Yogis value peace of mind and calmness of spirit, but those things can be hard to achieve amid the bustle of daily life. Wendy and Darin, 20-year veteran yogis themselves, created Shanti Retreat as a place where fellow practitioners can break out of their routines and enjoy a little relaxation with their practice. The retreat itself sits on 11 acres of Wolfe Island's shoreline, with stunning views of the St. Lawrence River.
The hosting duo and their staff lead yoga classes throughout the day, as well as provide and maintain an inn and water-front cabins. Come breakfast, dinner, and lunch, they prepare delicious vegetarian meals for guests. Guests need not leave the idyllic confines of the retreat to satisfy any need; perhaps this is why The Kingstonist described Shanti as "Wolfe Island's best kept secret."
