Yoga Holidays

DISCOVER

Join me for a weekend of discovery. Brush off the winter. Escape the humdrum. There’s no better way to open yourself up to new opportunities and ideas than to get away from your everyday life. We’ll have good fun, and learn along the way. As the blue lotus flower represents, we’re always learning, always growing. Come away with me. Let’s do it together.

May 17-19, 2019 with the option to stay another night.

Weekend Schedule

Discovery Yoga Class

Breathe. Move. Restore.

Suitable for all levels. If you’re new to yoga, you’ll discover what all the fuss is about. If you’re not-so-new to yoga, you’ll discover new depth to your practice and remember why you fell in love with it in the first place.

Put on your comfy clothes, slippers and settle into our Community Room. Unwind.

Sommelier and author of A Wine Lover’s Guide to Atlantic Canada, yogi and certified yoga teacher Moira Peters, will help us begin our discovery of local wines with a Private Tasting. While testing the goodness that comes from local grapes, we’ll also enjoy local snacks and wood-fired pizza delivered right to our private party. (Sounds a bit like a slumber party for adults, doesn’t it?! Fun!)

After an afternoon of yoga bliss and a lovely evening of discovering new wine, food, and friends, we’ll sleep well on Micro Boutique Living’s plush pillow-top mattress. Mmmmm, good night.

Our next stop is Luckett Vineyards for wine tasting and lunch with amazing views over Blomidon and the Minas Basin. In the afternoon, we’ll visit Gaspereau Vineyards, “the heart of Nova Scotia wine”, for a private tasting. Barrelling Tide Distillery is next on our adventure. There we’ll have a cellar tour to learn the process behind making spirits and taste their spirits and fruit liqueurs. We’ll finish at Annapolis Cider for a flight of ciders, and return back to Micro Boutique by 4:00.

Q & A

Q

Will I need to arrange for my own travel to Wolfville?

A

Yes. If you are travelling from Halifax, you can travel by car to Wolfville within an hour. Travel from Hubbards and Chester to Wolfville is about the same amount of time. If you are joining us from out of province or outside of Canada, search for flights to and from Halifax. I suggest renting a car to travel the short distance to Wolfville. There is underground parking at Micro Boutique Living.

Yes! And, you’re very welcome to join us for a special “stay-cation”. Contact me for your special pricing.

Q

Will I need a passport?

A

You will need a passport if you are joining us from outside of Canada.


Q

I am planning on coming alone, but I’d rather not pay for single occupancy – can you find me a roommate?

A

Yes, sure, I can try to match you up with someone. Remember, these rooms are limited so please book as soon as possible.


Q

I want to bring along a friend or family member who doesn’t practice yoga. Is that possible?

AYes, but try to convince them to give yoga a try! The cost for the weekend without yoga is only a small amount of the total cost. Contact me for the price.
