We all had an incredibly magical weekend at Harmony Dawn Retreat Centre- Ontario’s Ecological Friendly Retreat



 Dear Reader:

We would like to share with you our impressions and thoughts regarding Elizabeth Hagan’s Heartsong Springtime Yoga Retreat held on May 27 – 29, 2011 at Harmony Dawn, not far from Peterborough, Ontario. My husband, Jim Muckle, and I had the most wonderful experience with Elizabeth (and a dozen plus other yoga enthusiasts). I am her great fan and supporter. I have studied both Yoga and Pilates under Elizabeth’s wise and gentle guidance; and I am proud to say I am one of her first Registered Yoga Teachers at the 200 hour level. I also qualified this year under her instruction as a Pilates Mat Instructor. I therefore want to affirm that Elizabeth’s depth of knowledge and skill in guiding and teaching Yoga is profound. She designed and delivered an incredible two day retreat for all of us that touched the hearts and souls of each participant in a unique way, no matter their background and experience. She brought humour, warmth and caring to the journey we all made together that offered not only a soft, restorative atmosphere that healed and nurtured each one of us in our own way, but also added a dimension of learning and discovery that exceeded our expectations. A centerpiece of the experience was a focus on mandalas. Not only did we learn about them but we each also had the most amazing opportunity to work with a true artist, Anna Luczak, and to create our own mandala on canvas in a painting workshop. That was incredible!

Furthermore, supporting this wonderful retreat, was the experience of spending two full days at Harmony Dawn, – a totally “green” facility that offered us a unique educational opportunity in being “off the grid.” This magical place has been recognized as a leader in eco-friendly construction. Harmony Dawn was created and built, and has been operated since 2005, by Andy James and Nicola Lawrence. We dined on “5 star” vegetarion cuisine prepared by Nicola that went far beyond our expectations.

Jim and I look forward to Elizabeth’s next retreat!
