Yoga & Movement
As an Anusara Inspired ™ Yoga Teacher and a long time student of Vinyasa Yoga and meditation Natalie's yoga classes are an uplifting blend of Anusara Yoga methodology and philosophy taught in a flowing style with an emphasis on mindfulness and sensitivity.
All classes offered during the retreat will be made suitable for differing levels of practitioner so that each student can enjoy the support of community yoga practice. Morning classes will be longer with an emphasis on strengthening and awakening both body and mind, while evening classes will be slightly more gentle and contemplative in nature.
In the Anusara Yoga method it is said that yoga is practiced in order to deepen our remembrance of Truth and as a way of celebrating the gift of embodiment and Natalie strives to create an environment that supports both of these high intentions in each and every class.
Natalie Rousseau (Horscroft) is an Anusara-InspiredTM Yoga Teacher as well as an E-RYT 500 registered with the Yoga Alliance. She has been studying yoga since 2000 and teaching since 2002.
"I teach Yoga because I believe in it's power to heal and transform. This belief is rooted in personal experience and is renewed through daily practice.
It is one of my greatest joys, and deepest honours, to share this practice with others so that they too can access the vast reservoir of strength, creativity, contentment, happiness, and true peace that lies within them.
Yoga is a journey of Self-discovery that is open to everyone irregardless of age or ability. The only pre-requisite for this journey is a sincere desire to begin....
I look forward to sharing this journey with you."

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.
