Chantal Russell Unknown Location

Chantal is an international yogini, best selling author, holistic nutritionist and ayurvedic wellness consultant. She is passionate about awakening and reclaiming the sacred feminine, creative Shakti power within us all. Whether through yoga and meditation, simple daily ritual, moon gatherings, conscious lifestyle design, curiosity or conversation, her desire is to empower women with practical wisdom.

Chantal believes that well-being comes from aligning to nature and soul, and is ultimately about embodying who you really are. She is the founder and director of The Well, a boutique yoga studio on Bowen Island, British Columbia Canada where she resides; a faculty member at the Vancouver School of Healing Arts, and Wellness Director at The Orchard Addiction Recovery Center.

When not teaching or writing, she can be found gardening with her husband and son, reading by the fire, or traveling the world in search of good waves, healing foods and nourishing conversation. In Essaouira, she will be leading daily yoga and meditation sessions, ayurvedic self- discovery workshops, and one-to-one ayurvedic lifestyle or holistic nutrition consultations.

Her kind, generous spirit will support in creating a safe and sacred container for women on their journey of discovery. Together Chantal and Amanda will provide guests with beautiful and meaningful rituals that invoke an unconditional self love and awareness for guests upon arrival, during their transformation throughout the week, and upon completion of the retreat to send them back into the world feeling expanded and grounded.
