Gaia Wellness Retreat is located in the beautiful Gatineau Hills, 45 minutes from Ottawa. Gaia is nestled beside a small lake among many acres of pristine land. Enjoy walking trails in the quiet woods, canoeing, and kayaking. Explore the space to discover the many quiet areas for reflection and relaxation. Sauna time also available.


Our retreat will be held in a beautiful 780-square feet yoga space with cork flooring and natural lighting. It comes fully equipped with mats, blocks, blankets, and meditation cushions.


Accommodations are shared 3-4 guests per room in the main lodge or in a cabin. Each sleeping space is fully outfitted with linens, cozy blankets, and luxurious pillows. The clean and environmentally friendly “honeypot outhouses” are easily accessible to each cabin. You have 24-hour access to indoor change rooms, flush toilets, and tiled, floor-to-ceiling showers. Towels are provided.

If you wish to return home each evening, there is a commuter rate available.


Meals are included and are prepared on-site by an experienced chef. Expect vegetarian, fresh whole foods locally sourced when possible. Vegan, raw vegan, gluten free or nut free diets are accommodated. Please let us know in advance or, of any allergies. Spring water is freely available onsite for drinking.


Traditionally, yoga teachings are given without a fee. Instead, students pay according to the value they received, and what is within their means. The registration cost of $321.93 for this weekend only covers meals, accommodations, and taxes. We ask that after the workshop, you make a contribution to the teacher based on the value of your experience. This supports YogiJD’s ongoing work to bring these teachings to others. Note that a 20 hour workshop of this nature can be $500 – $750.
