No matter what your day-to-day looks like, it’s important for all of us to take time away from our every day lives to recharge our bodies and refresh our minds. Life may be stressful or simply mundane, but Pender Island has the perfect remedies to leave you feeling relaxed and inspired. Here are our suggestions for a much-needed R&R getaway on our beautiful island:
 
 
You’ll get a whole new perspective on yoga when you’re not rushing home in traffic right after a blissful savasana. Check out The Studio: A Yoga Collective in Hope Bay, just a 20 minute drive away from Poet’s Cove Resort. Class offerings are varied, so you can decide whether you want to challenge yourself with Progressive Advanced Power Yoga, or find deep relaxation with a session of candlelight yoga and meditation with live music. Drop in classes are only $15 for a 60-75 minute session, or $16 for a 90 minute session. 
 
 
Put down the coffee and the wine — sorry, we know! Once in a while, it’s important to take a break from the caffeine and alcohol that our internal systems are so used to. Swing by the Southridge Farms Country Store, on North Pender Island 20 minutes away from Poet’s Cover Resort. Try not to get distracted by the delicious scents of their espresso bar and instead take stock of the unique and wonderful products in the grocery. With a focus on natural and local foods, Southridge always stocks a selection of gluten-free bread options, locally sourced eggs, organic produce, and hormone and antibiotic-free meat. All lodge rooms at Poet’s Cove Resort have a mini fridge, so you can stock up on raw veggies, fruits, and natural snacks. Our villas and cottages even have fully equipped kitchens, so you can whip up a healthy meal anytime. 
 
 
Not to toot our own horns, but at Poet’s Cove Resort, we know relaxation. Our onsite Susurrus Spa specliazes in all your favourite traditional spa treatments, as well as Hawaiian, Chinese, and South Asian therapies. Enjoy some quiet moments in the Eucalyptus Steam Cave, hidden behind a cascading waterfall, or soak away worries in the hot tub. Susurrus Spa offers manicure and pedicure treatments, waxing, body treatments including wraps and exfoliation, and 15 different types of massages. For those who really need to relax, we recommend the Journey treatment, where a full body massage is combined with essential oils designed to open the chakras. The session is followed by a discussion with the therapist, who will offer insight on your specific chakras. 
 
Simply being on Pender Island is a calming experience, surrounded by nature and friendly locals. Add in Poet’s Cove Resort’s magical views and luxurious amenities, you’ll forget the troubles of everyday life in no time at all.
