You will be accommodated in a cabin which is part of Sugar Ridge Retreat Centre. There are ten cabins for accommodation nestled into the lush beauty and quiet of natural surroundings, allowing you to get out of the mindset of your everyday life. The cabins are intentionally simple, yet comfortable. Beds are comfy and duvets are snuggly. Each has lots of natural light, electricity, and heater for the cooler weather.

Yoga Grove Holiday Canada Program

Throughout your stay, enjoy sumptuous vegetarian meals that will help you feel deeply nourished and energized. You may wish to go cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or hiking the many trails through the wilderness surrounding the facility, or simply sit by the cozy fire with a good book. Yoga Grove will be offering daily meditation classes, Gentle yoga classes, workshops on yoga philosophy and Restorative yoga, and Yoga Grove's signature Restorative yoga with massage class, so you can choose to do as little or as much as you like.

Highly extolled by past participants, this Restorative yoga with massage class is the ultimate in relaxation. Enjoy soothing music, essential oils, and massage while you are draped in cotton blankets and relaxing deeply in fully supported restorative yoga poses. This class will be done at separate times in small groups, ensuring maximum personal attention for everyone.

Retreat location

Sugar Ridge Retreat Centre was created to provide a place for people to reconnect with a part of themselves that may be neglected or hidden, to connect with others, or just get away and have some fun! Located on 150 acres of majestic maple and cedar forests, lush meadows, and surrounded by 3000 acres of provincial land, you can breathe fresh air, sleep deeply, and feel revitalized just by being here. There are 20 kilometers of trails accessible from the property for hiking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing, so you can explore for hours in the serenity of the snow-covered wilderness.
