YOGA IN THE HOCKLEY VALLEY with Mar Jean Olson
Ecology Retreat Centre in the Autumn
November 5-7 2021
Give yourself time and space – to breathe, release and explore. Join us for a weekend of yoga in glorious surroundings! Just 50km north of Toronto – near Orangeville – we’ll be within 200 acres of splendid natural forest in the Niagara Escarpment Hills, along the Bruce Trail and the Nottawasaga River.
