Join Andrea Clark, yoga instructor & owner of Nectar Yoga B&B for a weekend on beautiful Bowen Island. This inspiring retreat will be filled with yoga, meditation, nature, freshly prepared juices, smoothies and warming soups all designed to detox your body and enhance your personal health and wellbeing.
This retreat is located at Nectar Yoga B&B on 1.3 acres of lush forest, just steps from the ocean. A place where you can breathe deeply, sleep soundly and feel revitalized by the abundance of surrounding nature.
A weekend with Andrea will offer you a chance to reboot, detox your body and mind, and will introduce you to new techniques, information and skills that will create positive change in your life. This retreat is a blend of yoga, mediation, delicious organic food, trail exploration, reading, dreaming and conversations by the campfire.
Leave behind the usual distractions of life and arrive in a space of nourishment, movement, self-reflection and discovery. Reconnect with your internal happiness.
YOGA & MEDITATION
Wake up to the sounds and smells of Bowen Island’s flora & fauna while practicing your daily guided meditation in our yoga dome. Breathe in the fresh air during your yoga asana and pranayama (yogic breathing) class. Whether you are an experienced yoga practitioner or blossoming into your practice, you will learn to move with awareness, strength and balance. Your two daily yoga asana classes will be catered to your specific body needs and focus on supporting your detoxification.
Reconnect to your health through food and learn to embrace your own inner healer. Informative talks followed by guided discussions will be held daily. You will go home with tasty usable advice to grow healthy habits in your own home and community.
Detox, cleanse and eat your way to more vibrant health. The liquid based menu during your 3 day retreat is designed to help flush out your systems for brighter skin, more energy, removal of waste and possibly some weight. The juices, smoothies and soups are made from all organic, fresh foods. We will begin the detox weekend with a light transition meal that will focus on healthy veggies and warming broths. This initial meal will ease you into the weekend cleanse.

My life has been a true reflection of my intention. I know through first-hand experience that you build the life you desire, you are the master and creator of your destiny. Yoga has unfolded this understanding to me, yoga is my way of life, this is the yoga I share with others.
I have had the privilege of studying the yogic path within many lineages and traditions around the globe. My teaching style is an infusion of mindful alignment and intentional breath. I want to share the understanding of space with my students. When we tap into the space that exists, all physical movement is accessible and all mental tension is dissolved.
Yoga has taken me around the globe where I teach Exotic Retreats, Raw Detoxes, Asana, Meditation, Pranayama, Mat Pilates, and where I own Nectar Yoga B&B on Bowen Island.
We will have guest Nutritionists and Holistic Chefs for each retreat. Details to come.
