Part of travellers' regimen while on the road may be maintaining their health and well-being so that they can enjoy their holiday to the fullest. Those who are journeying to Canada's capital city this fall may want to participate in the Power of Movement event that will celebrate the art of yoga. This can be a wonderful opportunity to continue exercising while on vacation or to learn about this fun and invigorating activity.
On March 4th throughout the country, hundreds of yoga enthusiasts will be taking classes to improve their strength and focus. The collective workshops will educate people on the importance of movement in their lives as well as raise awareness for debilitating diseases, such as arthritis. Those who take the classes are asked to fundraise for the cause, and the top teams will be awarded prizes such as free yoga gear, fitness gift certificates and gym memberships.
The workshop will take place in Ottawa at the Richelieu Vanier Community Centre and last for a little over an hour. The venue can accommodate a few hundred participants, but those interested may wish to make plans now as space has filled quickly in the past. Led by yogi Jessica Keats, the session will hone in on controlling the body, centring the mind and having fun with other fans of the practise. It will be beginner-friendly, so no matter the skill level, all should feel welcome to attend. If travellers have their own mats and supplies they may bring them, or the venue will have some extras available for purchase.
Travellers who will be in other parts on Canada during this time can take part in other classes throughout various major cities. Toronto will host both a yoga class at the Toronto Reference Library and a pilates course at Pure Fitness, while Montreal will have a class at the L'Espace Griffintown. All of these events will occur at 11 a.m. Guests may register through the official website hosted by the Arthritis and Autoimmunity Research Foundation.
Trying new things on holiday is always a thrill, so travellers who wish to do so can participate in the Power of Movement this March for a great experience in self-improvement and having fun.
