Tonight we’re doing a yoga class with Diane Rizzardo, a physiotherapist and yoga teacher from Metrotown Physio!
Wear comfy clothes and no socks, and make sure you are set up with enough space on the floor that you could stretch out and lay down. Yoga mats are helpful, but not necessary. It’d also be helpful if you are able to enable your camera for tonight’s meeting, so Diane can see who’s in the room and offer support and advice on the poses we’ll work through.
See you at 7 pm!

The City of Vancouver wants to hear what youth think of the 19 proposed climate actions that the city is considering to tackle the climate emergency, while making our city more resilient and livable for generations to come.
Host your own Climate Emergency virtual dialogue using this online survey. All you need to do is meet your friends on your favourite video conferencing tool, share your screen and walk through the survey together.
High school students in Metro Vancouver who host a dialogue and submit the feedback can be formally recognized for 2-hours of community service.

Let’s send some kind and encouraging words out into the people in our world. Why not surprise someone in your community with a positive, empowering message… on a rock! or a window sign! or get out your sidewalk chalk and send a message to your neighbourhood!
Hearing positive messages can boost your self-acceptance and confidence, so spreading them around is a great way to lift up the people you care about. The Kindness Rocks Project was started to surprise people with random acts of kindness.
Homework this week: Inspire and share positive messages with others through decorating your own rock, sign, window sign, sidewalk, post-it note…whatever! Leave it in a visible place and take a photo to share with the group. Email your photos to the leaders by April 14.
