The Hosts

 Lindsay Keefe, Certified Yoga Therapist 

Ruth Strunz, Registered Psychotherapist


As a psychotherapist and yoga therapist we recognize the need for mental health professionals to intentionally reserve space and time to take care of our mental health and well-being. Bringing together our skillsets and with the calming environment of Howe Island Yurt, we have carefully curated a day for you to unwind, reflect and recharge, and recommit to taking really good care of yourself amongst a small group of likeminded people.


Gathering in the Yurt, we will settle into a guided reflective practice, followed by a restorative yoga class, based in the theory and practice of yoga therapy. Lunch will be shared outside (weather permitting), after which we will engage in creative, connective, contemplative or movement-based activities. Our afternoon guided session will refresh our commitment to our own mental health; each of us will generate an individualized personal retreat plan to carry forward. Our day closes with yoga Nidra, a deeply relaxing guided practice, after which you may wish to explore the natural beauty of Howe Island, or head into Gananoque or Kingston for dinner.


Please wear comfortable clothes. Space is limited to 8 participants.
