Join Yoga Instructors, Nigel Wolf & Shéila Bessette, with friends as we commune lakeside of Lac Aylmer, at our lovely and intimate Camp Comfort Retreat Centre in the Eastern Townships; 2.5 hours outside Montreal, 90 minutes from Quebec City and, 50 minutes from Sherbrooke.

During this intensive yet relaxing weekend, participants will be guided through daily morning sessions, of Kundalini & Hatha Yoga in combination with Meditation. Evenings will feature Shamanic Ceremony, including Kirtan, Trance Dance and Guided Journeying. Talking Circles are prominently supported with the practice of these ceremonies. There will also be "free time" for your relaxation, to benefit from nature with daily walks, the curing heat of the wood-burning sauna & the stupendous winter view of Lac Aylmer from the hot tub.

A vegetarian regime will be provided to please the palette & reenergize the body & spirit. Enjoy and learn to prepare delicious macrobiotic meals whilst learning how to make healthier cooked meals that will enrich your daily life.

Over the course of this retreat participants will receive tools and practices which can be incorporated into their lives long after the closing circle, including: Kundalini and Hatha Yoga, Self-Guided Soul Retrieval, Non-Violent Communication and use of the “Four Toltec Agreements” (as taught by Don Miguel Ruiz).

The combination of Shamanic Healing, super-healthy lifestyle practices such as yoga, healthy eating, the sauna, the spa, and the outdoors will all help support your physical and mental detox and cleanse what you've been promising yourself. This is a formula for success!

Your hosts Nigel & Shéila will be available for post-retreat support & follow-up should you have any inquiries, concerns or comments regarding any of the practices learned over the course of the retreat.

Shéila

Shéila is a self-inspired, self-taught student of life. Her yogic wisdom is the result of the many experiences life handed to her through Grace. Life has sent many people & adepts that provided her with the guidance she now shares through living & teaching yoga today.

Her teaching style, following the basics of Hatha Yoga & alignment principles of Anusara, is playful while promoting self-expression through creativity & authenticity. Moreover, Shéila enjoys tuning into her student’s needs & improvising the details of what she will provide in class. At this time, you can be surprised with yoga dance, partner yoga or restorative with massage techniques.

When asked by a fellow yoga adept, “How has yoga been purposeful to you personally and/or as a teacher?” Sheila responds, “I discovered yoga in my mid 20’s after I decided that weight training was not working for me. The physical challenge was worthy, considering I was already buffed up in muscles not quite natural for a woman! In this new found practice, I discovered that my general sense of calm was far superior than I had ever experienced & decided to continue a regular practice of postural & meditative yoga. Throughout the years of practice, I came to realize that yoga was not only a class I attended, it was becoming a way of life. A way of life in which I was flourishing in self-discovery & a broader understanding of a truthful life. It wasn’t long before I felt compelled to teach. In teaching yoga, I was deeply inspired by the vulnerability of my students, and their willingness to share their personal journey within the supported space I provided. In this, the lessons of trust & love were now mine to grasp So, to answer your question… how was yoga been purposeful for me… well, it taught me that there is beauty in this world, I Am beauty & so are You. Let’s live Life in Love, as Yoga teaches Us and co-create all together a community of well-being.”
