Set along the ocean foreshore of Clayoquot Sound and among the cool reserves of new and old growth forest, The Healing Grounds Spa promises guests a physical and spiritual sanctuary and a menu of signature treatments to revitalise body and soul. The secluded spa features treatment rooms with deep bathtubs, a waterfront massage tent, a yoga and meditation room, cedar hot tubs, a sauna and tranquil outdoor lounge space for relaxing and drinking in the view. For the truly committed, miles of waterfront and forest running trails weave throughout the pristine landscape. View spa menu and book online.
Clayoquot’s magnificent, oxygen-rich old and new growth forest is an ideal setting to mediate and explore the healing benefits of stillness. Daily guided meditation classes help to settle inwards, calm the busy mind and connect to the breath. Mindful time in nature, known as ‘forest bathing’, has been shown to lower blood pressure, reduce the effects of the stress hormone cortisol, elevate the mood and even boost body’s immune response.
On an open–air seaside or studio setting, gentle vinyasa flow yoga classes are offered at sunrise every morning to welcome in the day. Designed for all skill and experience levels, this yoga class will help develop balance, strength and flexibility, while reducing stress and help to calm and settle the mind.
