Yoga, SUP and Swim Glamping Retreat

About the Experience

Picture a weekend of escape to Harmony Outdoor Inn, a unique B&B and Glamping waterfront resort in a secluded woodland setting in Parry Sound, Ontario: a weekend of stand-up paddleboarding, yoga, mermaid tails and meditation.  Can you visualize the beauty? Can you taste the delicious food? Can you imagine the bliss?

Arrive on a Thursday evening to a delicious waterfront wine and cheese reception as you meet your fellow wild women and enjoy your first sunset together gathered by the fire.

Each morning, enjoy a blissful session of sunrise yoga on the beachfront deck. Your guides for the weekend are certified stand-up paddleboard coaches as well as certified yoga instructors so you are in good hands. You will spend your mornings out on the water, enjoying SUP-ing and swimming. We have an extra treat for you on these weekends; Holly is a certified Mermaid and is bringing her mermaid tails for you to experience. She’ll also take an amazing mermaid photo for everyone to remember her time as a mermaid.

Your afternoons will be enjoyed in the pavilion out of the sun or if you like, in the shade of the trees, swinging in a hammock. Every afternoon, you will have the opportunity to take part in creativity sessions such as nature-inspired art, jewellery making, and aromatherapy all natural facials. We always like to include a session where we make personal mala beads. Your mala beads can be used for meditation and they are also a funky piece of jewellery. In the evening, you can use your malas to meditate with a guided session under the stars.

Enjoy scrumptious gourmet meals in an outdoor dining pavilion nestled amongst the trees, sharing stories and laughing and dancing the night away or swimming under the stars. And finally, when sleepiness overcomes your body, you’ll take a forest path to your luxurious glamping tent or inside B&B room, where you can snuggle into your comfy hand-made bed and sleep the night away.

Day after day, morning to night, this is the weekend adventure you’ve been imagining in your dreams!

Day 1: MEET AND GREET

Arrive at the Harmony Outdoor Inn Thursday, after 4pm. You’ll be greeted and shown to your tent or B&B room by one of the staff at Harmony. You can take this time to settle in, head into town for a bite, go for a short hike, enjoy a swim or swing in a hammock. Meet at the waterfront deck at 7:30 to enjoy a meet and greet with your retreat leaders and fellow wild women over wine and cheese, tea and dessert.

Day 2-3: STAND UP PADDLING AND YOGA!

Every day begins with a blissful morning yoga session then after breakfast, you will be Stand-Up Paddling!  SUP is a fun, easy way to play on the water. Standing like you would on a surfboard but with a paddle, it gives you a fresh perspective, lets you look right down into the water, and feels like you’re walking on the surface. The upright position provides a full body workout, while the width of the board makes it easy to balance.  Working with certified instructors, you will have the opportunity to learn the best paddling techniques to enjoy this ever growing sport. Our coaches have worked with women of all ages, sizes and capabilities. It’s a paddling sport available to all, you just have to give it a try!

After spending some time getting comfortable on your paddle board, you will have the opportunity to take it to the next level and try out the fun challenge of SUP yoga!  On day two your instructors will gently guide you through several yoga poses on the paddle board – a wonderful way improve your balance and strengthen core muscles.

Have you ever dreamt of being a mermaid?  Well, now your dreams can come true!  Over the weekend, you will also have the opportunity to ‘grow’ a colourful mermaid tail and swim like one too! The photo op is so much fun, everyone looks beautiful in a mermaid tail.

And the fun isn’t over yet!  In the afternoons, you will have the opportunity to take part in a creativity session and try an all-natural facial.

You’ll finish the day with a feast in the pavilion followed by an evening of whatever you would like. Perhaps a star light guided meditation floating on the dock, or a night time swim followed by a campfire with new friends or a late night dance party in the pavilion!

Day 4: ADVENTURE DAY

Today, you’ll venture out on a SUP adventure!  Your leaders will take you on a short day trip to explore the beautiful shores of the area where you can try out the new techniques you’ve learned over the past couple of days.

Head back to basecamp in time for an early afternoon lunch, and feel free to relax in the shade or on the beach for a couple of hours before heading home energized and refreshed from the weekend’s rewards.
