Update - Yoga on Saturday July 9th is CANCELLED - Rained out! (I'm so incredibly disappointed but don't miss the coming weeks!)
I have the pleasure of being part of an amazing fitness and wellbeing movement (pardon the pun)! My friends at Momentum Moves, in collaboration with the City of Ottawa, are orchestrating something amazing this summer! There will be FREE, fun, bilingual, outdoor activities at Lansdowne Park on Saturdays from 1-2pm for the whole family.
Join me on Saturday July 9th from 1-2pm for a
fun & free
Hatha Yoga class
I loved this idea so much, I simply had to find out more!
I chatted with my friend, Mr. Bill, and here's what I know:
Tell us a bit about Momentum Moves Canada and the kind of places and people you bring movement to.
Momentum Moves primarily delivers curriculum based dance programs to elementary schools in Ontario and Quebec. Each week, you can find Momentum Moves instructors teaching kids to dance, inspiring them to move, feel and think in creative ways. We love to see people move in ways that brings joy to their lives. This motivates us to create opportunities to do so through workshops, classes and special events such as Momentum Saturdays.
What set Momentum Saturdays at Lansdowne in motion?
In 2015, The City of Ottawa officially opened the newly renovated Lansdowne Park. They sought out Momentum Moves to create a unique way for the public to experience the new space. Last year we had our sessions on Fridays at noon, hoping to get people out moving on their lunch hour. Participants asked us to move it to Saturdays to make it more accessible to more people, so we did.
Lansdowne is a hopping place! After working up a sweat, what’s your favourite thing to do at Lansdowne?
We love the diversity of the new space created at Lansdowne. There is room to move, play, relax, workout and eat. We are excited to have our activities on Saturday this year, while there are plenty of other community events happening.
And, most importantly, tell us the deets about Momentum Saturdays!
Getting outside and being active is one of the greatest joys of being Canadian, after being cooped up inside most of the winter. We are delighted to have this opportunity to help people experience being out in a great Ottawa space. These sessions are also great because they are suitable for the entire family to come out and play. We are also happy to offer our instruction in English and French!
Join our Facebook group! Information is updated almost daily with important session details. Every week we will post our session information, such as what to expect, what to bring and where to meet. If you prefer to have information emailed to you directly, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: Add Momentum to my weekend! We will copy you with the Facebook information.
This year, our indoor space in case of rain - Aberdeen Pavilion - is being renovated this summer so sessions may be cancelled if it rains.
