Kudos from Past Retreats:
"My first Milagro Retreat was in Baja almost four years ago. At age 50, I decided to take on the challenge of learning to surf. That experience was top notch, and I have since enjoyed two additional retreats in Tofino. Shani and her cohorts have managed to get the mix pretty well perfect: stimulating participants, extraordinary locations, opportunities for activity and relaxation, experienced and joyful staff, and food that is prepared with loving attention, then devoured with delight. Thanks Milagro, I will be back!"
"A phenomenal time! Great people, amazing food and magic location, yoga, surfing and a hot stone massage... now that's good living!"
~ Kat Pellatt
"Thank you for an amazing experience and amazing energy! I can't wait to come back."

Yoga & Movement
With an integrated approach to flow yoga, Nadia and Andréane each bring a different perspective to practice as they share their unique and regenerating ways of teaching. Classes will be a balanced combination of Prana Flow inspired energizing sequences, (that will allow each guests to discover their full spectrum of movement) followed by a grounding, rooting evening restorative practice.
Tune into the connection yoga brings to surfing as you discover the links between both practices. Let the ocean be your primary teacher and embark on a magical week in one of North America’s best and most beautiful surf towns!
NADIA BONENFANT~ E-RYT Nadia has been teaching yoga since 2003. She is a Prana Flow inspired teacher blending her love of movement to the great outdoors. Her approach is accessible to all levels and energizing for the body and soul.
