This year marks the 5th anniversary of the Restore Retreat experience, so it’s going to be extra special!

Regulate and calm your nervous system with meditation, sound, movement, nordic spas, and above all, rest! Repair and restore your digestive system and reduce whole-body inflammation with the award-winning, unbelievably delicious and detoxifying Tonique Cuisine®. This retreat is hosted by Montreal-based, trauma-informed naturotherapist and certified yoga and meditation teacher, Angela Boismenu. She will be offering sound therapy, accessible vinyasa classes, restorative yoga, as well as a special chakra-balancing practice to best complement the art of ceremony and the healing power of rest.

Daily guided morning meditations, restorative and vinyasa yoga practices, sound therapy, intuitive movement, and down time to rest are planned into each day.

All yoga classes and meditations will be led in Canada’s two official languages, cuing one side of the body in English and the other in French. The Year Closing Ceremony will be bilingual. The Yoga Nidra guided meditation sessions will be done separately in both languages.

We’re so excited to announce our guest teacher for the 5th year anniversary, Luxembourg-born hatha yoga and intuitive movement teacher, Elody Hafner. She has also trained in Ayurbalance, a deep tissue massage technique, as well as sound therapy and meditation. Elody will be offering an intuitive movement class, as well as hands-on assists during various yoga practices throughout the retreat.

Curated and led by yoga and meditation expert

Angela Boismenu

Angela is a registered Naturotherapist, yoga teacher, and somatic therapy practitioner. She also has ADHD, PTSD, and multiple autoimmune conditions.

Sometimes it’s a struggle, and sometimes it’s not so bad. She has also been living a sober life for almost 10 years.

Her intention as a Naturotherapist is to share the knowledge, tools, and techniques that she’s learned
over the years, in the hopes that it will lead others toward a happier and healthier life experience. Her
services focus mainly on the therapeutic treatment of trauma and its physical, emotional and spiritual symptoms. Through therapeutic yoga, somatic therapy, and microbiome/genomic testing she aims to give her clients functional tools to help them better deal with whatever situation may be at hand, good or bad.

Her personal healing journey began after a severe back injury in the mid 90’s, that left her with limited
mobility and chronic pain. She started to search for something that could give some type of relief. She turned to drugs, alcohol and other self-destructive behaviours in her teens to distract from both her
physical and emotional pain. It took her until her early 40s to figure out that the deep pain she was still
running from wasn’t stemming from any physical issue, but from the psychological wounds and
neurobiological changes that occurred in response to early childhood trauma. This pain first
manifested as anxiety and dissociation, and later on as cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, plaque psoriasis, and osteoarthritis. Bessel van der Kolk has it right, the body really does keep the score.*

Living with ADHD, complex PTSD, and myriad health problems hasn’t been easy, but she’s come a long way from that self-medicating twenty-something year old. There is still a long road ahead, but she
keeps walking it, regardless of how daunting it may seem at times. Wholeness and happiness are
possible, they can just take a lot more work to arrive at for those of who have suffered trauma.

Your time with Angela and Elody will be an opportunity to:

  • Celebrate yourself with yoga & ritual
  • Participate in vinyasa and restorative yoga classes, as well as a special chakra balancing practice
  • Leave with a better understanding of yourself and your connection to spirit, with a special Ceremony of Honourable Closure for the year end

All yoga classes and meditations will be led in both of Canada’s official languages, cuing one side of the body in English and the other in French. The Yoga Nidra guided meditation sessions will be done individually in both languages.
