I am a passionate fan of community work!
I’ve worked many jobs in both BC and
Alberta, including the Calgary Zoo, the
Vancouver Aquarium and The Stanley Park Ecology
Society. These positions allowed me to do what I loved
most - teaching youth about the environment and
sustainability.
I’ve been working at Kitsilano Community centre for over
4 years and I get to do some of what I love here, too.
You’ll catch me either in one of the two gardens, teaching
in one of the art/science camps, hanging out with TLC,
behind the front desk...or the youth lounge where I’m
planning my next great project or coordinating volunteers
for one of many fun events. We’re always looking for a few

to gain some great experience and want to meet new
people come on in and ask for a volunteer application

Do you buy your shirts two sizes too big? Tie your
sweater around your waist? Avoid tucking in your shirt?
Come and regain your confidence about your waistline!
I developed the Bermuda Triangle based on the regular
question from my participants; What can I do about
my waist? The question was so frequent that I thought
it’s like a mystery for people; they want to change the
shape of their body but don’t know how. The Bermuda
Triangle was born. I imagined a triangle, the top point at
your chin and the bottom ending at your knees. We work
everything within the triangle: the mid-section, chest &
back, thighs, and buttocks. Work hard and watch your
own natural “girdle” pull your waistline in! You will also be
given easy exercises to take home with you that you can
fit into your everyday life. Drop-in $14. No class Feb 7 &

Body Rolling
Instead of relying on a massage or a physical therapist
for deep release, the Body Rolling Program is a selftreatment where YOU are in charge. Rolling & lying on
a small inflatable ball, your body weight creates a force
that relaxes and stretches muscles and myofascia tissue.
The myofascia is a continuous network of connective
tissue that wraps around every living cell in your body
and accounts for over 40% of the total resistance to
movement. Static stretching mainly affects muscles and
tendons. This program is a powerful tool that follows the
neuromuscular system, releasing energy up the spine,
freeing muscles and myofascia while stimulating all
nerve roots. Drop in $14. No class Feb 7 & Mar 21.

People get frustrated using computers because, over

Skype. This course will teach the required basic skills

give the confidence to use modern technology without
fear, paving the way to use and understand other related
devices, (such as mobile smartphones, and tablets),
which, in our current society, are a must, and,( in the case
of older or fragile individuals), it is a matter of safety or
