Annual Retreat at Northumberland Heights - this year is the last one!


Northumberland scenery

with Patricia White and Darcie Clark

Friday, October 14 – Sunday, October 16, 2016

Northumberland Heights sits on 80 acres of forested trails in the hills north of Cobourg overlooking Lake Ontario. Next Spring, they're undergoing renovations to become an Ayurvedic Spa, so this year will be our last yoga retreat with them!

There will be ample leisure time to hike in the woods, sit by the pond or take a short 10 minute drive into the quaint town of Cobourg. Accommodations are in recently renovated bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. The yoga studio has wood floors and a wall of windows with a view of the lush natural setting.
Delicious meals with vegetarian or meat options will be prepared by an experienced chef and served in the dining room. If you have dietary needs please let us know in advance.

Bring your own yoga mat. Some props will be provided, however bring a bolster, block, and strap if you have them.

“I had the pleasure of attending the fall Northumberland retreat multiple times. Each time included a weekend of yoga, deep relaxation and opportunity for personal reflection. What I enjoyed most: the early morning group meditation walks along the forest trails; and the delicious meals and superb service.” – Lara
