Off-grid does not have to be hard!

Program

Celebrate a disconnect from all that distracts in the day-to-day. Immerse in nature in a unique off-grid experience. This program is designed to support students in an authentic natural learning environment.

The program will be facilitated from Kootenay Yoga School's base camp, deep in the mountainous region of the Kootenay Boundary region. Students will wake to the sounds so playful robins and squirrels, practice under old-growth cedars, study creekside, and unwind by evening campfires under the stars.

The program is designed to follow the following elements:

  • Traditional and modern ethics of yoga
  • Meditation
  • Anatomy
  • Yoga philosophy
  • Business
  • Nutrition
  • Development of authentic practice
  • Asanas

Kootenay Yoga School's base team will be providing you with a prepared and comfortable home camp. They provide the tents / bedding / mattress / supplies. You simply arrive with your personal belongings and your mat / block / strap.

The team will be providing you with three vegetarian meals per day. Meals are designed with your nutrition in mind - healthy, fresh, energy sourced.

Your days will be diverse! It's not all on the mat. It's not all in the books. The program is intended to be immersive and inspiring. You will move, engage in fulfilling discussions, support one another, and celebrate all that nature has to offer - uninterrupted.

What to expect

You can anticipate four classes via Zoom in advance of your arrival. In these Zoom classes, you will cover some of the lessons, to allow you more time together in relaxation while on site.

During the training, you can expect simple meals. All of the meals are made with careful consideration for your nutrition and fueling your body in an energy-sustaining way. You can plan to enjoy plenty of hearty salads, vegetable-rich soups, roasted vegetable medleys, and protein-rich greens.

Fantastic sunny weather! BUT, with that said, there is always the possibility of rain or cool evenings. You will not have access to a laundry service - please pack accordingly. Those who chill easily should pack an extra blanket.

Expect a stunning background to your day. Mountains, green surrounds, creeks in the distance, and peace. The yoga space is natural. Prepare for practicing on a surface that is not as consistently flat as your home studio!

A supportive peer group! And the school appreciates that from you too! Arriving with a sense of adventure and dedication to a remarkable experience is really appreciated. The aim is to form a positive and uplifting learning space out in the forest!

Daily practice of asanas, pranayama, meditation, and by engaging in discussion, debate, and discourses the aim is to go beyond the theoretical and to embody the multidimensional yoga experience.
