A Nourishing Retreat for Bigger-Bodied Women | South River, ON | 7/1/16 – 7/4/16


Join facilitator Carly Stong in a heart lifting weekend is full of joyful movement, self-care, relaxation, laughter, and fun in the beauty of nature.

Are you yearning to feel at home in a yoga class?  Deepen your connection to your body, exploring the ranges of your ability while honouring your needs.  We will learn to open our hearts to receive inner nourishment, spreading our wings, and rising in our power.

Replenish & Rise Up with:

  • Daily restorative & gentle yoga practices appropriate for all levels
  • A celebration of our bodies, developing a sustainable practice unique to every one of us, exploring possibilities of props & other modifications.
  • Time to re-invigorate in our wood-fired sauna
  • Gentle guided walks, lakeside campfire, stargazing, and creative activities.

We deserve it! In the spirit of loving ourselves, just as we are, we will fly together in this empowering experience.

“I don’t even know where to start about my feelings on Carly’s Yoga for Bigger Bodies. The first word that comes to mind is acceptance.  I do not feel judged, I do not think “I can’t” because I know I can.  If I struggle with something, Carly is quick to help out with different ways to reach the position.  This has challenged me in new ways, and given me a love for something I didn’t realize I would love so much.  I initially wanted to try yoga because so many people I know love it.  But like many other people, I felt intimidated going to a yoga class. I don’t fit the typical mold of those women you see walking down the street with their mats.  When I found out about yoga for bigger bodies, I signed up and I haven’t regretted that decision once.  It gave me the confidence to go into a “regular” class.  I know I can do it.  I may do things slightly different from someone else, but I know I am doing something for myself. If you are thinking maybe you should try it, you absolutely should.  There is no reason to hesitate, no reason to wonder if you will fit it.  You will.  Toss your insecurities aside and do something that your body will love you for.” ~ Heather
