We are almost at the end of another year in our beautiful sanctuary. During this past year we hosted several families for AirBnb and continued to conduct our Individualized Integrated Yoga Teacher Trainings. In August we made the decision to no longer rent our in-home suite for vacation rentals and turn this lovely space back in Dr. Black’s therapy centre and small studio. We are thrilled with having the space back to ourselves and even having a couple of extra bedrooms for grandkids and guests! Our students are finding the smaller studio perfect for quiet meditation and yoga practices and it provides a perfect place for our Integrated Yoga Teacher Trainings. Dr. Black’s therapy room includes a cozy seating area for chats, an infrared sauna for her clients to use, a table for students to study and have their snacks or meals, and of course, her massage table for Reiki sessions. It truly has been an awesome year for practice and learning. Dr. Black has also immersed fully into her photographic studies and continues to develop into a full fledged photographer! Please watch this site for her Photography pages coming soon.
What’s in store for 2019? Dr. Black will continue to work with her Integrative Yoga Teacher Trainees with programmes listed with the Yoga Alliance (YA) at the 200, 300 advanced, 500 levels, and with the International Association of Yoga Therapy (IAYT) with her 1,000 hour Yoga Therapy Programme. She is planning an April immersion at the 200 and 300 advanced level for those looking to spend a month in our lovely area. This training will have space for four people to lodge on-site, and of course accommodate local students. Our space is limited to 5-6 students, so each training is definitely geared toward individuals and small groups! Watch for more information to follow, and please contact us if you are interested in attending this immersion or setting up your own individualized Integrated Yoga Teacher Training.
As always, Dr. Black is available for private Health & Wellness Therapy Sessions and Reiki on a limited basis. Please contact us directly for an appointment. Thanks for stopping in today. Please spend some time and flow through the pages if you have questions or are interested in our services. Be safe and enjoy these last wonderful weeks of 2018.
Health, Healing, and Happiness

We’ve been wondering when our grey rainy skies would let go to the sunshine of summer and we are blessed to have it come to us once again! Our flowers, grasses, and fields are incredible, tourists are making their way here joyfully, and these sweet moments of summer are upon us. Our integrative yoga therapy training inside studio is taking a back door to the great outdoors as our students make their way out to the ocean, forests, and lakes. We are experiencing the wonders of meditation and mindfulness in our every day lives and awakening our days with sun salutations and finishing our days with lovely restorative postures. Incorporating yoga techniques and mindfulness happens not just in a studio and on a mat, but anywhere you are and where your breath takes you.
Our three bedroom suite at Qualicum Beach Sanctuary is open for vacation rentals. Please contact us directly for pricing and open dates.
We are looking for a couple of like minded people that would like to share our lovely little Qualicum studio space with us! Whether you want to teach a yoga or movement class, practice massage, have a meeting with your writer’s group or special interest hobby club, or host a weekend workshop, we have ample open times to rent out our sweet space. Studio space accommodates a movement class of 8-10 and is heated with Blackstone Saunas Infrared Yoga Panels. Portable tables and fold up chairs available for 14. Massage table and infrared sauna in smaller space. Hourly rate is $25/hr or we can workout an ongoing negotiated schedule. All rentals are set around our current training schedules. Please contact us to set an appointment to meet.
Enjoy this summer!
Welcome Spring! We are thrilled to continue our 300 Hour Advanced Yoga Therapist Training through to the end of June and are starting our next intake of 200 Hour Introductory Yoga Therapeutic students. We start in earnest with this new intake of students on June 18th, so if you’d like to join us, please contact us! We plan on meeting every Monday and Wednesday evening from 5:30-9:30pm with an occasional Tuesday evening and other days within the mix. Our goal is to complete this training by the end of July early August with perhaps a few overflow days into September. In September, we start our 500 Hour Journey to Wellness section of Dr. Black’s 1,000 Hour Integrative Yoga Therapist Training. This is a good place to either begin or finish your training. Each month is a different workshop and topic. Stay tuned for our schedule. As always, Dr. Black runs personalized trainings that work with both your schedule and hers, so please contact her to arrange for your personalized training. Training with others is advantageous to students as a cost break applies for multiple students, but if it doesn’t fit your schedule, we can work with you to make something that does! Our next Reiki Level 2 Training is on 02 June 2018 from 9:00-5:00. If you would like to participate in this next level, please contact Dr. Black.
If you would like to meet with Dr. Black for Health and Wellness Therapy, please send her a message and she will be happy to book an appointment with you! As we move into the busier days of summer with glorious sunshine and more time outdoors, please be sure you keep up with your water intake, eat real foods, and take time to rest and play. Thanks for visiting us today. Have an amazing spring!
