    Accommodations are at the Watermark Beach Resort where you will be able to replenish yourself in the definition of hotel luxury in a place where attention to detail can be found everywhere you look. Let your stress dissolve away as you softly flow through the intricate textures of the hotel itself. Experience the geography outside first hand as the wavy sand rolls from the soft beaches dance their way indoors making their way across the wall behind the main desk. Touch the wallpaper leading to your room and feel the elaborate contours of the surrounding hills, guiding you to your luxury suite where you will find the perfect match of form and function as plush designs wrap themselves around you, providing you the ultimate sense of relaxation that you deserve. There are a total of 123 luxurious suites in the main building.

    This retreat will begin on the Friday afternoon or evening and end on the Sunday morning, afternoon, or evening at your leisure. The first Flow yoga class is at 16:00 on Friday afternoon. The Bliss night yoga classes are at 21:30 on Friday and Saturday evenings. There will be two morning Hatha yoga classes on Saturday and Sunday mornings at 08:00. Come to as many or as few classes as you wish to attend.

    The two morning outdoor Hatha yoga classes and the outdoor Flow yoga class will be overlooking the lake. Please note that these outdoor classes are weather dependent and may take place indoors. The Bliss night yoga classes will be indoors. Both of the Bliss yoga classes include foot and shoulder massages.

    Hatha yoga

    Hatha yoga consists of classic yoga postures that move with your breath to help you reduce stress and increase strength and flexibility. These classes are approximately 50% stretching poses and 50% strengthening and toning poses, all combined with proper breathing and grounding techniques.

    Flow yoga

    In this flowing yoga class, strength, flexibility, and stamina are all emphasized. This style of yoga combines Power yoga and strong Hatha yoga flows and postures. It will feel great to move the body through sun salutations and various combinations of poses to stretch out the body after the drive to Osoyoos.

    Bliss night yoga

    This retreat includes a late evening one-hour yoga class of Gentle, Yin, and Restorative yoga combined with foot, back, and shoulder massages. Sunny will be guiding you through these relaxing yoga classes to help you become very calm and de-stress. Tea and cookies will be served after the class.

Whether it is a climb through the mountains, a peaceful walk along the canal, river, or orchards surrounding the valley, there is a path that suites every age and every skill level. For any exploration of the area, be mindful that there are natural hazards in an outdoor environment, so be cautious and know your limitations.

    Okanagan Falls

    Located on the southern end of Skaha Lake in the Okanagan Valley, and known locally as OK Falls, the little community of Okanagan Falls was originally known as Dogtown, from the Okanagan First Nations word Skaha, meaning dog, after which the nearby Skaha Lake was named. Okanagan Falls was named after small twin waterfalls that were once part of a scenic natural landscape located at the southern end of Skaha Lake where it emptied into the Okanagan River.

    The falls were reduced to a series of gentle rapids in the 1950s with the construction of a flood control dam to control the level of water flowing south in the Okanagan River. Okanagan Falls is a charming little town best visited for its tasty pleasures. It is home to the largest ice-cream cone seller in the valley, Tickleberrys, and two prestigious wineries, Wild Goose Vineyards and Hawthorne Mountain Vineyards (formerly LeComte Estate Winery). The community of Okanagan Falls was founded on agriculture, and today provides fresh fruits and vegetables, delicious dried fruits, and award winning wines.

    Spotted Lake

    Known as Kliluk to the Indian Band, this lake is sacred and can easily be viewed from highway 3, only eight kilometers west of Osoyoos. Each of the 365 rings is believed to have a different healing power. The Spotted Lake has one of the worlds highest concentration of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and sodium sulphates. In the summer heat, the lake dries out, forming colorful mud circles.

    Wine tour

    The South Okanagan wine region stretches across mountains, sage, lakes, and creeks and is the optimal terrain for wine making. The scenic vistas are remarkable and the area wineries have been able to utilize the landscape to their advantage to create award-winning wines and winery experiences set against panoramic views.

    The region is home to many thriving, world-class wineries of all sizes with many that have been passed down through generations. Wine making in the South Okanagan is a way of life. Wine tasting in the South Okanagan is an unforgettable experience not to be missed. The wineries are dedicated to providing an unsurpassed winery and dining experience.

      "Every activity was well organized and the instructors knowledge of Osoyoos and the wine was perfect. Watermark was a very nice resort and right in front of the beach. The yoga classes and massages were very satisfying. The best part of the retreat was the people who joined. We connected so easily and had so much fun together. I felt every moment of the trip was so precious, even hiking was very breathtaking. I was glad you took us there. If I was by myself, I wouldnt have known about the spectacular lookouts."
