Tension Release Exercises (TRE)

Wednesday September 27 – October 25th

Registered Social Worker and Counsellor Barbara Borsutzky and Physiotherapist Bryn Thompson will be offering a series of classes in Dr. Bercelli’s TRE, Tension/Trauma Release Exercises.

This series of exercises when held in a conscious environment allow the body to enter a deep state of relaxation which facilitates the releasing of tension and/or trauma that has accumulated in the body. The class takes 70-90 minutes depending upon a person’s individual experience.

There are a limited number of spots for continuing students and a limited number of spots for people new to the practice. Please contact  Barbara and Bryn for more information or questions regarding Dr. Bercelli’s technique.

You must register per session.  Session dates are listed below.

Space is limited to 12 participants.

Insight Yoga: Nourishment, Grounding & Strength for the Fall 

w/ Ciel Patenaude

Fridays 4:00-5:15pm

October 6th-November 10th

This 6 week series will focus on nervous system regulation, emotional health, and creating a sense of solidity in the physical and energetic bodies. In Autumn, the energy around us is moving from the more active states we enjoy during summer into slowness, asking us to go along with it. And yet, too often this time of year can be busier than any other, causing depletion and exhaustion both today and throughout the winter months! To really support our well-being, carving out time to connect with our inner ground is essential, and will allow us to move through the winter with greater peacefulness, ease, physical balance and insight.

Beginner-friendly! All levels welcome.

Kids Zone ~ Theatrical Dance

w/ Miss White Spider Arts

Ages 3-7

Tuesdays 3:30-4:30pm 

November 7 – December 19

Program Philosophy:
Participation in this dance promotes self-confidence, self-esteem, and a strong sense of self-identity. When students are able to express feelings and ideas through artistic movement, they gain self-awareness and often self-acceptance. Creative movement experiences promote both self-reflection and a deeper appreciation for others. The communal nature of dance learning often helps students who might otherwise feel isolated or alienated in group settings.  We will explore gross motor skills such as balance, coordination, timing, agility, co-operation and leadership skills

Minimum participation requirement is 9 pre-registered in order to run the program with a max of 15.
