a Yoga & Breathwork Retreat

A transformative experience at a luxurious lakefront retreat centre,

nestled amidst 6 acres of breathtaking forested mountains. 


We are excited to invite you to The Sentinel, where we will invoke the power of the elements, through specifically themed yoga classes and breathwork, to light the path toward your true self. With daily morning and evening practices, 3 nourishing meals a day, one afternoon workshop and so many relaxing amenities we will have the perfect combination to guide you back to your innate rhythm.


Prepare for an engaging journey for all the senses--waking each morning to expansive lake views, a beautiful walk to the sacred wood-framed Maloca will bring you grounding and presence as we gather to move together each morning. The theme of each class will be a specific element, teaching us how to embody and embrace it's power.

Within this harmonious tapestry, we find our place, woven into the intricate fabric of life. As we reconnect with the elements of nature expect to experience a recalibration of your nervous system. Then a remembering of the essence of who you truly are... the Sacred Elements of life itself.

The retreat begins with a heartwarming welcome ceremony, to co-create the container (coming into sangha); where you will be invited to set your intentions and contribute to the sacred altar. 


Our thoughtfully crafted schedule ensures ample time for you to explore the elements, have a forest adventure, or partake in water activities to leave you feeling invigorated and restored.


Indulge in ultimate relaxation with your choice of a cedar sauna or a lake-view hot tub, complemented by a cold plunge in an ornate copper tub. For even more rejuvenation, a short drive away, you'll find the renowned Ainsworth Hot Springs and cave

—a natural treasure.


The wonders don't end there—We encourage you to unleash your potential for deeper healing by opting for bodywork sessions such as acupuncture or massage, or embark on a deep energetic and physical cleanse with spirit medicine from the Amazon, Kambo.


With an array of exceptional amenities and offerings, we assure you that your stay at The Sentinel will leave you feeling beyond refreshed and revitalized, ready to embrace life with renewed vigour.
