Yin Yoga

Known as the quiet practice, Yin Yoga focuses on the slow, patient, opening of the fascia layer of the body. The fascia is the connective tissue which underlies the skin, wraps the muscles & holds the bones together. Chronic tightness of these tissues cause stiffness & inflexibility, restricting mobility & energy flow. Yin postures are held longer giving the body an opportunity to open & release tension. This class is offered on Tuesdays and/or Thursdays.

Yin Yoga is suitable for most levels of students.

55+ Yoga

Our 55+ Yoga class is a gentle beginner's class with the option to use a chair for stability or to do the poses seated rather than on the mat. This is a great way for older adults to get the wonderful health benefits of yoga. Staying seated means that even those with mobility issues or those who aren't flexible can safely do the poses. Yoga is an excellent way for the 55+ crowd to loosen & stretch painful muscles, reduce stress & improve circulation.

 Speaker Bios

Judi Rich formally began her spiritual journey in 1992, when she discovered a Brahma Kumaris Centre in her hometown of Calgary. From childhood, there had been interested in 'the bigger questions of life', & how the answers might contribute to a kinder world. Through the study of Raja Yoga, a spiritual practice, Judi feels she has not only found the answers she sought, but re-awakened a capacity we all have for deep contentment, peace & stability.

In addition to currently serving as the Centre Coordinator for the Brahma Kumaris Centre in Calgary, Judi works as a graphic designer & fitness instructor. Although it may seem that the intensity & noisiness of fitness, & the stillness & silence of contemplation are incompatible, she has found that the opposite is true...that they actually enhance each other & create a sense of well-being when integrated.

The Brahma Kumaris organisation is a worldwide spiritual movement dedicated to personal transformation & world renewal. Founded in India in 1937, Brahma Kumaris has spread to over 110 countries on all continents & has had an extensive impact in many sectors as an international NGO. However, their real commitment is to helping individuals transform their perspective of the world from material to spiritual. It supports the cultivation of a deep collective consciousness of peace & of the individual dignity of each soul.

Janice Chalmers-Massinon is happy to call Drumheller her hometown. She was born and raised here in the Valley. Life and work took her away to the City of Calgary where she raised her daughter Calsea. She worked for the Calgary Fire Department as an emergency communications officer and then furthered her career as a supervisor for Public Safety Communications (911). Her career of 20 years enabled her to work, play and meet so many amazing people. She is forever grateful that she was able to be a part of this culture….and she can instantly amuse you with some of the stories!! She then decided to redirect her life…(or maybe it redirected her)…moving back to Drumheller, getting married & starting a whole new life...basically! She read this quote one day still feeling jittery after leaving her six figure job...."If you get a chance, take it...If it changes your life, let it". She read that quote every single day...and hoped like heck...she could do it! 

She was so fortunate to be able to return to school…. finished her full time studies at Canadian School of Natural Nutrition with a Certified Holistic nutritionist designation. This was a huge change from her former shift working, fast food eating, adrenaline pumping life! And ultimately crazy unhealthy! She now owns Peak Holistic Nutrition and specialises in easing adrenal fatigue, stress management through diet and nutritional consulting. She love, love, loves cooking! Her kitchen is always in "test" kitchen mode! Her family groans at the mention of Kale and Quinoa…so she is very creative in adding "nourishment" to her creations! Her projects have included mountain retreats in Canmore & Panorama, cooking school for fun at Highbanks Society in Calgary and healthy culinary coaching for clients. She also volunteers for the Calgary Holistic Society making meals for families at Ronald McDonald House at Alberta Children's Hospital.

Amber Leavitt is a working mother of three. The day that she found out she was pregnant with her first child in 2004, she realised that she wanted to live a healthy lifestyle so that she could be around to see her children grow up & have children of their own…but still didn't take any steps towards that new lifestyle until March 2012 when her best friend invited her to an MLM party for a company selling health products. The company's marketing strategy was to challenge their clients to choose a 90 day health goal & Amber decided this challenge was the perfect opportunity to keep her accountable to her goal of becoming healthier & more active! The challenges kept Amber going and with each new 90 day challenge, she incorporated different aspects of health or fitness & did a lot of research to find out what best suited her, her body & her lifestyle. Fitness really did become her lifestyle & she began to set longer term goals such as competing in bodybuilding competitions & getting certified as a Personal Trainer. She started to train others so that she could share her passion for fitness & since becoming certified she found new passion in helping others achieve their own health & fitness goals. She loves creating relationships with her clients; showing them how to find "fun" in working out & watching them make lifestyle changes that give priority to health & fitness in their own everyday lives. She is inspired everyday by those that she works with & loves seeing them motivate & inspire their own family & friends. It is her mission to help others find their passion in fitness & achieve their health & fitness goals.

Trail of Trees lights up the Badlands Community Facility with the Family Fun Committee!

The Town of Drumheller, the Badlands Community Facility and Family Fun Committee invite you to celebrate the magic of the holiday season and the spirit of giving with us. Between November 30th and Dec 16th the Badlands Community Facility will be decking it's halls with beautiful Christmas trees, turning the community facility into a magical Christmas dreamland.

The Town of Drumheller invites businesses, community organisations and families to donate and decorate an artificial Christmas tree which will be displayed in the Trail of Trees at the Badlands Community Facility. This year, we will host a silent auction for the trees, with the proceeds going to JumpStart. The community has identified that youth programs, transportation and equipment can be expensive. So this year, we give back to the youth! 

The event will be launched on Friday November 30th with a fun community event with people checking out the trees, carollers singing and hot chocolate and cookies. Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus will also be making a special trip from the North Pole! Family Fun Committee, FCSS and The Drumheller Public Library will be setting up some fun things to in the Library and Multipurpose Rooms. Tricia Hatch School of Dance will also be putting on a special performance in our lower lobby!

Why should you take part?

  • This is a wonderful opportunity for businesses and organisations to promote themselves to the 300+ people a day going through the BCF.
  • Your business/group/self will be recognised as a business with a great community spirit as they give to those most in need this holiday season.
  • Proceeds from the Tree Auction go toward Canadian Tire JumpStart program that will help supplement youth in recreation programs
  • The cost of a tree and the decorations offers great value for money; creating a greater return than traditional advertising
  • Fun, friendly competition among the community

Your role in the program:

  • Contact Erica Crocker at the Badlands Community Facility to register your spot ecrocker@dinosaurvalley.com or sign up online (below)
  • Donate a tree, bring it to the BCF and decorate it on Friday November 30th from 10:00AM – 7:00PM.
  • Your decorations can link with your business or be more of the traditional decorations or a mixture of the 2. If you would rather keep your decorated tree, that is fine too!

We will:

  • Promote the event and highlight all the businesses and organisations which take part in this great program
  • Create labels for each tree stating the company who donated it
  • To provide all the power needed to run lights
  • Run a silent auction for the 18 days the trees are up, with all proceeds going to Drumheller Canadian Tire's Jumpstart Program, to assist families with youth in need! http://jumpstart.canadiantire.ca/content/microsites/jumpstart/en/faq.html
  • Have an evening with Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus on December 1st from 5:00PM – 7:00PM, as well as complimentary snacks
  • Offer a confidential platform to families in need of a Christmas tree to ensure they have one this year

"This event has proven very successful in other communities, so we wanted to do something similar. The Town of Drumheller is very excited to put their own flare into this festive initiative." says Darren Goldthorpe Manager of Arts Culture and Recreation. "We had so much success last year; we hope to keep this a running tradition for years to come."
