"Hi Valma, Thank you for all you shared with us on our recent July 2017 Gulf Islands Trip.  It was indeed "transformative" and I intend to carry forward many of your teachings into my everyday life.  I enjoyed every moment and learned alot about myself and others.  Namaste & Blessings"   Jackie from Alberta, Canada

"The four day Gulf Island women kayaking and Yoga Adventure with Valma of HERIZEN™ Life Adventures and Lisa of Salt Spring Adventures was a fantastic experience due to the expertise in kayaking, camping, marine life and the spiritual modalities, including various types of Yoga. The meals were healthy and delicious. The group shared a spiritual journey in a beautiful natural and supportive environment. I highly recommend this HERIZEN™ multi-day women kayak and Yoga adventure, and would do it again."  Donalda Carson

You are a bright star - ever radiating from the inside out!



In 2002 while working in Calgary, two of my dear friends and myself decided it would be fun to take a sailing course.  Fortunately, one of the ladies moms had given her a magazine that advertised different holidays for women and one was HERIZEN™ Life Adventures and it sounded just right.  So we ventured out to Nanaimo to learn all about sailboats and how to sail.  We had a lot of fun, staying at a B & B on Protection Island and sailing during the day.  During the course, we always felt comfortable and safe, because we were in good hands with Captain Valma Brenton and all of the skills and knowledge she shared with us.  We returned to Calgary and eventually wrote our Sail Canada Sailing exams, which we all passed very nicely. The next year my husband and I bought a sailboat in Ontario that we sailed on the Georgian Bay for four summers.  Kate and her partner have chartered sailboats practically every summer out of Nanaimo with their families. Lois flew out one summer to Ontario and spent a week on my boat with my youngest daughter.  

Over the years we often talked about our wonderful adventure we had with Valma from HERIZEN™ Life Adventures and this year 2016 after 14 years from our first HERIZEN™ experience we decided to do something different and join the Gulf Islands Multi day Kayak & Yoga Fusion Adventure with Valma.  

We all knew we would be safe in her care and thought it would bring a different dimension to a holiday. We were certainly right.  Another friend joined us from Calgary (Susan) and we met six other like-minded women.  The paddling was great, organic food delicious, camping equipment excellent (although we did miss our pillows!).  Everything was carefully planned out from where to camp, what routes to take, so that we always had an easy enjoyable day of paddling.  As an extra, Valma led us in Yoga and Meditation. It is a wonderful trip to take and I would highly recommend it.  Another trip we will always remember and so wonderful to see Valma again. Thanks Valma and Lisa for making our experience a great one!
