Yoga For Nordic Skiers

Balu Yoga is offering Nordic-specific yoga classes this fall!
Classes Start on Monday, September 12, 2016

The practice of yoga can help prevent injury by teaching you techniques that help you become more embodied giving you a greater understanding of how to move your body in a way that supports your overall well being. Skiing is a sport that builds lots of lower body strength and the practice of yoga helps with building upper body strength while also stretching out your lower body to aid in increased mobility. Also helps build equilibrium in the body, we tend to have areas in our body that compensates for weaker areas, and with the practice of yoga you can learn to become more balanced in your body which benefits not only skiing, but also the emotional imbalances we are meet with at different times of our lives and different times of the year.

Dates: Classes are held on Monday nights, September 12th -November 28th, 2016 (Note: no class on Halloween Monday)

Time: 7:30pm-8:45pm

Cost: $121

Annual General Meeting

I know, it sounds boring, but a) it won’t be and b) the Club needs you to come!  Why?  I’m glad you asked.

The Club needs a critical mass of members at the AGM to be eligible for funding to pay our Head Coach (the much-loved Matt Smider).

We value your input and opinions on the direction the Club is going.

Lastly, the Club is governed by a volunteer board of directors, which could be YOU someday!  So come, be involved and engaged with the Club you love dearly.

The meeting will be on April 14th, at 7pm in the Day Lodge.  Goodies and hot drinks, of course, will be provided.

Team Scream 2016 Results!

A giant thank you to all the volunteers, skiers and spectators who made this year’s Tropical Team Scream an event to remember.  The costumes, the racing, the food, the timing, the marshalling, the parking, the Bunny Race,  the registration, the bib prep, the cookie medals, the first-aid, the awards and prizes, the poster artwork, the sound system, the photography, the grooming, the clean-up… there were over 30 volunteers and 85 racers!   High-fives all around!  And another one to the sun – that eventually burned through the clouds and turned the day truly tropical!  – Eleanor Wilson

A very big THANK YOU to Eleanor for bringing such a great event together; we all had a great time!
