About this event
We (Farah, Will, and Jennifer) have received funding from UBC to support health and wellness through fitness/personal care sessions and we want to invite all of you to attend! Our teacher will be Dr Farah Shroff, an experienced teacher of yoga, dance, self-defense, meditation and other practices who has taught in over 50 countries. She is the Founder and Lead of Maternal and Infant Health Canada, a global public health collaborative (maa.med.ubc.ca). Dr Shroff will soon be a Fellow at the Harvard School of Public Health.
Power up your workout with this boot camp! We will have high energy, cardio, strength, balance activities that will get us ready for a healthy summer! Join us for a variety of different kinds of practices in this Go! Go! Go! series of classes; we will have some yoga classes that will be mellower and also some yoga classes that will be encouraging for those who have practiced yoga for some time. Yoga, dance, self-defence will form the basis for many of the classes. Meditation, visualization, laughter, eye care, foot care and other aspects of yoga will be incorporated into some of the sessions.
We aim to have a series of fun, movement-oriented sessions that will gear us all up for optimal mind-body wellbeing.
All participants are asked to work out at their own level, listening to the messages that come from their own bodies and heeding the advice of their medical practitioners. These sessions are pitched for intermediate to advanced levels so beginners, while welcome, are cautioned to only participate safely and within their limits.
