The Retreatment : Whistler
Natalie grew up in a household that was steeped in spirituality and healing, with a Jungian analyst, a former nun, and a doctor among her immediate family. Her studies in psychology began in performance through years of multi-disciplinary training including: Suzuki, Viewpoints, Grotowski and Committed Impulse.
Natalie took her performance career into movement, touring the world as a dancer for David Byrne and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs before seeking a more immediate connection with community. In 2013, she met Taryn Toomey and became the first employee of The Class and is a Founding Teacher, along with Jaycee Gossett. Through her work in The Class, she has been able to strengthen her own ability to move through trauma and, in turn, help others heal.
Natalie's classes are athletic, vigorous, empowering, and suffused with her natural effervescence. She brings her students face-to-face with their own personal challenges; together, they sweat, they dig deep, and they come out energized — discovering how strong they are, mentally and physically.
Kevin Courtney has dedicated the last two decades to the pursuit of awakening consciousness by focusing on strength, energy cultivation, and mental clarity. He is co-creator of The Bridge Practice, a method which merges Yoga and Qi Gong into one powerful class experience. His work as been featured in Well+Good, Vogue Magazine, VICE, Elephant Journal, and most recently in the new book “Yoga Bodies: Real People, Real Stories, Real Transformation.”
Kevin is on the faculty at the Boston Yoga School, where he teaches philosophy through the art of Raja yoga. He facilitates annually at Bonnaroo Music Festival and offers at Wanderlust, Envision, and Burning Man Arts Festival.
Merging his passion for music and yoga, Kevin is the creator of “Nada Sadhana,” a music project whose debut album, “The Brooklyn Sessions Vol. 1” become one of the most listened to albums in yoga studios across the country. In 2013 he founded INSIGHT - a program which awakens the consciousness of business leaders using the art and science of meditation.
Brew Creek Lodge
Secluded by deep forest, yet just over a one-hour drive from downtown Vancouver and 20 minutes south of Whistler, this 12-acre property provides a place of reflection and dialogue. Brew Creek Lodge provides a distinct West Coast flavor with a contemporary feel. Each building is made from recycled materials that are sustainable, reusable, and renewable whenever possible. Each room offers a unique view, room layout and furnishings.
Morning meditation, The Class by Taryn Toomey and afternoon yoga will be held in The Gathering, a 1200 square foot practice space with sprung bamboo floors. It is sheltered by the majestic pine trees that surround it. In between our morning Class with Natalie and afternoon yoga with Kevin, you’re more than welcome to explore the wonders of the forrest, ponds, and waterfalls just steps away from your room, or fall asleep creekside. The amount of adventure and rest you need is up to you. This retreat has it all at your fingertips.
Wake up to a cup of coffee and a light breakfast with a views of the surrounding forrest and the babbling Brew Creek itself.
Morning meditation with Kevin will be followed by 2 hours of The Class with Natalie.
Brew Creek’s renowned chef, Stefan Vagelatos, is creating gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free simple family-style brunches, focusing on farm fresh, local ingredients.
On Friday afternoon, we’ll take an excursion to Scandinave Spa, whose facilities include steam baths, saunas, cold plunge baths, and a nordic waterfall.
In the late afternoon, join Kevin for a cooling restorative gentle yoga class surrounded by nature.
Our dinners will be comfortably elegant dishes that highlight the best in seasonal, locally raised and harvested produce.
The retreat menu has been carefully designed by the Chef Stefan Vegelatos whose strong belief in natural presentation of fresh, local and sustainably produced food is a perfect fit for Brew Creek Lodge. The onsite innovative geodesic growing dome allows Chef Stefan to grow vegetables of his choice, year-round. It is a state of the art greenhouse, which has brought our food supply even closer to the dining room with unrivaled freshness and quality.
Meals for The Retreatment will be gluten, diary, and refined-sugar free. Of course, if you have any dietary restrictions, just let us know when you book and we can absolutely accommodate.
