On Wednesday, November 17, 2021, our RISE group hosted their first virtual yoga event from 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM. Staff received the chance to rebuild their mind-muscle connections, stretch out their shoulders, and improve mobility among other things. The class was led by our very own Project Manager and avid yogini of 20 years, Jennifer Webster, AScT.
Admission to the event involved a donation that was directed to YWCA Metro Vancouver, an organization that Jennifer is passionate about. YWCA’s mission is to touch lives and build better futures for women and their families through advocacy and integrated services. Attendees signed up to participate and half the proceeds were donated to the YWCA.
