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!

Tanya Ryan

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.”


CGAA recognizes Chimney Rock Ranch Retreat for its business excellence and customer service and highly recommends it for a retreat getaway.
