For the Spring 2013 issue Victoria-based writer/photographer Susan Rybar had the enviable task of escaping from the daily grind to test out a handful of the many retreats found in the Kootenays. She re-centred with yoga and meditation at Quantum Leaps Lodge and Retreats, learned the coveted secrets of how to raise her metabolism at Mountain Trek Fitness Retreat and Health Spa, released her inner Picasso during an art retreat at Renata’s Simply Delicious Lodge, then explored cottage-building and wilderness-skills workshops. In this gallery Rybar shares more of her images from her assignment, with the hope that they’ll inspire you to unplug, relax, and rejuvenate, too.
