      Yoga in the Park

      Yoga in the Park Join the Friends of Fish Creek to relax, revitalize and restore body and mind while connecting with the earth in the beautiful setting of Fish Creek Provincial Park. Raja yoga incorporates all eight limbs of yoga and emaphasizes the connection between the union of body, energy and mind through postures, meditation and breathing techniques.  Instructors Gwen and Naomi return for their 7th year of teaching for the Friends! Gwen Draude received her 200 hour yoga teacher training certification in 2012 from Sunshine Yoga Academy in Calgary.  Yoga continues to teach her the fundamentals of slowing down, being present, breathing deeply, and learning to let go of meaningless worries or thoughts. Naomi Parker, of Elemental Wellness, is a Certified Fairy Intuitive Healing Practitioner, Reiki Master, Registered Yoga Teacher, Mudra Therapist, and Spiritual Response Therapist (SRT). She grew up in Northern Alberta where, surrounded by wilderness, grew a fondness for the Earth and its elements. She has been practicing yoga for over 10 years.  Things to bring:  your yoga mat and any other yoga props you like to use, as well as a bottle of water.  Bug spray is also a good thing to bring, and please remember to dress for the weather, as this is an outdoor class (wear layers, bring a jacket and/or a blanket) Where to meet:  look for our volunteers in one of the green spaces adjacent to the Bow Valley Ranch Visitor Center or between the yellow historical buildings.  Driving Directions: take Bow Bottom Trail south to Fish Creek Provincial Park, turn right into the main parking lot and walk west past the red barn along the paved pathway to meeting place noted above. **Class cancellation:  due to the outdoor nature of this class, poor weather may cause us to cancel a session, sometimes on very short notice.  In the event of poor weather, please check our website for cancellation postings at http://friendsoffishcreek.org/programs/wellness-clinics/  or call the Friends at 403-238-3841.  We will also send an email to all registrants by 5pm if a session is cancelled, so please ensure you check your email prior to class.  In the event of a cancellation due to poor weather, or other factors beyond our control, you will be issued a full refund.
