Yoga on Bowen: Returning to Nectar Yoga B&B (+ Why You Should Go)

Girls yoga getaway at Nectar Yoga B&B on Bowen Island

What a difference a year makes. 

It’s been a year since I started running. A year of reflection. Of change. 

So much has happened since the last time I visited Bowen Island and Nectar Yoga B&B that it was like an out of body experience returning last month.

While our room wasn’t terrible, the chocolate brown walls were starting to drive me crazy and I was craving a brighter, lighter, calmer space. So first up was a fresh coat of paint followed by the addition of some wall decals for an accent wall.  View Post
