Let’s attune ourselves to the shift of the season and spend a long-weekend soaking up September skies. Give yourself some time for movement, meditation, creativity and connective practices with Andrew Bathory and Adam Bolton in Prince Edward County. Get a daily dose of strength training, yoga and meditation. Embrace the transition of the seasons through farm-to-table food and exploring the natural landscapes of the region. The natural beauty of PEC will provide a stunning backdrop for our time together and is easily accessible from Montreal, Toronto or Ottawa. There’s no better time to take in the best of what the County has to offer.
Celebrate the New Year with the MR community in the heart of the Costa Rican jungle. This 7 day retreat is the perfect way to enjoy the holiday – time to slow down, reflect and recalibrate as we head into 2019.
Immerse yourself in the rhythm of the wild jungle as we dive deep into daily movement and meditative practice in a calm, safe, and supportive space to bring you back to a state of balanced health and vitality.
We’ve been dreaming of this one for a while, and we’re so excited to announce that this year we’re heading to Europe! Men’s Retreats will be hosting our first ever European retreat in Lagos, Portugal March 31 – April 6th. Join us for 6 days and nights of movement, meditation and Men’s Retreat magic in our very own private luxury retreat. Picture daily yoga and movement classes by the pool, loads of free time to adventure neighbouring beaches, towns or nearby markets on the Portuguese Coast.
The experience was transcendent—beyond the physical act of practicing yoga. In the first few hours of the retreat it became clear that many of us were looking for a similar experience. A longing to connect to other men in a way that we all too often are not able, or comfortable doing. As the weekend progressed, I saw men, who a day earlier had been complete strangers, sharing intimate thoughts, hopes, and ideas—about their lives, insecurities, and struggles. Supported by a yoga practice that not only expanded our physical bodies, but more importantly our minds.
I wasn’t sure when to expect when I made the choice to do a men’s yoga retreat in Mexico. It took some courage to push myself to spend a week with a group of strangers in a foreign place. At some point, I realized I felt connected to an impressive community of men. I felt safe, supported and more relaxed than I have ever been. I took a leap of faith and it exceeded all my expectations.
Adam, Andrew and Antonio create for their men’s retreat a beautiful, inclusive, safe and powerful environment in which participants are invited to explore their heart, mind and body—and masculinity—in a way that allows for healing to happen, discoveries to be made, and joy and connection to be experienced. Feeling extremely lucky is how one comes out of such a unique and rare brotherly adventure. They earned my respect and get my gratitude.
A meeting place for men of all walks of life to practice and connect more fully to their truth in the support of a mindful community.
