This refreshing and energizing class combines the supportive nature of water and the harmonizing effects of yoga; this makes it ideal for people of all ages and health to not only keep fit but also strengthen the body and mind. Slow stretches, breathing and relaxation techniques and the use of water to provide resistance to the muscles makes this a challenging and relaxing workout!

Balance & Range of Motion (ROM)

Dry Land Class Descriptions Total Body Conditioning (TBC)

HEAT Spin

This spin class combines spinning with plyometric interval training off the bike. It is a total-body workout that consists of a 60-minute cardio segment followed by core strengthening.

The “gentlest” of our gentle classes, this is a warm water class working on balance, gait training and range of motion exercises. This class focuses on slow, controlled motions in the water and is a great choice for those looking to rehabilitate an injury or for women looking for a pre- or post-natal option.

REV IT Up Spin

Gentle Aquafit

Full Body Blast

Relieve stiffness and increase flexibility with a class designed specifically for people with mild arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome or back problems. Emphasis is on a long warm-up, stretching and range of motion exercises. Gradually participants will progress to gentle cardiovascular training and the use of flotation devices.

Riley Minue Pool (formerly the lap pool) Aquajog NEW

A great way to supplement your training for your next race or maintain your fitness level while injured. This is an intensive workout that removes the repetitive impact associated with running on land. It also improves blood flow to muscles and speeds up recovery between land based workouts. We focus on the rate of perceived exertion (RPE) scale to challenge each participant to reach their individual goals.

Aqua Variety

This aqua fitness class can change weekly, offering a variety of workouts in deep water, including: boot camp, tethered, sport focus, and strength classes. Water specific equipment may be used and will be provided.

Deep Water Workout (DWW)

Deep water workout is an aerobic workout in deep water. Challenge your cardiovascular system and build up muscle tone to improve overall fitness levels. Swimming skills are not necessary but participants should be comfortable in deep water. Buoyancy belts are provided.

Tethered

NEW

TBC uses your own body weight and a variety of equipment such as medicine balls, resistance tubes, and gliders for a challenging and varied workout that keeps you working!

This Spin class, on indoor spin bikes increases cardiovascular capacity by combining endurance, interval training and cadence control. Rev It Up will help build and maintain endurance year-round, and give the added benefit of fat loss and toning through anaerobic interval sets.

In this intense hour, anything goes. We’ll use all kinds of equipment, as well as body weight exercises, to give you a great strength, cardio, and stamina workout.

Rock Body Circuit

NEW

Looking for an awesome muscle blaster and fat burner… this one uses the entire gym so we have lots of space to kick the workout up few notches. Med balls and body weight movement, with sprints all combined into super intervals for the ultimate workout.

This is a parented program that is designed to introduce infants and toddlers to the water. It focuses on teaching parents proper techniques to help their children learn in a positive, safe and fun environment. We have divided some of our L’il Tots programs into 2 levels. Where possible, we are now offering the L’il Tots 3 as a separate class, so we can provide a better experience for those “older” tots and their parents.

Preschool 1 – 5

The Preschool program is made up of 5 levels. These 5 levels help children age 3 to 5 learn to love the water through games and activities. Swimmers that complete the fifth level and move onto the Swimmer program are able to bypass Swimmer 1. We have developed our own program for those who have completed Preschool 5, but are not yet old enough to enter the swimmer program, called Preschool Plus. Check it out!

Swimmer 1 – 6

The Swimmer program is for children age 6 to 12. In this program, swimmers achieve greater success in each of the 6 levels. When skills in the Swimmer program are complete, the next challenge is the Canadian Swim Patrol program. As always, we welcome your questions and feedback! For more information on our programs, please contact the Aquatics Centre at 403-938-8055.

On Exhibit At The OAG Camp | Janice Tanton

January 11 to February 23 | Large Gallery CAMP is a visual-arts project examining identity and contemporary nomadism through the eyes of indigenous and non-indigenous Canadians. Camping, as our recreational modality, has become a reflection of how we conduct a relationship with temporal place and resources in community. Opening Reception: Friday, January 11 | 7:00 to 9:00 pm Wine proceeds to support Okotoks Arts Council

Inviolable | Bruno Canadien

January 11 to February 23 | Small Gallery My work speaks to the modern presence of Native peoples in the Americas and honours them in their resistance to colonial governance and industrial invasion. My language includes the use of collage, painting and drawing, and various decoration, which strives to reflect my personal visual history within our larger complex and blended North American history, from Plains and Dene visual traditions to Modernism to mass media to powwow. Opening Reception: Friday, January 11 | 7:00 to 9:00 pm Wine proceeds to support Okotoks Arts Council

Serendipity | Okotoks High School Students

March 1 to April 20 | Large Gallery This group of young artists has joined together to showcase different talents from artists at the Alberta High School of Fine Arts and Holy Trinity Academy. They have collectively decided that due to the variation of media, the theme should be Serendipity: a collection of differences coming together as one. Opening Reception: Friday, March 1 | 7:00 to 9:00 pm Wine proceeds to support Okotoks Arts Council

