On a trip out to hot springs cove on a hot day in May, I had the opportunity to bask in the spring sun, explore by paddleboard and dip in the springs with April Robson, Catherine Bruhwiler of Tofino Paddle Surf and photographer Chris Pouget. We loaded up the boat with 3 paddleboards and we were all surprised at how warm the sun was at 9am on the dock in Tofino. Arriving at hot springs a few hours later Chris took photos of us doing yoga on the paddleboards then we headed through the boardwalk trail to the springs. It was delightful to feel the warmth of the sunshine while soaking in the natural hot springs. We lazily made our way back to the boat, put on our thin wetsuits, which was a nice change from the hooded 5/4′s we are used to wearing, and headed out for a cruise exploration on the SUP’s (Stand Up Paddle Boards).
As the sun was beginning to set we decided it was time to pack up and head home. I could have stayed out there for hours if we had more daylight! All bundled up on the boat ride home we couldnt believe how the temperature had dropped from earlier in the day. My face was sore from laughing and we all had perma-smiles from the excitment of the day!
Thanks to Catherine for arranging the trip and taking us there in her boat. Thanks to Chris for joining us and taking photos. Thank you April for your great company and enthusiasm. Join Coastal Bliss and Tofino Paddle Surf this summer for SUP yoga classes led by April and myself. 1 hour classes will be held at Mackenzie Beach on Thrusday evenings starting in July. SUP’s are available for rent at Tofino Paddle Surf and Live To Surf. Get out there and give it a try!
I recommend always wearing a wetsuit as the more playful you get the greater chance of falling in!

Restorative Yoga uses props to get your body into the most comfortable position to not have to “do” but to just “feel” relaxed and giving your body up to the complete support of the surface beneath you (floor & props). In this letting go, there is a sense of peace, tranquility and rejuvenation.
We offer 2 Restorative Yoga classes per week. Great for any age, slower paced and gentle!
Join April Robson Wednesdays 7:30-8:45pm & Dede Sundays 6:30-7:45pm
This class is a wonderful way to close out your day and can be helpful in reducing insomnia as it is very relaxing for the body as well as the mind. All poses aim to reduce stress and they are all practiced using props such as a bolster or rolled blanket, blocks, cushions, a wall, a chair, yoga straps, eye pillows, etc. The idea is comfort and relaxation and staying in a pose for many minutes. Therefore props aid in making you comfortable and to be able to hold the position for any length of time.

Intended for practitioners of all levels and traditions, this workshop draws from Reggie Ray’s “Meditating with the Body” curriculum to explore the richness and the transformative power of our own lives. The body will be revealed as a source of insight and guidance. We will find our hearts vast enough to welcome both self and other. Participants are advised to wear warm, comfortable clothing, and to bring a blanket and mat to lay on. Should participants have a meditation cushion or bench, these are recommended.
