Houseboat Yoga Retreat

Fri, 06/14/2019 to Mon, 06/17/2019

If you have not had the chance to go on a houseboat before, - this might be exactly what you were waiting for. If you have been on a houseboat before, you will understand that this offering makes your houseboat vacation an extra treat. Take yourself and a friend or your partner and yourself on a 3 day/3 Night All Inclusive Floating Wellness Trip.

We are all human. We are all busy. But sometimes we just need to pause, observe, check in, take a deep long breath, and reset. This is what the Relax & Rejuvenate retreat offers you. Time for you, time for you to pause, to reflect, to rest, to fill up your bucket and to go back into the world feeling nourished, more inspired, more balanced and more energized. During the Relax & Rejuvenate Retreat, everything is taken care of by your hosts Nicole and Pascal Albisser.

Pascal has been passionate about food and cooking ever since he learned beside is Grandma in Italy. He loves to entertain and create a relaxing and comfortable setting for guests. He will give you insight into his tricks and recipes to allow you to leave the boat with some tools to take home in order to make your cooking more enjoyable. Pascal will be the Captain of the Genesis 66 and your own personal Chef on the boat. He will make sure you are well-nourished and safe during this Wellness trip. He will also be hosting a Cooking Demo Session with some local wine tasting which will for sure be filled with some good laughs, as well as some good teachings and tools to bring home.

Nicole, on the other hand, will take care of everything else to make this an unforgettable wellness trip. Nicole is a certified Wellness Coach and Yoga Teacher as well as a Stand-Up Paddle Board Instructor (Paddle Canada certified). She will be guiding you through the weekend with Yoga sessions, Paddle trips, Floating Yoga and Meditation, Journaling exercises to reconnect with your true self and some nice long guided relaxations. There will be room in between to have one-on-one sessions with her, as well as free time for yourself to just relax in the hot tub, read a book or lay on the deck in the sunshine.

A few amazing details regarding the boat we are taking out:

The Genesis 66 is a gem in Waterway's fleet and takes the concept of spaciousness to the next level. The panoramic view from the top deck will make the sunrise/sunset meditations and yoga classes extra inspiring.
This boat sleeps 24 guests, but we are only taking 12 guests to provide you with the necessary space to relax. In addition to keeping the intimate setting that allows you to relax & rejuvenate.

The boat allows for enough space to enjoy our healthy home cooked meals, as a group in the dining/living area while being inspired by watching our chef.

The boat also provides an eight-person hot tub allowing you to stargaze at night. We believe this boat is the perfect setting for the retreat activities planned throughout the trip.

If Yoga and Meditation are completely new to you - wonderful. No experience required. During this trip it will not be so much about the yoga poses but more so about connection, breathwork, pausing and connecting with nature, your body, your soul and your heart.

Whether you have experience in yoga or not, you will find what you need in this retreat.

The practice of yoga can always be adapted to your need and level.

There is something surreal about gliding across the water on the serene Shuswap Lake during a Sunrise or Sunset. Step out of your Comfort Zone and give it a try. Nicole will be there to give you all the necessary instructions to feel safe. You go at your pace and level.

You might just stay seated or kneeled on the paddleboard.

A floating Relaxation or Meditation Session might be just what you need to connect with the fluidity of the lake and yourself.

Our Captain will take us all the way up to the North side of Shuswap Lake where we will hike to the beautiful Albas Falls. Around this time of the year, they are a must see and very spectacular with lots of water.  A beautiful walk through the forest, soaking ourselves in the energy of nature, will bring us to this beautiful setting.

Pascal and Nicole together with Waterway Houseboats, feel honored and excited to be hosting this first Shuswap Lake Houseboat Retreat.

Take the leap towards YOU and join us chasing Sunsets, Moon Rises, Sunrises, Waterfalls, and peaceful waters in the Shuswap.
