Outdoor yoga class

Are you looking for an outdoor Yoga class? Instructor Cynthia Anonuevo, RYT, is introducing an outdoor beginner Vinyasa Flow Yoga class at the Rossglen Park in lower Rossland starting this week.

The weekly class will run on Wednesdays, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. until July 31. Classes will combine flowing progressions from one pose to another, as well as sustained postures with attention to basic alignment and therapeutic principles.

These drop-in classes are by donation with all proceeds being donated to the Rossland Food Bank. Please contact Rossland Recreation, at 362-2327 for more information.

Updates on fields

Due to the high levels of precipitation we received in May and June, the Recreation Department posts updates about the field conditions each day on Facebook and bhubble.

Consider “liking” the recreation page and you’ll receive our updates immediately. We appreciate your patience and understanding when the fields are closed.

Although closures are annoying, it does ensure the fields stay in good playing condition for the rest of the season.

Burlesque

Canadian Burlesque and Cabaret legend Sasha Van Bon Bon is coming to Rossland on Friday, June 14 in the Rossland Art Gallery.

Doors open at 7:45 p.m. and tickets are $15 in advance at RossVegas.

Last Home Alone

The last Home Alone course before summer is being offered on Wednesday, June 12 from 6-8:30 p.m.

This is a great course to prepare your child for summer and times that they may be left alone, at home.  The program provides them with the skills they need to feel safe and confident in stressful situations, household mishaps and in the event of an emergency.

This course is for children ages 10-13 years.

Corelating

Corelates at the Miners Hall on Tuesday and Thursday mornings has ended due to low registration numbers, although the Instructor may be offering the program in her Studio, Out of Bounds Fitness, on Columbia Ave, below Subway.
