Soul-Inspired Rocky Mountain Yoga Retreat

led by David Good & Laura Foster

August 11-16, 2019 in Kootenay Valley, BC

Imagine unrolling out your yoga mat alongside the lake…
Island Lake Lodge is a spectacular lodge nestled in paradise – the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia. Close to Fernie, BC in the Kootenay Valley, this award winning lodge holds the Certificate of Excellence on Trip Advisor.
The serenity of the lake and mountain setting is the perfect backdrop to your deluxe 5-night retreat led by David Good & Laura Foster.
David and Laura are excited about this once-in-a-lifetime retreat experience and have carefully curated the most incredible offerings for you to fully retreat from the busyness of your daily life and allow yourself to be pampered and nourished at the level of your soul.
This program marries David’s inspired approach to nurturing one’s soul through yoga with Laura’s passion for helping others to step into their deepest truth and greatest sense of self through her HeartSpark program.
The seclusion and unparalleled vistas make Island Lake Lodge an incredible place to de-stress, unwind and breathe in the mountain air. In summer, the lodge provides beautiful accommodations with hiking, dining, a spa, mountain biking, canoeing, fly fishing and a spectacular setting for yoga and meditation.
Imagine rolling out your yoga mat alongside the lake or in front of the lodges with a view of the mountains. Experience meditation and quiet mindfulness as we hike through the trails of the property work on designing the life that is deeply aligned with your heart’s desires.
This retreat will allow your heart and head to connect in a way that you may have never experienced before and will leave you feeling grounded, connected and powerful in your being.
What’s Included? 
Along with the extraordinary location and obvious mountain serenity, your retreat includes:
  •  Yoga – 1-2 daily yoga classes led by David Good that will range in style and focus. You do not need to be a seasoned yogi for this program. Each one of David’s classes explores the space between effort and ease and is meant for any individual who shows up on the mat. Morning classes will be vinyasa flow and afternoon classes will range from vinyasa to restorative.
  •  Reiki – Laura will also be offering reiki to compliment David’s yoga classes. Together, they are combining their gifts; energy healing and restorative yoga -a perfect way to end your day.
  •  Daily Soul Inspired Workshops – each day Laura will lead you through a light-hearted process that allows you to dive into the construct of your own life and your own sense of self. In a curious way you will be asking yourself the questions that we often don’t get the time to ask ourselves and creating space for what bubbles up. 
You will find these short workshop sessions are a beautiful integration of what comes forth from 5 full days of yoga, journaling, meditation and soulful awareness. By the end of this retreat you will be able to solidly collaborate all parts of the experience and will leave with a set of habits and a sense of deep knowing that will allow you to continue to cultivate your awareness.
  •  Meals – Daily buffet style breakfast, 4 private lunches and 5 private dinners will be included. Be ready for an incredible farm-to-table dining experience that focuses on local suppliers and fresh produce. The lodge has an extensive and eclectic wine list and creates beautiful pairings between food and wine. Wine or cocktails can be purchased for an additional fee. 
 There are two restaurants and a spectacular patio with an extraordinary view for additional dining experiences. Vegetarian and gluten free options are available. 
  •  Accommodations – 5 nights, either shared or solo options in either the Red Eagle Lodge or Cedar lodge that range from single rooms to quadruple occupancy (see below). Each room has a private bathroom and some also have private decks. Each lodge has an outdoor sauna.
  •  Free time for your own pursuits that may range from exploring, hiking, canoeing, fly fishing, reading, mountain biking or indulging in one of the many spa treatments available. With over 7000 acres of pristine wilderness at Island Lake, there is plenty of space to play … or simply BE.
