Yoga

Enjoy a Peaceful, Detoxifying Environment

We would love to have you host your yoga retreat at The Muskoka Rose, a peaceful, detoxifying environment where you can deepen your students’ yoga practice, focus on nutritional values and healthy cooking practices, cleanse and relax. With many options including yoga on the dock, rock sitting, SUP on a private lake, or sitting in one of the terraced yards, surrounded by gardens. The Muskoka Rose is an ideal place to bring people together to celebrate nature, nature healing, and heightened consciousness. More importantly, the property sits on one solid piece of granite, which is the iconic rock of the famous Canadian Shield. Our granite has Quartz ribbons that run through our entire property. Quartz has been called the “Universal Crystal” because of its many uses; enhancing energy by absorbing, storing, amplifying, balancing, and transmitting. This makes the property ideally special for yoga due to Quartz’s ability to energize the environment.
