|ERA Dragon Boating
Schwatka Lake Recreation AreaIn partnership with Flatwater North, ERA members can train in the sport of Dragon boating. Originating from China, dragon boats are typically long and wide and can fit 20 paddlers (10 on each side). Flatwater North has a “mini” dragon boat, which will be able to fit 12 paddlers (6 on each side). The paddling technique is similar to canoeing, although you have to stay in sync! Dragon boating is slated to be a demonstration sport at the 2020 Canada 55+ Games in Kamloops, BC.Tuesday AfternoonsJuly 16th - August 20th (6-Class session)2:30pm - 4:00pm$65.00 for full session
Mindfulness Meditation 101
with Ruth Lera
Mindfulness Meditation is the practice of taking the time to sit still in a comfortable, supported position to support the experience of focusing intentionally and purposefully on steering our attention where we want it to go.
In this beginner sitting mindfulness meditation course participants will sit in comfortable chairs and be led through a series of short, accessible, guided meditations that will be informative about how to practice sitting meditation, as well as providing guidance on how to bring what is gained from sitting meditation into all life activities and experiences.
Mindfulness meditation helps people connect to their inner strength, quiet the mind, reduce stress and increase health and well-being. Studies from Harvard University have shown the benefits of sitting meditation practice to include: boosted immune system, improved quality of sleep, increased positive emotions, increased density of grey matter, improved memory, stronger sense of self and enhanced relationships.
Sessions will include group discussion and opportunities for participants to ask questions as needed.
