Our Mission

At Mapiya, we seek to provide you with a place of peace and quiet to rest your mind, body and spirit. As we strive to grow and learn more through the yoga lifestyle, our desire is to transfer our knowledge to you in a chain effect of positivity and growth.


What We Offer

A yoga retreat weekend at Mapiya always includes private or shared accommodation, fully vegetarian, organic meals, silent walks through a private forest, guided yoga and meditation classes and a variety of healing activities that differ with each retreat. Whether you are brand new to yoga or are a daily practitioner, our classes are extremely flexible with the levels and styles of yoga taught during our retreats.


Things To Do

Prince Edward County is an ever growing area with plenty of varied attractions. All within 30 minutes of the retreat are: numerous conservation areas, horseback riding trails, farmer's markets, fishing points, hiking and walking trails, paddling access, wine tasting trails and a number of craft micro-breweries. In the wintertime activities such as ice fishing, snowshoeing and cross country skiing are available! 

Sandbanks Provincial Park is one of Ontario's best-known conservation areas. With the golden sand beaches and the crystal-like water, it is a very popular attraction for sailors, paddlers and bathers alike! Definitely worthy the 20 minute drive from Mapiya!

We are located a mere 9 km from Lake on the Mountain Provincial Park, where you'll find a unique natural lake that has no known water source. Aside from the beauty you'll encounter, you will learn about the Mohawk legends and beliefs in connection with this lake. 

To our fellow nature enthusiasts, you'll be excited to know that Prince Edward County is one of Ontario's bird watching hot spots! Every year, hundreds of species of birds fly through the area, truly turning the County into a bird watcher's paradise. The abundance of natural beauty in this area is genuinely spectacular: North Beach Park, Little Bluff Park, Beaver Meadow Conservation area and so many more! 

For all of you wine and beer connoisseurs, you'll be having a ball out here! With a total of over 40 wineries and micro-breweries for you to check out, we assure you that your taste buds will be highly satisfied. Local, organic... what more could you ask for!?

The County itself is host to numerous events and festivals that vary from season to season. For a full list of County events, click here
