More than ever, taking a break from the frenetic pace of a busy lifestyle feels essential. While time off from an everyday routine is much warranted, a purposeful getaway such as a retreat gives you time to immerse yourself in an experience where you take home more than just a few days off. This summer, Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is launching an exciting new selection of retreats to get you inspired, invigorated, and embolden you to champion healthy intentions.
Art For Art’s Sake
The striking beauty of Lake Louise makes the location an ideal muse for artists of any age or skill. This summer, guests can channel their inner Monet with the Mindful Painting retreat lead by Mindy Johnstone – an artist and yoga teacher for over 20 years. The retreat is a two-day exploration of the connection between nature and creation as inspiring artists delve into acrylic, watercolour, pen, and ink mediums to capture their surroundings. The en plein air (outdoor) sessions are intended to nourish the imagination and soul while learning to create visual journals of travel experiences. Yoga and meditative practices are incorporated into the flow of the retreat allowing guests, from beginner to advanced, to enhance inspired thinking and ease into the creative process. The Mindful Painting retreat is available August 13-15, 2021, and September 24-26, 2021.
