The Vino & Vinyasa Retreat is a luxurious weekend getaway in the sun-drenched Okanagan complete with modern and SPACIOUS accommodations, the finest local wine, juicy and detoxifying yoga classes, and farm-to-table meals.
Throughout the retreat we encourage self-care, self-love, laughing, stopping the glorification of "busy", and finding pure bliss by learning to live in the moment. Through curated yoga practices, guided conversations and hand-picked wine and food tasting experiences, our guests leave the weekend feeling like they've just had a week-long vacation; they are refreshed, calmed, nourished, inspired, and recharged. Vino & Vinyasas are ideal for anyone looking to remember how to be present, anyone who wants to pause their busy lifestyle and reflect on the beauty of this life, and for anyone who wants to to relax in an environment where all the details are taken care of. We encourage people of all yoga backgrounds to attend. A passion for wine, however, is a must:)
Hi! I'm Laura Martini and I've been leading these retreats for 6 years now. I believe in the power of yoga and self-devlopment like nobody's business which is why I commit to making every retreat better than the last (and I've hosted over 40!). I'm passionate about authenticity, acceptance, and meeting new people. I love facilitating these retreats and sharing my crush on the Okanagan (I was born and raised here; my great-great-grandfather was the first mayor of Kelowna!). And the wine here is second to none which is why The Huffington Post voted the Okanagan Valley as the #1 wine destination in the world! Join me in 2017 for a retreat your friends will be ridiculously jealous to hear about:)
