Baby-Kettlebell

it is hard to believe i am creating 2020 class schedules, but indeed i am.  well, let’s just leap into the leap year, shall we?

both gentle yoga and group kettlebell class will continue to be held on mondays and fridays in the upton room at west royalty community centre.  gentle yoga is 10:30 – 11:30 and group kettlebell class is 12:00 – 12:45.

kettlebell training will help you meet your fitness goals! compound exercises work multiple muscle groups simultaneously, developing strength and muscular endurance and efficient caloric expenditure. the workout puts the focus on integrating breathing, movement and alignment with your ability to control balance and weight. working with the kettlebell is combined with body weight exercises for an all around heart-pumping workout.

**if you have not previously worked with kettlebells, dropping in is not safe or suitable. please get in touch so we can give you a proper introduction before you join the class.

enjoy a 60 minute gentle yoga practice geared toward maintaining joint health and body imagesstrength as we age, move through stress-related soft-tissue tension, arthritis, or a variety of joint injuries.  listen to your heart’s voice and move gently through your days.

a gentle flow warm-up sets the tone for stretches, basic postures, warm laughter, and a rejuvenating final relaxation.

no yoga experience is necessary for this class.

yoga takes you by the scruff of the neck

and takes you on a journey

whether you like it or not.

beachit has been a glorious summer.  i love heat and sunshine and the slow pace of my life during this season. beach walks, ocean swims, deck dining, books and beer and birdnerding.

i do hope you found wonder and peace in your summer months.

just as summer arises, so too will it pass away.  the steady turning of the wheel; the hours of the sun in the sky shorten, fresh food is harvested from trees and fields, the return to school, the landscape takes on new colours.

*please note no classes:  friday september 27, monday september 30, friday october 11, monday october 14, friday november 8, monday november 11,  friday november 15, friday december 6.

yoga is a dance between control and surrender — between pushing and letting go — and when to push and to let go becomes part of the creative process, part of the open-ended exploration of your well-being.       –Joel Kramer

love, wendy

a group of smart, big-hearted women have come together to help feed island children.

from their facebook page:

We are a group of moms challenging you! How many children can you feed?

Research shows a strong correlation between healthy eating and academic success. Let’s give all children the same chance to succeed. Feed a child and raise a reader.

It takes roughly 3lbs of food to feed a child for one day. Let’s see how many children a community can feed. We are challenging you to reach out to your family, friends, colleagues, contacts, to see just how far reaching our community is.

How can you help?!? Reach out to your family, friends, colleagues, contacts and organize a friendly competition or host a party and get your guests to bring a can of food rather than a host gift! Put together a neighborhood challenge and challenge another neighborhood. Challenge another company or department at work; challenge yourselves.

Together Everyone Achieves More.

Contact us on FB for more details or email us at momsvshunger@gmail.com.

part of their drive was to organize yoga instructors to offer classes as part of the drive.

i have two coming up.

donations are accepted at both locations – the whole way health & fitness studio and Atlantic Fitness East – even if you do not attend the class.

be generous.
