Your inner-mission, if you so choose to embrace

Pack your sleepover bag (don’t forget your coziest jammies and your favorite stuffy), grab your bestie and meet us at The Oaks Seaside Retreat, owned and grown by Holistic Nutrition Consultant and Halifax Yoga YTT graduate, Karen Kerr.

Our chosen oasis is located in the serene community of Chester Basin,
during one of the most colorful times of the year in our ocean-playground Province.

During our weekend together, we will turn off the GPS and run on uninhibited giggles. Remember that feeling? Let’s call it in!

I spy with my little eye…

With curiosity as our guide, in a loving, held space, we will explore the concept of play, what it means to us, the medicine it brings and ultimately re-inspire how to foster it in this gig called life.

As we embrace immersing ourselves in activities to cultivate a felt-sense of joy,
our “to-do list” gets abra-ca-da-bra-d into our ultimate “play-list”!

This experience will leave you deeply cared for to support your journey of embodied sense of play.

Your Guides:

Together, they bring over 20 years of yoga teaching experience, along with 40 years of group facilitation. Trauma Informed space holders, Kari and Nicole’s service delivery is influenced by modalities such as Reiki, BodyTalk and Intuitive Reflection.

Nicole Clarke

A lover of mud pies and gummy worms, Nicole holds space for all that is incredibly human and magically energetic from as far back as knee-high to a grasshopper. She dons various super capes that include Social Service Provider, Trauma Informed Yoga Instructor at the 500hr Level, Workshop Facilitator, Reiki Master/Teacher, Certified BodyTalk Practitioner and Intuitive Conduit. Home grown in Halifax, NS, Nicole plays at the ocean, on bike rides, yoga dates, hikes, loves to dance and once got gonged during karaoke. But, she still sings; loud and proud! Nicole fills her heart with aligned connection, learning, teaching and community is everything! Come and play with her!

Kari Morgan

Kari came into this world with an innate love of games. From hopscotch to Go Fish, she is always ready to join in! Learning, leading and facilitation have been much loved tools in her toybox for as long as she can remember. Known for her ability to laser in on innate potential, her superpowers include: 500 hour Yoga Certification, Reiki Master and Yin Goddess. This ocean girl is known to sing in yoga classes (she just can’t help it) and has never been gonged during Karaoke! Sorry Nicole! A puddle jumping enthusiast, who is never weighed down with the heart-shaped rocks in her pockets, Kari believes fiercely in the power of connection, community and camaraderie. While she can’t draw a straight line with a ruler, she sees art and beauty in everything. She can’t wait to play with you!
