Mindfullness, Meditation, Energy Fields and Chakras

Join Ruth Lera, travelling from the Yukon in this two hour workshop open to all levels of practitioner! Students will have the opportunity to practice mindfulness meditation and discuss how the practice of mindfulness can be of great benefit to our yoga practice and our lives. We will also discuss how meditation is the jumping off point for working deeper within our own being through learning how to take care of our own energy field and chakras for the purpose of improved health and well-being.

This will be an experiential course. Ruth will energetically assist people in opening their chakras and clearing their energy field.

Ruth Lera is a Certified Quantum Touch Practitioner, Healing Touch Practitioner, Certified Meditation Instructor, Law of Attraction Counselor and has completed her practicum studies in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction.

She lives in the Yukon where she has a home practice providing energy healing to both people in her community and to clients all over the world through Skype.

Ruth offers workshops in person, as well as offering on-line classes in both mindfulness meditation and energy field and chakra education.

Ruth is also a prolific writer and contributes to multiple on-line journals, including Elephant Journal. You can find out more about her at

A few silly moments from our Youth Yoga Series

Coastal Bliss Yoga Teachers Amanda and Jacky led an after school Youth Yoga Program this Winter and Spring Season and captured a few moments during the last couple of classes.

Consensus is that Savasana is the favourite yoga pose for this crew!

We plan on offering a series like this again in the fall, until then you can check out Tofino’s Summer Recreation Guide with Yoga Adventure and Art camps with Coastal Bliss Teacher Dede Monette.


The laughing train – definitely a favourite!


Can you rub your belly and tap your head in tree pose?
