Yoga Instructors

Canticle Clark 

Yoga has been a part of Canticle’s life for at least 10 years. In January 2017 she was called to take a 200 hour Ayurvedic & Yoga Teacher training in Edmonton, Alberta with Sacred Seed Yoga & Ayurveda. 

I chose to do this for my own spiritual, mental wellness and to connect back to who I truly am. I will always be a student eager to learn. I am grateful for my wonderful teachers and fellow students as well as the Yoga community.

I seek to help others thrive in life by nurturing their body, mind and soul. By using yoga and the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda. My hope is that you step off of your mat feeling connected with yourself, grounded and balanced.

I truly believe Yoga is for Every Body. Yoga has given me the chance to go inward, slow down, and stay in the present moment. Life can pull and push us in so many directions, and my mat is always out to invite me back to a place of peace and connection, a place within myself.

Anna Wilson 

“To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest. To live fully is to be always in no-man’s-land, to experience each moment as completely new and fresh.”

Perfection is like death -Pema Chödrön

Anna’s personal practice began with a need to repair and strengthen the body after a strenuous season of tree planting. After recovery, she never stopped yoga. She discovered that yoga, no matter who you are, can be beneficial in all aspects of one’s life.
Anna completed her 200hr. Yoga in Schools and Yoga in Studio teacher training in Halifax, Nova Scotia with Breathing Space Studios in 2016.
Since then, she has been teaching and traveling throughout Canada and for the past two years, relishing in the magnificent landscape British Columbia has to offer. Anna looks forward to contributing and becoming apart of the community here in Port Alberni, where magic happens!

I have been practicing as a naturopathic doctor in Port Alberni and Tofino for 13 years, and I love helping people manifest better health. I grew up in Thunder Bay Ontario, and then spent many years studying human biology and naturopathic medicine in Toronto. As well, I traveled around South East Asia and lived in Japan between these study years.
