We live in exciting times where there is an up swell of information. Riding this wave of knowledge, we see yoga practice undergo both a renaissance and an evolution. Naturally, with a flowering of techniques, it can be confusing to find material that is relevant to our lives.

This four night, immersive retreat, is a long-running perennial favourite at Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and is known for being intelligent, physical, intriguing and fun! Much like Jeff’s own yoga practice, the content of Yogic Explorations steadily evolves to meet the needs of the modern yoga student. Drawing from numerous inspirations, this retreat is marked by sound physical movement, breathwork, meditation and profound physical experiences. In addition, Jeff will be offering cold plunges to those who would like to further reveal their capacity within the iconic waters of Lake Louise. Please come with an open mind and be prepared to work hard, laugh and reveal your true capacity.
