Sheila Harvie


The retreat is owned and operated by Therapeutic Lifestyle Educator, Facilitator & Corporate Team Building Coach, Sheila Harvie. Her career was inspired by her fascination for holistic and alternative health care and by a passion for helping others relate/communicate more effectively. Sheila strongly believes that prevention is the best medicine and enjoys the opportunity to coach her clients into discovering the endless health rewards that accompany the choice of a multidimensional healthy living regime.

Raised on the family cattle ranch near Calgary, Alberta, Sheila developed a love for nature and the great outdoors. In 2006, after traveling abroad, Sheila decided to build Chimney Rock Ranch Wellness Retreat where she could offer her clients a first class corporate team building & health retreat. Here they could come to relax, rejuvenate, take in the serenity of nature, learn and get inspired. Sheila has brought together one of the industry's finest teams to offer an optimally beneficial experience for corporate health & wellness guests!


Gerald Auger


Gerald Auger is an actor, producer, writer, entrepreneur and motivational speaker from Alberta, Canada, of Woodland Cree descent. He graduated from Grande Prairie Regional College in 1995 with a Marketing Management diploma and a Small Business Management certificate. In 1996 and 1997 Auger was awarded the National Native Role Model by the Governor General of Canada and spent the next two years visiting more than 30 communities across Canada, inspiring his aboriginal peers, relating stories about his experiences and bonding with locals through cultural events and ceremonies. After being spotted at the opening ceremonies of the 1995 Canada Winter Games, Auger was given a supporting role in the 1998 film Il mio West (later dubbed Gunslinger’s Revenge), also starring David Bowie and Harvey Keitel. Filmed in Italy for Pacific Pictures, it was the first spaghetti western to use First Nations actors in aboriginal roles.

As owner and Chief Executing Officer of Black Eagle Entertainment, Auger produces films, television series and documentaries aiming to advance the status and expose the stereotyping of his people. 

Chimney Rock Ranch Retreat is honoured to have Gerald as one of our highly valued Indigenous program facilitators!


Glenn Stewart


Glenn Stewart has been working with horses and their owners for over 40 years teaching thousands of students his Horse Development Program.

Glenn’s work with and knowledge of horses is diverse. He travels extensively each year delivering horsemanship clinics across Canada, the United States, South America and Europe. Glenn leads camps at his home in Fort St. John at The Horse Ranch. For 19 consecutive years, he led the Learning Holiday Adventure High & Wild in the Northeastern Rocky Mountains – a remote location 160 kilometers from the nearest roads. Glenn was in charge of the horse program and developing 200+ herd of wild horses. This included: the breeding program, seasonal round-up, the taming/gentling, foot breaking, trimming, overall maintenance of the herd and welfare. Ultimately horses were prepared annually for people from all over the world, with varying degrees of horsemanship abilities to be able to safely ride in the wilderness of the Canadian Rockies.

“I believe people get into horses because they love the thrill and connection that is possible. I also believe the connection and thrill of a good partnership with your horse is much deeper than most realize and is worth the effort.” 
– Glenn Stewart

Chimney Rock Ranch Retreat is grateful to have Glenn's horsemanship facilitation expertise to offer our guests and recommend enrolling in his highly accredited online learning program -

Tanya Ryan is a 200 RYT/CYA Vinyasa Flow Yoga Instructor trained by Vidya Jacqueline Heisel and Jennifer Yarro of Frog Lotus International. Her primary 200 hours were instructed at a private retreat in the Costa Rican Jungle near Cahuita. It was there she learned how to guide a Vinyasa Flow-style class, read and assess body alignment as well as hands-on Thai massage based yoga assists to aid students in further deepening their poses and their practice.

“Yoga allows you the unique opportunity to become fully aware of your connection to your mind and your body – each and every time you step onto that mat you learn something new about yourself that allows you to deepen that connection. I have enjoyed getting to know myself better through my own practice and have found it even more gratifying to be able to share this experience with others.”

Chimney Rock Ranch Retreat is grateful to have Tanya 's many years of knowledge & expertise to guide our guests through dynamically beneficial classes!
