Retreats, Yoga, and Fitness

Add to my moments

Whether you're interested in an immersive multi-day retreat or a drop in class to energise you before a day of adventure. Banff and Lake Louise have you covered with a wide variety of retreats to nourish the mind, classes to revitalise and recharge your body, and events to get the heart pumping.

Wellness Retreats

Banff and Lake Louise's longstanding tradition of rejuvenation and self-improvement continues today with a range of wellness retreats that are available year-round. 

The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise offers a number of different wellness, mindfulness, and yoga retreats to help you reconnect with yourself and find balance. Some of the retreat offerings include yoga and meditation, health and wellness, creativity, meditation, and writing. These retreats will help you de-stress, while the serene nature of the Canadian Rockies will restore you. There is no better way to find balance, be mindful and remember to breathe.

The Banff Wellness Retreat is a weekend of self-care, healing, and relaxation held in the ideal setting for spiritual rejuvenation. You will leave with a deeper understanding of your body, mind, and soul and release your authentic self to create lasting change. Held at various dates throughout the year, this yoga, dance and self-reflection retreat will have you ready to transform your life.

Yoga

Practising yoga can help you find inner balance and strength. Whether its a vinyasa flow you're looking for or Shavasana, yoga's focus on movement connected with breath will enhance mindfulness and awareness of the present.

In Banff and Lake Louise you could act on the inspiration garnered by the natural surroundings and take a mat outside for your practice. Or, you could practice as part of a like-minded community at a studio in town.

If you’re interested in a  yoga class, take a look at the offerings at Cedar & Sage Co. and Banff Yoga Practice.

The annual Banff Yoga Festival brings together teachers of yoga, meditation, and mindfulness in a celebration of the area's unique connection between yoga, mountains, and culture.

Fitness

There is no doubt that moving our bodies is good not only for our muscles and our heart, but for our mind and spirit too. Choose from a variety of different fitness classes to keep you moving during your visit, or visit to participate in two heart-pounding race events.

If you like to work up a sweat indoors, there are some great options for gyms and fitness classes in Banff and Lake Louise. Take a look at Summit Lifestyle and Performance if you’re after a weights workout, spin or fitness class; or try crossfit with Bow Valley CrossFit.

Bring your closest competitive friends and participate in two of the most scenic races out there, Melissa's Road Race and the Banff Marathon. Escape to Banff and Lake Louise for more than just the event, and make sure to relax and unwind after the event by enjoying your time out in nature, or recovering in one of the many day spas on offer.
