This yoga retreat will take place at Hedgerow House located in the Ganges, on Salt Spring Island, Canada. The largest of the Gulf Islands, Salt Spring Island is a hotbed of creative talent, inspired by its forested, coastal landscapes. Close to both Vancouver and Victoria, yet miles away from anywhere.
Here you'll find a wealth of artisans ranging from jewelers to potters, clothing designers to woodworkers, sculptors, musicians, and poets. Take the self-guided studio tour to see the artists at work or bring home an original.
Salt Spring Island is known as the organic farming capital of Canada. It’s the source of an incredible variety of fruit and vegetables as well as wineries, apple orchards, a cidery and a craft brewery. You’ll find farm stands of fresh veggies, fruits and even books at every corner, so stop by and pick the freshest produce to take home.
Salt Spring is home to over 300 varieties of apples and if you’re lucky enough to be here in September, why not visit the Apple Festival and sample some apples or cider. You may arrive via ferry or floatplane from Vancouver or Victoria. The closest airport is Victoria. There are three ferry terminals on the island, each served by public bus, which delivers guests to the town of Ganges.
Breakfast is a highlight at Hedgerow House, with ingredients sourced from our organic island and prepared in a flavorful way. We focus on seasonal fruits and vegetables to make nutritious dishes. Our coffee is locally roasted and our teas are locally sourced. You'll have a vegetarian main course and a fruit finish during the retreat.
The Salt Spring Island Saturday market is renowned for its organic nature: good must be 'baked, made, or grown on the island'. Artisans make everything from bread to beads, ceramics to cheese, and farmers bring fresh, healthy vegetables, juices, and fruits.
If you'd like, you can book a range of massage treatments which are offered on-site. You may opt to pamper yourself with express facials, back scrubs to deep tissue massage, salt glow, or pure aromatic massage. The treatments cost ranges from 75 USD to 145 USD. Please let Hedgerow House know the treatments you would like to book before you arrive, to improve the chances of availability and the best timing for you.
We are a short walk from beaches, forests, and mountains, so there is plenty of opportunities to explore. Go on gallery hopping, studio tour, cycling tour, SUP session, book a kayak trip, rent an e-bike, or hop on a bus to add an adventure to your retreat.
