Where you'll stay

About Nectar:

Nectar Yoga Retreat is a healing space that sits on 20 acres of forested land on Bowen Island, just a short 20 minute ferry ride from Vancouver, Canada.

Our life's work is the stewardship of this land, to care for and know its forests and waterways. By holding space for guests to slow down, our intention is to seed consciousness that naturally comes from immersing oneself in the land.

Our modern, Scandinavian-inspired cottages provide the container for an easeful getaway in nature.


Rest and recharge among the Alder trees, and vast varieties of Pacific Northwest flora and fauna.


At Nectar Yoga, we hold space for reconnection in an effort to seed consciousness, individually and collectively. We are grounded and inspirited in everything we do. Our guests describe us as peaceful, nourishing, safe, illuminating, and accessible.

The Food

All meals served are plant-based and curated to sync with the season.

Stay nourished during your stay with lovingly-made meals served family-style at the long table in the Onyx Lodge as you dine in community.


*Allergies and dietary restrictions can be accommodated – we do our best to avoid cross-contamination however the kitchen facilities are not completely nut-free.

"My experience on Ali’s retreat was unexpected, no expectations
but my mind was so blown!

If you are vibing for a connection on so many levels, this is something you have to do. It’s so releasing. It’s just so beautiful.
You walk in a caterpillar and you just blossom out these wings of magic.

This is her calling. You have to just do it!"

Reconnect to nature, yourself and
your personal practice

during our 7 transformative sessions of yoga, meditation, breathwork and energy healing- both in the geodesic dome and outside surrounded by trees

"My experience at the Sayulita Yoga Retreat with Ali Temple was transformative.

Ali’s positive and nurturing energy and the other healing experiences offered (yoga, massage, Reiki, Sound Bath) had an accumulative effect that has had benefits that endured beyond the retreat.

I’ve had an overall general shift in my nervous system, feeling calmer, more directed and more intentional. I also feel a greater self-acceptance and much less negative-loop thinking.
I thought I was going for a relaxing weekend and ended up with some surprisingly wonderful and unexpected positive changes in my core being. Thank you Ali!"
