing (a very rare occurrence for me). Right after, I had the most powerful experience in yoga nidra. My whole being vibrated with purpose and clarity. I knew the calling. I knew the teaching. Be a stand for strength. Be a stand for confidence. Be a stand for humour and light-heartedness. Be a stand for the goof balls. Be a stand for rubbing against the status quo. Be a stand for believing in something with all your heart. Be a stand for these things that are already in me, so that others could find them in themselves. (I"m actually pretty sure that teacher would say that's not what he was getting at ha, ha). I got up from my practice, I left, and never went back. And promised myself that as a yoga teacher I would never do anything but help people feel better about who they are, and teach them how to be a stand for themselves. Can we stop for moment and celebrate what is GREAT about the person we are? If you were to ask your closest people, 'what is it about me that you love?', what would they say? Can we talk about that? Self-love is more than just facials, bubble baths and stretching our hamstrings friends. Self-love is SELF LOVE! So this year, my retreats are themed All heart, No Filter. And boy do I mean it. This summer, we will dive deep into the essence of who we are and how to bring it with authority, to step into who you are more fiercely than ever. I have been doing this work with organizations for years. Now it's time to do it with all of you. 2019 Retreat dates are up on the website! Registration opens Saturday. Let's Go. ~💛 Shauna http://www.okanaganyogaretreats.com #okanaganyogaretreats #allheartnofilter
All heart, no filter. The theme for my 2019 retreats. Step into who you are more fiercely than ever. We can strive to be better, to do better, when we become deeply connected, and unapologetic, for who we are. Maybe you’ve forgotten who she is, maybe she’s lost her way, maybe your afraid of what others will think of her. Or maybe you know exactly who she is and are ready to let her lead cause she’s f*^%ing awesome. Let’s go. All heart, no filter. Retreat dates are up on the website (link in profile), registration opens this Saturday. I can’t wait. This summer is going to be better than ever. ~Shauna - - - #okanaganyogaretreats #allheartnofilter #letsgo #predatorridge #manteoresort #hoteleldorado #kelownayogaretreats #oyrtribe

One of the best things - spending time with interesting, strong, vulnerable, funny, smart, courageous women.

So grateful you and your Mom joined us last weekend. #okanaganyogi #okanaganyogaretreats #oyrtribe

*for our Okanagan friends, or those planning on being here Aug. 29* I (Shauna) co-founded The Lit from Within Project four years ago because I believe so fundamentally in the power of yoga to help those who are suffering. Like so many, my family has been rocked by the devastation of mental illness and addiction. We wanted to provide service in the capacity we knew how. I'm really proud to say that Lit has been funding weekly yoga and meditation classes for those recovering from addiction and struggling with mental illness ever since. Three classes per week at Canadian Mental Health Association, Kelownaand two classes per week at Foundry Kelowna. Lit pays caring, committed yoga teachers trained to work specifically with these special students, so that they can begin to reconnect with themselves on a deeper level safely and incredibly supported. I am SOOO grateful to the hundreds of yogi's and non-yogi's who have practiced with us at these special events over the years. Without our community, we have nothing. If you are free to give your time and surrender your hamstrings for just a little while on Weds. Aug. 29, I promise you won't regret it. No yoga experience necessary. Just an open mind and a good sense of humour. I am co-teaching with my beautiful friends, Pam Rader (co-founder) and Carol Ann Domanko (Lit teacher) from Shift Power Yoga. Please join us.
