The Pinawa Studio

Pinawa is a resort-like community at the edge of the Whiteshell Provincial Park, about an hour's drive from Winnipeg.

Our retreat studio is located inside the W.B. Lewis Business Centre, a short walk to the Ironwood Trail and the shores of the Winnipeg River.

  • "This space is exactly what I needed to take a break and reset. The minute I stepped into the studio, I felt my shoulders drop. The colours, the mood, everything made me feel safe and cared for."

    D. T., Manitoba.

  • “Patlee did an excellent job in curating this space for her clients. Her doors are a threshold into a peaceful learning, integration, and unwinding experience. There is great value in just being present here."

    Jennifer S., Manitoba

About the Studio

Our retreat studio is located within Treaty No. 3 Territory, the homeland of the Anishinabewaki (Anishinabek/Anishinaabe/Ojibwe) and the Michif Piyii (Metis) peoples. Our studio is founded on values of community, humanization, and stories. We are honoured to be located within this territory and respect the resources, the people, their history and stories.

Our studio is a safe space where nature inspires mindfulness, reflection, and stories.

  • Mini-Retreat Packages

    Retreats are a great way to feel more empowered and in control. We offer various in-person options that teach you how to effectively use mindfulness strategies to stay connected to the present moment while objectively looking at expectations and challenges. 

  • Private Studio Sessions

    For individuals who wish to explore practices that fit their particular challenges and circumstances, we offer private studio sessions so that they can explore activities more deeply or one-on-one with a facilitator instead of in a small group setting.

  • Group Planning & Meeting Space

    Elevate your team mindset and take the stress out of your next budget, operations, or planning meeting. We will provide your team with a curated space and coordinated wellness services to help them feel energized, aligned and focused, so you can communicate better and move ideas forward.

  • Group PD Day Retreats

    Build a culture of care and inclusivity by engaging your staff and team with mindfulness and mental health personal development. Your team will leave the retreat feeling empowered in their self-care and decision-making and be more motivated to support those they work with and care for.


Studio Resources

Our studio is equipped to nurture small groups and one-on-one activities. Here are a few things you should know about our space.


    We offer standard and customized packages for using our meeting, meditation and workshop spaces. Our service packages for groups range from making the space available to providing integrated mindful movement and meditation practice sessions for your meeting or event.


    Each package includes hot and cold beverages, light snacks, the use of our high-speed internet, AV equipment, and full access to our workshop and meditation spaces. Mindfulness practice sessions, meals, and event coordination can be arranged at an additional cost.

  • #3 - GROUP SIZES

    We can accommodate groups of up to 6 people for planning meetings and up to 12 people for PD Day Retreats. Wellness practice options for both types of events may include outdoor activities, depending on the group's needs, the season, and the weather.


    Our studio is located inside the Lewis Centre, a former elementary school that has been converted into a business centre. The Lewis Centre is equipped with wheelchair access, has ample parking, and is a short distance from the Pinawa Hospital and other services.
