at Shobac Property, Nova Scotia, Canada
led by Kumi Sawyers and Alex Sharry

Ocean, open fields, a yoga barn, delicious food, picturesque town, incredible yoga, natural dye workshops and gorgeous living. SKY TING is pleased to bring our students on a most incredible week of retreat to the beautiful lands of Nova Scotia. We’ve rented a number of houses on the Shobac Property outside Halifax that integrates modern design with its natural environment.

Join Kumi Sawyers and Alex Sharry, who will guide you deep into your yoga practice. Our dear friend and favorite chef Lauren Gerrie will be creating healthy, nourishing meals, served outside at large communal tables on the property. Beyond yoga, there will be plenty of opportunities to explore: day trips to local vineyards, beach days and surf lessons down the shore, exploring UNESCO World Heritage Site (and charming town) Lunenburg nearby…Kalen Kaminski from Upstate will be leading a natural dye workshop, so you can bring home some special goodies.

This retreat center is very much communal living. The houses are designed with open layouts, many of the rooms being lofted above the living spaces. Bathrooms in the houses will be shared between the guests of the house. If you have a group of friends interested in all being in the same house, we can definitely try and accommodate you as best you can. To get a better feel for each individual house on the property, explore: under “rentals."
