I'm Michelle and I'm a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Bodyworker and am credited with Yoga Alliance RYT200 and taught Yoga in Vancouver for 2yrs whilst at school. My passion is for healing and holistic health through food, touch, movement, love and laughter all washed down with plenty of cake :) I offer my services at Cedarwood Cove and practice various massage & bodywork treatments to suit your needs and mood. I provide organic homemade breakfast supplies for all guests, and we try and grow as much food as possible, fish and gather the fruits of nature. I'm always grateful to talk nutrition with guests and have lots of handy tips on food and health aswell as providing private consultations if required. I'm also a qualified Stand up Paddle instructor (Paddle Canada) and urge you to try out SUP from the luxury of the private jetty to the water! I love to share laughs and fire pits with guests, I also know the value of solitude and quiet.
Alan my husband runs a business in Victoria renting bikes, scooters and motorbikes and so commutes a lot between Victoria and Tofino. He is an active member in the mountain biking community and is often found hardcore biking up roots and shoots all over Victorias finest mountain bike trails. He is the outdoor adventure guy, with a keen eye for safety and a dangerous lust for risks. He loves to surf and play in the ocean and is ready to share his passion with friends, guests and anyone else willing to jump in the Pacific! He is the one to ask to fix your bike, teach you how to do a wheelie, assist with surfing, directions, chop you wood, make fires, tell you where to get a good coffee and give tons of knowledge on local hikes and trails (and what to wear!)
We both love Nature, surfing, yoga, food, health, the Universe, laughing, sillyness, love, books, mountains, oceans, travelling, snowboarding, biking, the beach, flowers, people, star gazing, hiking, cooking and chocolate!
Travelling is a big favourite of ours! Ive been known to couch surf, sleep at homestays, work on farms woofing, snooze in Morrocan Riads, try and live authentically as possible in new countries from new zealand to costa rica and all over europe. We never stay in hotels, hence the reason why we are offering to share our piece of paradise and holistic homestay/cabin in Tofino with you. Our dream is to expand the homestay in Tofino and develop in Costa Rica. We invite all people to come and eat organic farm grown foods from the greenhouse, do yoga, surf, collect shells, hike, bike, paddle board, sleep in hammocks, heal, drink wine, make friends, show gratitude and eat chocolate. Wanna come? :)
We want to inspire you to be the best that you can possibly be.