Virtual Music | Bev Mazurick

March 1 to April 20 | Small Gallery These paintings explore the notion that a sensory experience, such as listening to music, can be re-created into visual art. The focus is on the correlation between the structure of the music – the relationship between instruments or parts, and the building blocks of visual art. Visually reiterating the composition mattered more than rendering a simple emotional response to the music.Virtual Music, as the title for the series, suggests that sense of morphing from one art form to another. Opening Reception: Friday, March 1 | 7:00 to 9:00 pm Wine proceeds to support Okotoks Arts Council

Children of Icarus | Keith Harder

April 26 to June 16 | Large Gallery Beside the secondary highway between High River and Cayley there is a land art installation titled “Gravitas” that Keith Harder created in 2009. It is a 300-foot compass that uses derelict aircrafts from Bomber Command Museum in Nanton to mark the 12 points of navigation. Two other sections of that project also generated in the region will be shown at the OAG. One section of works consists of drawings from the storage yard of the Bomber Command Museum before it was dispersed. The other is a set of digital prints of those same derelict aircrafts. Opening Reception: Friday, April 26 | 7:00 to 9:00 pm Wine proceeds to support Okotoks Arts Council

The Crooked Trees of Alticane | Ken Delgarno

April 26 to June 16 | Small Gallery The Crooked Trees of Alticane are a grove of trembling aspen that have genetically mutated. So much so, their trunks and branches twist and contort at incredible angles. The spirit of the trees is palpable. There are so many rhythms flowing in this small tract of land located near Hafford, Saskatchewan. And yet amazingly this place has remained virtually unknown.To add to the allure, in an adjacent grove, not more than 15 meters away, the trembling aspen grow perfectly straight and tall. Opening Reception: Friday, April 26 | 7:00 to 9:00 pm Wine proceeds to support Okotoks Arts Council

The Art of Fishing | Mary-Beth Laviolette

June 21 to Sept 7 | Large Gallery “Fishing provides that connection with the whole living world. It gives you the opportunity of being totally immersed, turning back into yourself in a good way,” wrote acclaimed poet Ted Hughes. Continuing that it’s “a form of meditation, some form of communion with levels of yourself that are deeper than the ordinary self.” Interestingly, if the first word that began that statement, “Fishing,” was to be replaced by the word “Art,” the meaning would be valid. The two activities are conceptually synonymous. Great art, great water, great tackle, great fish, the Okotoks Art Gallery brings you a reflection on this theme with The Art of Fishing, featuring paintings, original prints and glass sculpture. Opening reception: Friday, June 21 | 7:00 to 9:00 pm Western Chic event $20

Gemstone Horses | Shannon Ford

June 21 to Sept 7 | Small Gallery This exhibition includes original acrylic and gemstone powder paintings, along with original jewelry and sculpture created by former Okotoks area resident, Shannon Ford. Artist statement: “I am a painter whose focus is in expressing motion, time and the shifting of light. The surface of the painting incorporates layers of precious and semi precious gemstone powders, which create an illusory effect that shifts and subtly creates a shimmering, translucent surface. This is a natural progression from my 30+ years of experience as a fine art jeweller and precious metal sculptor.” Opening reception: Friday, June 21 | 7:00 to 9:00 pm Western Chic event $20

Sunday, March 3 | 7:00 pm Tickets $70 +GST Fundraiser for Literacy for Life For over 40 years, actor, singer, producer and activist, Tom Jackson has crafted a compassionate stage of caring. He has embraced his life experiences, championed for the marginalized, and entertained a continent of concert-goers and TV watchers. His acumen has earned him recognition amongst his peers, yet he humbly perseveres as it’s the reward he seeks, not the award.

History Museum & Archives International Museum Day – Social Change

On Exhibit Along the Sheep River: Stories of Okotoks

Permanent Exhibit This permanent exhibit explores Okotoks’ special landscape, compelling characters, and bright future. Photos and artifacts help bring to life the stories of the town’s rich natural and cultural heritage, with a focus on early immigration, domestic life, education and commerce.

A Trunk Full of Hopes and Dreams

January 4 to May 18 | Temporary exhibit Many early immigrants came to Western Canada with the hopes of providing a better life for their families.This is the common thread woven into the stories of local families who demonstrated an unwavering spirit of adventure, patience and persistence. These stories of Okotoks families will amaze you – from their long ocean voyages to their first impressions of the barren prairie. Portions of “A Trunk Full of Hopes and Dreams” will become part of the museum’s permanent exhibit.

May 18 to May 31 | Temporary Exhibit The theme for this year’s International Museum Day on May 18 is “Museums (Memory + Creativity) = Social Change”. How do museums deal with Canada’s not-so-politically-correct history? We don’t brush it under the carpet but share it as part of our history. This exhibit includes some of Canada’s not-so-proud past including immigration policies, internments and residential schools. Sharing history, warts and all, promotes awareness and helps lead to social change.

Our Sheep River

June 1 to September 30 | Temporary Exhibit The United Nations has declared 2013 as International Year of Water Cooperation. This exhibit celebrates our relationship with the Sheep River including its vital role in our community’s history and in our present lives. The exhibit aims to provide visitors with a multi-layered understanding of the Sheep River (geologically, environmentally, culturally and socially), and to improve awareness and appreciation for its existence.
