Ritual Island is a movement, wellness and community studio, co-created by Dr. Emily Bennett ND and movement entrepreneur, Robin Lamarr in 2017, in Hamilton Ontario. Together we’re interested in building self-awareness and community by creating accessible and inclusive experiences through decolonized wellness platforms.

Currently, we are a studio without walls, collaborating with various venues to host movement classes, workshops, and our one-of-a-kind teacher training. Our complementary health services (naturopathic medicine, community acupuncture, massage, counselling, +) operates under Ritual Island's former incarnation, Inland Island, founded by Emily, on King and Locke.

Robin and Emily came together, wanting to collaborate on a bigger vision of how whole body health can reach more people, bringing our joint offerings and radical dreams under one roof. Our services are/will be community considerate and socially engaged. What does this mean? It means every one is welcome, no one is priced out and we are ACTIVELY creating reform in how for-profit-businesses can serve all communities. It means our services are offered on sliding scale. It means we want to create exclusive and safer spaces for marginalized folks. It means we want to use Ritual Island as a launching pad for projects outside of what is typically found at wellness studios.
