RELEASE: Retreat on Bowen Island

Vancouver - 21 Oct 2022 to 23 Oct 2022
Bettina Rothe

 Join us October 21st – 23rd, 2022 at Nectar Yoga with Bettina Rothe for a 2-night retreat.

With leaves turning golden and falling to the ground in sweet surrender, nights drawing in, and fires being lit, autumn is the perfect time to reflect, let go, and shed the old.

This retreat invites you into a process of transformation to help you release outdated energetic patterns and habits that may have been holding you back in your body, heart and mind. When you create space inside of yourself, something new and more authentic can emerge.

This retreat will take place at Nectar Yoga, a beautiful sanctuary 20 mins off the coast of Vancouver on the ancestral and unceded territory of Nexwlélexwm (Bowen Island, BC). To read more about Nectar Yoga, click here.

On this beautiful land at Nectar, we will listen to the silence, wind, fire and starry skies… calling us home to wholeness and our interconnection with all of life.

Conscious Connection

Closing Ceremony


Meditation, time in nature, creative writing, and the 5Rhythms® movement practice provide the container for our journey into embodiment and connection with our essential nature. The healing maps of 5Rhythms® offer us ways to consciously move from places where we might feel stuck to greater states of freedom and acceptance. They are spiritual practices designed to release the conscious, soulful dancer that lives in every body –regardless of age, experience or condition.


During your retreat, you will enjoy delicious and nourishing plant-based meals curated by our preferred caterer, Chef Erik. All meals are served in our Onyx Lodge at our long table, Family Style.

Erik creates menus that change with the seasons, so you can expect to enjoy a unique dish with every meal. All dietary needs will be honoured and all dishes can be made with vegan and/or gluten free options. Nectar Yoga’s kitchen is a strictly meat + fish free facility.


Whether you choose our cozy, vintage-inspired A-frames, our well-appointed deluxe cottages, or our simple private rooms, the moment you step into your accommodation, you know you’ve entered a safe place to unwind and relax.

Each space is imbued with its namesake stone’s positive vibrational properties and colour accents for support, grounding and attunement to the natural world.

GOOD MEDICINE Autumn Retreat at Stowel Lake Farm with Anne Marie Hogya

Victoria - 17 Nov 2022 to 20 Nov 2022
Anne Marie Hogya

GOOD MEDICINE | A 5Rhythms Autumn Retreat at Stowel Lake Farm with Anne Marie Hogya

Get a dose of (your own) good medicine.

Join me for a long weekend getaway to spectacular Stowel Lake Farm located on Salt Spring Island, BC. Here, we’ll cozy up by the fire, treat our bodies to heart-warming fare, and move together in intimate spaces. Experience growth and community in an unforgettable setting.


Like good medicine,

what if we offer ourselves exquisite care?

What if we learn to make choices that sustain us, groove patterns that honour us, and live lives that become the very remedy we need?

We can.

Let’s summon our deep, wise, life-affirming medicine.
