Warm Yin, Tuesdays, 7 pm. Yin is both a gentle and encompassing yoga practice that is designed to literally open the body, peeling away layers of tension, stress and injury that reside within. A gentle approach is used to stretch the body, using longer holds to get beyond the muscle tissue into the connective tissue, the fascia of the body. All poses are seated or reclined. The slower nature of this practice is often described as a “moving meditation”. A great compliment to your regular practice. Suitable for all levels.
ManYoga is gentle basic yoga with a focus on easing stiff muscles, enhancing flexibility and relaxation. Mondays from 8:30-9:30 pm, and Tuesdays 10 am (in Telkwa).
Just Dance is an opportunity to connect with yourself, body, mind and spirit; to let go of fears; to move freely in a judgement-free environment. Just Dance is held in a safe space, where people from all walks of life are invited to come together, take off their socks, shed their inhibitions, and just move with the music. Fridays, 8-10 pm. Entry by donation.
