Natalie Rousseau Horscroft E-RYT500, Anusra Inspired™ Yoga Teacher
“I have been a devoted student of yoga since 1999 and I began my teaching career in 2002. I teach yoga because I have experienced its power to heal and to transform firsthand and I am dedicated to serving my students by sharing with them the practices and the teachings that have so positively benefited me in my own life.
It is my mission to inspire and to support others in stepping wholeheartedly onto the path of self-empowerment that is yoga. This mission is guided by my overall vision of how communities of self-empowered people around the globe can change the world for the better. Teaching yoga is the offering I make in support of this vision.”

Choose from 3 options at the beautiful Eco Lodge at the Botanical Gardens. This Eco Friendly building is situated on 12 acres of waterfront rainforest and gardens at the gateway to the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
Rooms have either Queens, 2 singles or 4 oversize bunk beds with down duvets, lockable closets and a window looking out over the rainforest or Tofino Botanical Gardens.
The Pacific Rim, though only a few hours from Vancouver and Seattle, exists in a world of its own. Nestled between ancient rainforest and the wild Pacific Ocean, this spectacular coastline is home to an abundance of natural wonders. At the northern edge of the Pacific Rim National Park lies the quaint, inviting town of Tofino, home to artists and surfers alike. Discovered a century ago when Anglican missionaries searched for the most beautiful place on Vancouver Island, Tofino continues to invoke a sense of breath-taking, awe-inspiring beauty.
