Vino & Vinyasa 2016

Welcome to a yoga retreat company that believes life should never be taken too seriously.  We believe in self-care, self-love, laughing, stopping the glorification of "busy", and finding pure bliss by learning to live in the moment.  We also believe that nothing follows a yoga class better than a glass of Riesling!  Let's be real; life can be challenging and sometimes it's important to take care of yourself so you can better take care of the people around you!  This spring, summer, or fall, indulge in a luxurious weekend getaway in the sun-drenched Okanagan Valley.  Enjoy modern and spacious accommodations, the finest wine, detoxifying yoga classes, and gourmet food.  oh and I have been leading these retreats now for 5 years; No detail has been overlooked.  Lots of Love and Namastes, Laura
