Kandra Cassar

Meet Yogi Kay, also known as Kandra, a vibrant presence found on beaches, in sunflower fields, or guiding sessions at her BBY studio. Grateful for who joins her in practice, she aims to infuse every journey with excitement and fulfillment, fostering a community centered on health, wellness, and exceeding expectations.

Yogi Kay’s path to yoga wasn’t straightforward, marked by challenges and revelations. From early experiences with yoga in high school to global travels and professional training, her journey cultivated resilience and a commitment to positivity. Join her in embracing intuition, intention, and the transformative power of yoga, as your journey intertwines with hers.

Lindsay Morris

It was love at first visit when Lindsay arrived at the Edge in 2018. Lindsay is a yoga, barre, and dance teacher who is dedicated to meeting people wherever they are on their wellness journey. Lindsay aims to help guests feel grounded in their bodies and minds, and foster a sense of empowerment and self-discovery.

Lindsay is happiest outside and loves creating special experiences in nature. One of her favourite things about facilitating at the Edge is nurturing a supportive environment where everyone can realize their inner strength and recognize that they are capable of more than they believe. Lindsay lives in Ottawa and works for the federal government, but she loves having a reason to visit Algonquin.

Deposits & Cancellations

Deposits protect our group-based experiences by acting as a commitment from our guests. If you need to cancel your visit, the timing of your cancellation will determine the level of flexibility we can offer in rescheduling your visit or holding your deposit as a credit to be used in the future. Please refer to our full deposit and cancellation policy for more information on our policies, timelines, and the commitments we make based on your registration.

Meals & Dietary Needs

Edge guests are well nourished and experience mealtime itself as a program element, with storytelling to introduce the seasonal flavours of the region and the relationships with the folk who grew and raised the ingredients close to home. Cooking at the Edge focuses on balancing globally far-flung tastes with provincially produced foods. Meals are served buffet style and are guests often enjoy lakeside dining outdoors when the weather allows it.

Over the years we have met many diverse dietary needs. Guests are invited to identify their dietary needs & preferences as a part of the registration process, and those with restrictions love the options we provide.

Itinerary & Program Timings

We offer unique, tailored experiences that flow as our facilitators respond to the interests of our guests, seasonal conditions, and special opportunities that may arise.

Each retreat at the Edge features healthy doses of dreamtime, adventure, community, creativity, time spent in nature, and a dash of surprise. Guests always have the choice to take solo or rest time in lieu of planned experiences.

While a detailed itinerary is not available, you can count on and prepare for the activities used to describe the flavour of this retreat. Meals are generally served at 8:30, 12:30, and 6pm. When appropriate, optional early-morning or late-night experiences may be offered.

Arrival Time & Directions

Arrival time is between 2 – 3 pm with programming beginning at 3:30.  We encourage our guests to arrive on time and stay to experience the full retreat, which generally ends after brunch on the final day. Please let us know if you expect to arrive after 3.

You can find us easily on Google or Apple maps, or view detailed directions here.

What to Bring

We’ll be spending time both indoors and out in nature, and we invite you to dress appropriately for the season to stay comfortable, warm, and dry. There’s no dress code and most guests wear their “retreat-casual”.

We encourage guests to bring a surprise to share with others – this might take the form of a game or activity, an instrument/song/poem, or a tasty treat.

Amazing place to disconnect from the world. From the nature surrounding you, the activities, the equipment, the food and the service. Everything done with love and attention to detail. Been twice and can’t wait to do it again next year!

Claudia A – 2024

It was like coming home to where you belong! I loved that I could experience everything my heart desires, the lake is so special ! The family , the food, wow! If you need to recharge human not android battery this is the place. Also if you have never interacted with hummingbirds, well the gardens bring loads. If I can say anything this connection has made me think life very deeply.

“EVERYTHING WAS OUTSTANDING!!! It is as though the highest quality is your baseline and you try to exceed it. What a magical place filled with special wonderful souls!”
