Schedule Changes this week.

Please note the following changes to the schedule this week.


Polar Bear Swim

What a way to start the year!

We spent New Year’s Day setting our intentions and warming up at a full and vibrant Yoga class at the studio before heading down to North Chesterman Beach to join with many members of the Tofino Community along with brave visitors to take part in the annual Polar Bear Swim.

As always it was an exciting and refreshing event, a few interesting costumes, lots of smiles and Hot Chocolate to warm the soul after the dip.

Thank you all who joined us and to those that couldn’t make it we wish you a happy and healthy New Year and look forward to seeing you around the Studio this year!
