Yoga in Tofino….NEW!

February 25 – March 2, 2025, with Monica Voss
in association with Merit Travel

Please join me in a new venue – a boutique oceanfront hotel in the heart of Tofino, nestled between old growth cedars hanging on the edge of the shore. Originally built in the late 1960’s the property and its architecture are the definition of cabin vibes. A rich natural landscape surrounds the property which consists of an A-frame house and two A-frame cabins. 

The Shoreline Hotel is very centrally located, a 5 minute walk to Tofino Coffee and Shelter, 10 minutes, to Wolf in the Fog and town center, 15 minutes to Tofino Brewery. It’s a short drive or a 30 minute walk to MacKenzie Beach or Tonquin. A 10 minute drive to the surfable beaches – Chesterman and Cox Bay.

We’ll practise yoga and meditation in the ‘breath-giving’ atmosphere of the Pacific coast of Vancouver Island on old, old land. We’ll watch weather, walk Long Beach, breathe negative ions and rejuvenate. It will be cool, probably rainy, but that’s when the special BC energy emerges and carries us into another place and time.

There is also a hot tub, cold plunge and sauna on site.

Harbour Air offers flight service to the Tofino Marina located next door. (  You can also fly into the Long Beach/Tofino Airport – a 20 minute drive away. There is a free airport shuttle or local taxi service for transport to the hotel.
