Past Trips

Our Breathe in Life team has twenty years of trip planning under our belt. We started focussing on Yoga and Wellness travel in 2015 and have since led many retreats, trips and teacher trainings in some of the most inspiring places around the world.  We are ready to run them again in these locations but we also have experience in many other places around the world.  Pitch us an idea!
Here is a bit of a resumé of the wellness focussed experiences we have done over the past 5 years to give you an idea of what is possible.

India

The birthplace of yoga is a country that oozes spirituality from every corner.  A place that is on every traveler's bucket list as a must-see.  If you want to have your eyes opened to another way of life that has been around for 1000s of years  then this will satiate all curiosities you may have.

Nicaragua

Central America's secret gem.  It checks all the boxes for a natural, beachy getaway but less touristy and expensive than its well-known neighbor - Costa Rica. All of our Nica retreats are held at Casa Horizon.

Iceland

Our road trips around Iceland are legendary! Sit back and watch this otherworldly landscape pass by as we stop every chance we can to connect with our natural surroundings.  There is plenty of soaking in hot springs, breathing in the pure air, connecting with "the happiest people in the world" and of course making our Instagram accounts envy-worthy! ;) What better way to travel than with a group of friends who take their practice seriously enough to maintain it while away from home?

  • 2016/17/18 – 8-Day Adventure Retreat across Iceland w/ Brea Johnson

Nepal

Be prepared to have your breath taken away...both figuratively and literally! We hit some high altitudes as we travel to some awe-inspiring locales to practice yoga while our souls are filled to the brim with astounding sights, smells, sounds and tastes of course! Come witness mountains that dwarf anything we have in Canada.
There is a very strong spiritual tradition here closely related to the one you find in India - the birthplace of yoga. 

  • 2017/19 – Spirit of Nepal w/ Kat Boehm

Guatemala

We had the most amazing location for our retreat in Guatemala.  In a studio overlooking Lake Atitlán we had the most inspiring views to gaze out at as we practiced. The connection to our planet was profound as we gazed out at volcanoes, a crater lake heated from the earth's core and the abundant flora and fauna of the area. This is a place where many people plan to come for a couple of days and end up staying for months!

  • 2017 – Lake Atitlan - Rewild Retreat w/ Jeff Kirdeikis

Costa Rica

What can be said about Costa Rica that hasn't already been said? The place is popular for good reason. Jungles, animals, insects, great vibes, epic beaches, great surf, great communities. First world health care, no military and a country that uses 98% renewable energy is a country that creates happy people.  We were grateful to go be happy with them. :)

  • 2018 – Puerto Viejo - Yoga Retreat w/ Melissa Jol + Callie Westlake

Croatia

This beautiful coastline makes for a stunning backdrop for any holiday. The laid-back Mediterranean vibes are a perfect place to merge your practice with travel. Delicious, healthy cuisine, warm sunny beaches and crazy cool ancient towns (Game of Thrones anyone?) should put this country on everyone's bucket list.

  • *2018/19 10-day Adventure Yoga Retreat w/ Brea Johnson
  • 2019 - 10-day Adventure Yoga Retreat (Collaboration with First Descents Foundation) w/Melissa Jol

Bali

The retreats you can find in Bali are next level. The artistry and design of their resorts merges stone carvings of Hindu gods with the lush jungle perfectly. There are endless serene locales for perfect meditation spots where it seems it must have been made for humans to be at peace and live in harmony with nature. 

  • 2015 – 20-day Adventure Retreat w/ Afsheen Peyrow
  • 2018 – 14-day Adventure Retreat w/ Kim Wilkinson

Philippines

The Philippines has 7100 islands but all we need is one or two.  The white sand, the turqouise water, the lack of tourist crowds, the FRIENDLIEST people on earth - it's a dream come true. Just go to the Philippines once and you might not ever go anywhere else again! It's seriously so lush. You will be shocked at how much you love this place.

  • 2018 – Siargao Island - 7-day Wild Ambition Immersion Retreat w/ Erin Tetarenko & Christie Baumgartner

Indonesia

Another country made for beach time.  This time with 17508 islands! Besides all the usual tropical, beachy, jungly Asian goodness you find in this part of the world the cultural experiences here are something to behold. With 13% of the world's Islamic population you really get to witness what this great culture has to offer. A deeply spiritual place couldn't be more perfect to immerse yourself in your own practice and reflect on what spirituality means to you.
