The Yurt Retreat was founded by Sheena Singh, life-long dreamer and doer. She is the owner and Executive Director of the Multicultural Calendar, creating and selling print and online calendars that feature all the major religious and cultural celebrations of the world. Having immigrated to the United States from India at the age of 21, she has made Toronto her home since 1987.

Launching the Yurt Retreat has been Sheena’s true passion, driven by her interest in sustainability, nature and meditation. She has created the Yurt Retreat from the ground up, picking out not only the specific yurts, but their design, furniture, and sustainable infrastructure.
