Yoga retreats to restore and heal you. Read Island is a family owned  Eco centre where we have been hosting retreats for over 20 years. We believe in a strong practice starting at 7 am with pranayama, Qi Kung and meditation followed by a nourishing breakfast.   (read more)After breakfast we have a 2 hour yoga practice followed by lunch on the deck with a gorgeous mountain view. Free time after lunch for rest, hiking, swimming or kayaking touring our very magical property. Later we have a qi king/ tai chi class and restorative yoga. After a dinner from local ingredients salmon, garden salad, new potatoes we learn shiatsu and  acupressure neck massage.Friendly gentle teaching techniques with a sense of lightness and fun make this a memorable experience. Care is taken to create a suitable practice to take home.We look forward to having you share our home and enjoying our healing natural ambiance.

 GETTING to READ Island From Vancouver:Take the ferry from Horseshoe Bay to Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. Drive north on the Island Highway 1 about two hours until you get to Campbell River. Stay to the right to the Quadra Island ferry terminal. The ferries generally run on the half hour, so you will have to be on the 2: 30 PM or the 3:30 PM ferry to make the connection. When you get off the ferry, follow the signs to Heriot Bay and turn left on Cramer Road and right on Antler Road to the Heriot Bay government wharf. A stop at the local store for last minute goodies is always fun! Your boat will pick you up at the government wharf in Heriot Bay and bring you back from Read Island at the end of the retreat.  Be prepared for summer overloads and get to the ferry terminal at least 30 minutes before departure time.
