As Canadians endure continued stressful lifestyles, some individuals are turning to the ancient practice of yoga to regain some perspective. Yoga is defined as “perfect spiritual insight and tranquility” and “a system of exercises that control the body and the mind”. Yoga practices promote physical and mental well being by toning, strengthening and aligning the body while breathing to quiet, clarify and discipline the mind. The following list of inns and resorts offer retreats that combine relaxing yoga techniques with outdoor activities, breathtaking vistas and amazing food.
