Yoga Retreats with Tesh

Join us in a glorious therapeutic setting for yoga and adventure activities in the beautiful Slocan Valley with Ken 'Nateshvar' Scott. Offering one of the most unique and personal yoga retreats today, Tesh has an exceptional ability to deeply connect with each participant while maintaining a sense of bonding and community within the group.  For your experience, Tesh draws on over four decades of profound yogic practice that includes hatha, Dance Kinetics, flow yoga, power yoga and Contact Yoga, with a special focus on the yoga of relationship with yourself and others. From morning to night, your retreat will be exhilarating, challenging, inspiring, joyful and transformative, facilitated and enhanced by the magnificent Valhalla mountains. All fitness levels will be accommodated.

Ken 'Nateshvar’ Scott is recognized as a pioneer, leader and innovator in the field of yoga and dance and the creator of iconic expressions of classic hatha yoga. Tesh is the co-creator of Contact Yoga: The Yoga Of Relationship, the landmark practice that brought yoga off the solitary mat and into the realm of connection and relationship. Tesh has served as a trainer to many top athletes, actors, executives and politicians throughout the world including Demi Moore, Woody Harrelson and Hillary Clinton. He and has been featured in Vogue, W and The New York Times and Self Magazine named him one of the top ten yoga instructors in the US.
