Physical Literacy

Physical literacy is the key to being

ACTIVE FOR LIFE What is Physical Literacy?

Physical Literacy is the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life. (The International Physical Literacy Association, May 2014) Physical activity is a lot more fun when we’re physically literate. If we want children to be active for life, they need to develop physical literacy at a young age. Physicalliteracy.ca offers coaches, recreation professionals and health practitioners access to a wide range of resources that can help people become physically literate.

What are Fundamental Movement Skills?

Fundamental movement skills are the foundation for an active life. This list contains 25 fundamental movement skills which children can learn: 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99

Adults

Chair Yoga

Ages 15+ For those who may not feel comfortable getting down on the floor, maybe feel a little wobbly on your feet, or don't want to participate in a traditional yoga class, Chair Yoga is a great alternative. While either sitting or using the support of a chair, you can benefit by increasing flexibility, mobility and joint strength through a series of gentleness. We incorporate our breath with these movements to create a sense of calm and wellbeing.

Restorative Yoga

A soothing practice incorporating the use of props that enables us to hold poses for longer periods of time. In doing so, we allow the connective tissues to gently soften, resulting in gentle stretching of the muscles and strengthening the joints, while calming the mind. We are on our mat for the duration of this class; chairs are available for anyone who may need assistance getting up at the end of class.

Adults Supported Parenting Workshop

Parenting Triple P Group Program

For Parents of Children Ages 2 - 12 Parenting is very rewarding and enjoyable, but is also often challenging, frustrating and exhausting. Parents have the important role of raising the next generation, yet most people are not prepared for what lies ahead when they begin parenting. There is no “right way” to raise healthy, well-adjusted children, so it is up to you as a parent to decide which values, skills, and behaviours you want to encourage in your child and to develop your own approach to dealing with your child’s behaviour. This five-week course provides education in Triple P basics, and helps parents deal with almost any parenting situation, in ways that are best suited to their own families. Parents only; no childcare provided. Minimum of 5 participants required. Thursdays | Sept 5 - 25 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. 4 Sessions FREE | Code: 16217 Shawnigan Lake Community Centre Instructor: Laurie Tonkin

The session will start with providing a bit of information on family dynamics, parenting styles, co-parenting, managing behaviours, attachment, screen time, peer orientation and tools for parents and caregivers on how to navigate some of these challenging waters. The goal of the group is to provide some tips, strategies and overall support; however, a portion of the session will be dedicated to open discussion where parents and caregivers can ask for advice and share trade secrets.
