EAST STUDIO + BLOOM HOLISTIC RETREAT

Friday November 8th - Sunday November 10th, 2024

Bringing JOY into Your Life

EAST Retreat at Bloom Holistic Retreat

The EAST Retreat, led by Caren Cooper-Bridel, will be a chance to explore the difference between JOY and happiness, how we choose JOY yet pursue happiness, and ultimately, how to bring JOY into our lives.

 

EAST STUDIO invites you to a 3-day, 2-night fall retreat at the luxurious BLOOM RETREAT in Ontario, Canada. A chance to immerse yourself in nature, daily movement, breathwork, meditation + workshops. The venue maintains a deep sense of magic, while offering unparalleled comfort + stunning architecture by Siamak Hariri, all of it nestled on 681 acres of biodiverse boreal forest.  The menu is an incredible organic, vegetarian farm-to-table cuisine that will awaken your taste buds.

 

Every inch of the venue was designed with intention and purpose, with floor-to-ceiling windows offering tranquil views from every room, large living room with numerous gathering areas + fireplace, magnificent light-filled studio with all the props + the communal dining room with soaring ceilings.  The grounds include over 25km of forest trails, a sauna, fire-pit, plus a dock for lounging and cold plunges.

 

This women's only Retreat will offer daily mindful practices rooted in JOY including Joyful Flow classes, meditations + breathwork.  There will be 2 break-out workshops; ‘Learning how to Manifest your Future’ and ‘Finding your Life Purpose.’  

 

Plus, a private screening of “Mission: JOY - Finding Happiness in Troubled Times.”  The documentary features the late Archbishop Desmond Tutu and His Holiness Dalai Lama as they discuss their friendship, their pasts and how to live with more joy in the present moment.

 

This Retreat is accessible to all levels of movement enthusiasts with numerous offerings and modifications in each class.  All you need is the desire to connect, laugh and find your personal JOY.

 

Retreat includes accommodation, all food + beverages and 3 days of mindful movement practices + workshops.
