Introducing Loon Lake Lodge & Retreat's Wellness Services
Loon Lake Lodge and Retreat Centre is excited to announce that we've teamed up with wellness practitioners from across the Lower Mainland to offer a diversity of services for your next retreat.

OUR WELLNESS MENU
Flow: A dynamic style of Yoga in which you will build heat, endurance, flexibility and strength.
Hatha Yoga: This class will focus on the collective practice of Yoga. Yoga asanas (postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises) help bring physical and mental balance to the body.
Yin Yoga: The Yin class provides a deep stretch primarily focusing on ligaments and connective tissues. Yin Yoga is an excellent choice for athletes as it helps open the hips, pelvis and lower spine. The class ends with the soothing and nourishing supported poses of restorative relaxation (can remove if needed).
Restorative Yoga: A soothing and nurturing practice that promotes many health benefits, such as: relaxation, lowered heart rate, lowered blood pressure, and improved sleep.
Partner Yoga: You and your partner will be guided through fundamental poses and transitions that will de-stress and decompress the body, while challenging you on your communication skills. All classes include stretching, strengthening, and flying techniques that have tremendous healing and therapeutic benefits.
Kids Yoga: Kids yoga will promote kids' balance, concentration, flexibility, and strength. These skills complement other extracurricular activities, such as: soccer, hockey, football, dance, and gymnastics. Classes will engage kids in individual, partner, and group settings with fun interactive games. The principle behind kids yoga is to build self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-awareness through playful movement.
Stand-up paddle boarding: Stand-Up Paddleboarding and Yoga are combined to teach breathing, movement, and balance, while enjoying the lake and surrounding forest.
Meditation: Explore a gentle, guided meditation in a calm and comfortable setting. Inspire the mind, ground the body, and deepen your self-connection.
Reiki & Healing Touch: Reiki is a non-invasive form of energy work that can be channeled through a practitioner's hands to the recipient. Touches on body’s meridian lines help release tension and built-up energy. The body physically stores emotions, such as: stress, anxiety, grief, trauma, and memories. Left unresolved, these emotions can cause stagnations and blockages in the energy centres of the individual.
Holistic Counselling: One-one-one or groups sessions will help examine the connection of thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations that are felt in the body. Holistic modalities include breathing work, guided relaxation, visualization, life coaching, body-mind balancing, and aromatherapy.
Aromatherapy: Learn about true aromatherapy and safe use of pure, genuine, and authentic essential oils.
