The Yoga

In the mornings explore the energetically balanced fluidity of Hatha Flow Yoga and in the warm afternoons enjoy a slower, deeply inward turning yoga experience. You will learn simple, yet effective tools to calm the mind and lead a healthier lifestyle through asana, pranayama and meditation. We will be doing our yoga classes in the yoga room at the nearby (5 min car ride or 15 min walk) Tofino Botanical Gardens. If tide and weather permits we will do one or two of our yoga sessions on a private stretch of beach.

Meals by Shani

Shani will nourish us with mostly vegetarian Feasts. A fresh salmon dinner will be offered for one of the meals. Special care is taken to be sensitive to our guests’ dietary restrictions so if you are vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, have food allergies, etc. Shani will do an exceptional job of accommodating your preferences.
