Ages 10 - 14 Swift is the programming language of Apple’s mobile devices.

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?

Anxiety and Depression for Women

Riding the Roller Coaster of the Nervous System Are you a woman struggling with stress, anxiety and bouts of depression? Are you unable to cope with the demands of life? Finding it difficult to sleep or make decisions? Struggling to find direction and purpose in life? You are not alone. Anxiety has become the number one mental health issue in North America with one third of the adult population are suffering from its effects. This course will teach you the physiology of the nervous system and how thoughts, emotions, diet and exercise affect its balance and regulation. You will learn how to regulate the system using techniques such as tapping, mindfulness and meditation to help counter the wide mood swings of anxiety (the nervous system stuck on ‘on’) and depression (stuck on ‘off’). Group discussion, buddy support, home assignments, and daily journaling will help to anchor new approaches into everyday practice.

Infant Massage

Massaging your baby is done with your heart, and not just your hands. Your gentle touch during massage, and at other times, communicates a message of love to your baby. Your baby needs your loving touch to grow emotionally and physically strong. Massage helps your baby to relax and let go of tension. Many parents happily report that after a massage, their babies sleep better, have an easier time with feeding, and experience fewer stomach upsets. Over these four sessions, you will learn massage strokes and how they benefit your baby; physically, emotionally and psychologically. You will also learn specific strokes to soothe a crying baby and to relieve colic/gas. The class is open to moms and dads with babies from four weeks old to “not yet crawling”. The class is interactive, fun, and relaxing. No prior skills required, except loving hands and an open heart.

Adults Feeding the Goddess

Aura Imaging and Chakra

Dance

Paying attention to inner experience is the foundation of self-knowledge, identity, intimacy with yourself and then with others. Self-advocacy begins with paying attention to our own experience. In this group we will explore our inner landscape through the vehicles of our body, breath and voice, in movement, vocal and interactive exercises.

Have you ever wanted to see what your aura looks like? Have you ever wondered why you are attracted to certain colours and not others? Enhance your mind/body connection and improve your health and wellbeing with the Biopulsar. The Biopulsar is the most advanced aura diagnostic tool in the world. It translates the energy read from each reflex zone into the colour language allowing us to see our aura. In this workshop you will be provided with a full body aura photograph and chakra analysis, the health and vitality of 47 different organs and 8 brain parts, sources of inflammation in the body, and the display of thoughts and emotions on a conscious level. Discover the colour of who you are and how it can enhance your life. Simple and effective tools will be suggested on the course for healing emotional and energetic blockages. The instructor has travelled and worked with the Biopulsar in New Zealand, Ontario, and British Columbia, and has discovered that we are all connected with each other in our colour. Knowing this can greatly assist us in our lives here.

Adults Learn to Play Pickleball

Ages 15+ Pickleball can be played by all ages and athletic abilities. Many of the rules function to slow the game down significantly.

Each session will include a 15 minute warm up, 45 minutes of skills, and 60 minutes of game-play. Thursdays | Feb 9 - Mar 9 10:30 am - 12:30 pm 5 Sessions $38 | Code: 7861 Island Savings Centre

Carol Harvey An Artist/Art teacher residing in Victoria BC, Carol hails from Montreal, Quebec where she completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in the early 70’s, topped it off with a Diploma in Art Education and launched a teaching career in the public high schools. Taking up residence in BC in 1990 she devoted more time to making “things” than to making a living and to teaching drawing to adults through communitity centres. In 2000 she found herself instructing in an after school art program at Shawnigan Lake School where studio space and encouraging colleagues were perks of the job. “I’ve died and gone to art heaven” is one of Carol’s favourite quotes. Carol offers her “Drawing: Yes You Can!“ class at the Shawnigan Lake Community Centre. It is specifically directed at people who are not all that sure that they can. Lots of laughter… a few basic skills and learning to “see” is the formula.
