As we bid farewell to summer, there’s no better time to wind down, reflect and revitalize. On September 30, readers are invited to do so at the first-ever Wellness Retreat powered by Chatelaine.

Nestled in the beautiful Oro Medonte, surrounded by nature and located just 20 minutes north of Barrie, Ont.,Vettä Nordic Spa will be your wellness base for the day.

With the countdown to this highly-anticipated event fully underway, we’re sharing a sneak peek of what’s in store. Scroll down for a closer look!

Inspired by the fall harvest, guests will be treated to a nourishing lunch powered by UHN Foundation’s Serving Knowledge Supper Club. Lunch will be accompanied by a live panel discussion featuring UHN psychiatrist Dr. Sarah Levitt, who will talk about climate change and its impact on mental health.

Restorative yoga

Our friends at Aveeno have a restorative yoga session planned for the afternoon, where guests will enjoy a full-body practice.

Mindfulness meditation

A group meditation session guided by Vettä staff will set up the latter half of your retreat with a sense of calm and relaxation that you can take home with you.
