Tim Lucier

The son of Northern Edge Algonquin co-founders Todd and Martha, Tim has played witness to the evolutions of our centre from the very beginning. As our Director of Operations, Tim leads our coordinator team to develop and co-create retreat programming, promote the Edge to retreat visitors and custom groups, organize spaces, logistics, and systems. He uses his passion for efficiency and simplicity to help us minimize, streamline, and work towards continuous improvement in all areas at the Edge.

Tim lives, works, and plays at Northern Edge Algonquin (his “home base” in Canada), but as an avid traveler and an advocate for transforming work-life balance, he generally takes a couple months each year to work remotely from Athens, Greece. Tim also nourishes his own growth through Greek language lessons, music and theatre performance, and his handstand & inversion practice.

As a facilitator & leader, Tim invites guests to live simply, dream big, and explore with curiosity. He draws on a variety of training and experience including a comprehensive education in yoga & movement facilitation, certification as one of Marie Kondo’s Konmari Consultants, participation and leadership in our Heart-Centered Circle Leadership, Experiential Tourism, and Transformational Leadership trainings, past work in the youth travel industry, and a lifetime of mentorship with transformational Edge facilitators Todd and Martha.

Tim’s love of movement began with dance, and has since grown to encompass a handstand & arm-balancing practice, yoga, cycling, swimming, cross-country skiing, calisthenics, stand-up paddleboarding, and cross fitness. As someone who pushes his body to it’s “edge”, Tim has a deep appreciation for safe movement, mobility, breath, and recovery to allow our bodies to keep doing what they do best.

A lifelong-learner, Tim is committed to his own personal growth, nourishing his passions and sharing what he has learned with others. In his pursuit of personal fitness and vitality, Tim found inspiration in the work and writings of Charles Duhigg and James Clear who share about the science of habits and how to change them. In his minimalism journey he resonated strongly with the philosophy of Marie Kondo and learned to embraced the value of intuitive decision-making. Tim’s truly passionate about habit development and minimalism, lenses through which he loves to coach and facilitate.
