Retreat Overview

“The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination, and brings eternal joy to the soul”
~ Robert Wyland

Experience the freedom of leaving your daily attachments behind and diving in to four days of coastal living and self care. Connect to the beauty and abundance of nature and get back to your true self; the source of your integrity and strength. Explore some of the local beauty our incredible province has to offer.

Join Janet Corvino and Jodi Dodd at the Tofino Botanical Gardens, located in the heart of Vancouver Island’s Coastal Temperate Rainforest. Dive deep into your personal practice, with two daily yoga classes and specialized workshops to gain a more in-depth understanding of the ancient yoga sutras and how you can apply this philosophy and wisdom in your life. Nourish your body and soul with daily practice and home cooked organic breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can enjoy access to the Botanical Gardens throughout your stay.

Outside of our daily yoga sessions, check out the endearing beach community of Tofino. Explore the rugged shore line along beautiful open beaches, surf your heart out, or explore the calmer side with Stand Up Paddle boarding on the Inlet. Alternatively, there are options for bike rentals, kayak tours, whale watching, and more.
