Cat Island Bahamas Retreat January 2020


With Nadiya Nottingham and Steve Rooney

We have booked all of Shannas Cove Beach Resort for our Qi Yoga Retreat next winter, January 18-25, 2020. Please join us!

Let's take this week together to refresh and rejuvenate - to connect in joy with the sea, the sky, and our selves.

We only have 3 cottages left!

Please let us know by September 30 so we can ensure we have a room for you.


Shannas Cove is a wonderful venue - remote, peaceful, quiet, and intimate.

The eight mile long soft sand beach is gorgeous and all ours except for a few other visitors, the staff are warm and gracious, and the food is delicious. We will have plenty of time for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, walks on he beach or in the woods, and sitting in beautiful sunny and shady spots. Here is a link to the resort:


Our group practices will be oceanside and invoke the nature spirits of this extraordinary place.

We will offer daily morning and late afternoon yoga and Qigong practices as well as group sessions on therapeutic skills topics. There will be plenty of time for beach or woods walks, kayaking, swimming and snorkeling, and rest. Guided scuba or snorkeling can be arranged.


Beautiful guest cottages!

The resort has 5 one-room cottages and a near-by property with 2 one-room cottages and a beautiful great-room building with a large covered deck facing the sea that will be our teaching center. We may also rent a lovely adjacent property that has 2 one-room cottages. All the cottages have one king bed with a couch and private bath, and are along the beach with glorious ocean views.


The cost will be $3,400 for a single (private cottage) or $2,400 per person for couples or two singles sharing a cottage.

The cost includes the program fee, 7 nights accommodations, breakfast and dinner (including dinner on day of arrival and breakfast on day of departure), Bahamas taxes (12% VAT and 6 % room tax), transportation from/to the Cat Island airport, and 15% tip for cleaning and food service.
