Parkinson Canada is sponsoring a specially curated class to kick off OmTO and welcomes those with Parkinson's (PD), friends, family and loved ones to join in. Yoga is an effective way for those with Parkinson's Disease and their caregivers to increase flexibility and ward off the rigidity associated with PD while reducing the physical, mental, spiritual and emotional challenges of caring for someone who has PD. Elisabeth Kolenko will lead a class that is accessible to everyone and will incorporate balance and stretching in a supportive environment where caregivers and friends are welcome.Buy Tickets

Ariel Swan leads this Feel-Good Flow class which emphasizes the feel of alignment and movement rather than visual appearances or shapes. Slow stretches start to open the body, and we steadily build toward a sweaty place, hitting our mark with a peak song (roughly 2 minutes) where you have the chance to move on your own. We invite you to tune in and listen to what you need at this moment. As we do at Jaybird, this non-traditional workout is done by candlelight in a heated infrared room fueled by good loud music.Buy Tickets
