This summer, do this for yourself, 3 days and 3 nights completely set aside to relax, reflect and adventure. Give yourself permission to leave the choices, decisions, stresses and responsibilities behind for a few days and come out into the wild & wonderful south shore of Nova Scotia for a healing Stand Up Paddle Boarding retreat.

Each day will include a different 2-3hr stand up paddle trip on ocean coves around Sandy Bay, Carter's Beach, Kejimkujik Seaside Adjunct , sleep in rustic but comfy cabins next to the ocean, eat yummy catered food, interspersing yoga, massage, journalling, conversations, hiking and free time throughout the days.
