Yoga retreats offer you the perfect opportunity to combine your love of movement and mindfulness with adventure and fun.
I love yoga, movement, meditation and travel – these are my greatest passions and having the opportunity to combine them in a single offering gives me a great deal of joy.
I offer both local and international retreats and do my best to combine plenty of fun activities balanced with time to unwind and recharge. All of my international retreats offer a variety of experiences designed to allow participants to connect deeply to new cultures, new friends and most importantly to themselves.
If any of my offerings call to you, please do contact me in order to reserve your spot.

Take a few days this spring to recharge your battery, to connect with an amazing group of women and to nurture yourself so that you can show up more fully for the people and things that matter most in your life.
Imagine waking up each morning to the sound of the ocean waves right outside your door.

What Are People Saying?
My trip to India with Karen was a special life experience I will cherish always. The trip was well researched and planned, with helpful, patient pre-travel guidance and support. Once in India, the hotels were lovely, the itinerary was well structured yet with time to wander or reflect, experiences ranged from prestigious monuments and temples to a grass roots village and a local cooking/yoga class, Indian guides were warm, knowledgeable, and responsive, Karen and Jackee led us confidently, navigating unforeseen issues with skill and grace.
India itself should be on your bucket list if it is not already (it was not on mine). India is an incredible place of rich culture and history, intense colour, sounds, smells, and energy. Its people are warm, beautiful, and inspiring, easy to talk to and curious about visitors to their homeland. The skill of artisans and craftspeople is impressive, as is their humility. India is a world of complex cultural intricacies, and it is a society admirably struggling to evolve amid harsh life realities that can be heartbreaking to witness.
I loved everything about India. It is an emotional and spiritual journey like no other, and I highly recommend you veer off your normal path and let Karen lead you on your own adventure of self-discovery in India.
“This was the most amazing experience that I needed so bad, but didn’t realize it. Thanks so much for hosting.
“I have the honour of sharing a number of experiences with Karen. We met at a Bhakti yoga retreat where we were both participants. She was so friendly and down to earth I couldn’t help but become friends with her! I followed her on social media and when she began offering Facial Stretch sessions I was IN! I drive from Mississauga to her studio for the sessions and my body is always overjoyed to receive those!
Last year I was lucky to be able to go on an adventure with her to INDIA!! When travelling that far and that long you better believe in your leaders and Karen was phenomenal! She was detail-oriented and thorough with all the plans, hotels, and travel arrangements. She was caring and authentic while guiding us through our morning yoga and held space for us however our souls showed up.
Karen is fun loving, adventurous and lovable. I would follow her anywhere and highly recommend following your heart’s desire with any one (or all!) of Karen’s offerings”
