About Nirvana Retreats

Getaway From The Everyday

Nirvana Retreats offers the perfect environment to learn, play and connect. We offer day retreats, workshops, classes and courses for all ages. We are opening up a Learning pod for kids and will be offering childminding while you get a massage, do a yoga class and take some self care. We are also going to be offering self development courses for adults simultaneously as for kids.

Nirvana Retreats is a place to transcend your daily suffering and attain peace. We focus on self-development, strengthening community and creating resilience against external forces. We encourage participants to become active members of our Centre by becoming involved; be it with gardening, volunteering at one of our events, hosting a workshop or sharing your talents with us.

Nirvana Retreats is located on a 14 acre property including a 1 acre springfed swimming pond, with trails, manicured gardens, an organic vegetable garden and a stunning post-and-beam renovated ‘Yoga Barn’ with a picturesque yoga studio overlooking the pond. We are a non-denominational Centre with a focus on wellness, learning new skills and letting go of old habits while taking a digital detox. We are nestled in the Oak Ridges Moraine, an area that actively protects at-risk species, just 45 minutes from Tottenham, Orangeville, Bolton and Alliston.. We have a great respect for the wildlife and natural habitat surrounding us and ask that all guests honour the beautiful, serene surroundings.

How It Started

Nirvana Retreats is a small, family run business. After 5 years of running a business in downtown Toronto, entrepreneur Liz Christo needed a Retreat for herself. While doing research on Retreat Centres nearby, she stumbled upon this one, Though they were no longer hosting retreats, the property had become available. Liz and her family jumped on the opportunity to move out of Toronto and work together on this family endeavour in 2016. We hosted many weekend retreats in the years leading up to COVID, then took a break to spend time with our little ones and homestead. We are slowly reopening without an overnight option.

What a magical space filled with love and calmness. The minute you step into retreat center, you feel calmness instantly. It is so well kept and the layout of everything is perfect. The food is from heaven cooked with love and joy. I truly had the best ever gluten free waffle here and the best ever buddha bowl! The host is amazing and so accommodating with our request. Thank you for an amazing weekend. Will definitely have our next retreat there again!

I loved this place. We were so well taken care of, and the grounds are so beautiful and tranquil. The Yoga barn is absolutely stunning and the food was outstanding!

Elke (Retreat Participant, July 2016)

I can’t believe how perfect Nirvana Retreat Center was as a venue for my yoga retreat. I found it online and took a risk and it was everything I could of asked for. The yoga room was so aesthetic and calming, the pond was rejuvenating, the dining facility felt like I was eating in an upscale barn, the grounds were breathtaking with the most beautiful sounds of nature. The staff were so friendly and inviting that we felt so at home. Thanks Liz and Michael for sharing this amazing space with us.
