We live in an amazing town, with The Mississippi River running through the heart of our community. It’s important to take some time to reflect on our relationship with this essential element; essential to our survival, the survival of our planet, and the survival of all living species we share our home, the Earth, with.
We are so honoured to partner with Ocean Bridge to offer you this all levels 2 part yoga series dedicating our practice to water conservation and education on how we can all do our part to protect our waters. Join us tomorrow morning from 8:30 – 9:30 am (Tuesday, August 25th) for a beautiful and accessible yoga set honouring the rhythms of the water.
Ocean Bridge connects Canadian youth from coast to coast to coast empowering them to make a difference towards ocean and water conservation. Each year 160 youth (ages 18-30) form a national team engaged in co-creating and delivering service projects for their home communities and two immersive expeditions addressing Ocean Health and Ocean Literacy in Canada.
We have so many amazing designated natural conservation areas within, as well as just outside of our town. The Mill of Kintail is but one example of our many resources here in the Ottawa Valley, they have some wonderful initiatives and are a great connection for learning more about the importance of our actions in light of water conservation. Please take the time to increase your own understanding so we can all be an active participant in protecting our waters.
The classes in this mini series are free to the public and an amazing opportunity to learn more about water conservation, to move your body and explore postures that will deepen your connection with the water that flows through you, to connect with community in a meaningful way, and to reconnect with the water we are all a part of. We’ll be meeting at our own local waters, at Metcalfe Geoheritage Park
We hope you can join us, as Ali from Ocean Bridge and Amber from our studio, lead you through these classes! Please bring your own mat, whatever supports you will need, and your own water bottle.
We’ll practice with a socially responsible distance between all participants, and masks are optional. These classes are weather dependent, although if a little rain is falling it will simply support our practice!
