About Return to Now Healing & Yoga Retreats

Select from two different weekends

June Retreat is now Saturday & Sunday - 4-5th (Only 2 Spots Remaining!)

or Friday Sept 30-Sunday, Oct 2, 2022

Looking to reconnect with yourself and nature, and find alignment and peace in your life?

Join us for a  unique weekend retreat experience like nothing  you've ever encountered before. It’s time to hit pause and return back to yourself and find presence and beauty in your soul.

This retreat is for anyone who finds themselves in need of a break and a little (or a lot) of self-care. Slow down, reset and refuel your mind, body and spirit and receive healing and awakening that will support you in your journey to finding more joy and peace in your life.

During this weekend you will be offered a blend of yoga, meditation, healing and connection. Not only will you spend the weekend connecting with nature and the Herd, you will also be able to connect back inward - back to yourself. Together we offer you the space and support you need to truly Return to Now. 

Hosted at Spirit's Whisper Ranch in Tillsonburg, Ontario, this nature oasis is nothing short of magical.  What makes this retreat truly unique is the beautiful herd of horses that live at the ranch. Horses help us see and experience the world in an authentic way and provide support to those who choose to connect with them to understand ourselves in new ways and find the truth that lies within. 

Your retreat hosts, Andrea Tesolin (Embracing Zen Wellness Services), Catherine Henry (Inner Peace Warrior) and Melanie Groves (Metamorphosis Healing), are excited and honoured to be supporting and guiding you on your journey.

Don’t miss out on this incredible healing opportunity.
