Fresh off of Peterborough Yoga & Wellness Centre’s third retreat at the Edge, here’s what yoga facilitator Monica Holland had to say:
“I have hosted a yoga retreat at Northern Edge for 3 years in a row now. This place is purely magical and the guests absolutely agree. The layout of the center is perfect for yoga, relaxing and exploring. There are various locations you can hold classes and meditations such as; outdoors in front of the main house by the water, the large dock, in the large indoor studio and a smaller indoor studio which is perfect for meditation and discussions.
“The one main rule I follow is “Everything can fall apart, as long as the food provided is exquisite”. Let me tell you Gregor is the most amazing chef! Guests return primarily because the meals he creates are better than any 5 star restaurant. Gregor provides a sensory experience during mealtimes by telling a story, explaining where all the food was sourced from and providing a large variety of items to choose from.
“The other reasons why this is the best retreat center in Ontario are:
- the fire burning sauna by the water,
- a shallow area for swimming,
- standup paddle boards, canoes,
- the newly built stunning log cabin
- and so much more.
“Last but not least, this centre provides you with a co-host. The co-host helps you with absolutely everything from setting up the space before guests arrive, helping your guests to their cabins, starting the sauna, making tea and coffee for guests, using their unique talents to provide activities during free-time (some are experts in wild life, some are experts in water sports and more) helping with clean up etc.… With all these amenities and help provided, as a [facilitator] you will leave the experience feeling refreshed instead of tired and depleted.”
