Location, Nectar Yoga

Nectar Yoga Retreat sits on 20 acres of forested land on Nexwlélexwm (Bowen Island), the ancestral and unceded territory of the Squamish Nation. Nestled in the Howe Sound, this small island has a big heart.  

Nectar Yoga Retreat is a proud steward of this land, and the land they occupy has consciously been mainly left untouched.  The Nectar Yoga Experience is a link back to your inner self and nature—a space to dream. A womb to deeply relax.
