Get Out There and Move at Mount-Royal Park

Posted by Christine / May 8, 2013

CCAC_Bougez-poster_letter_small-791x1024.jpg Register now for Get Out There and Move, a day of athletic activities hosted by professionals happening this Saturday at Mount-Royal Park between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

Get Out There and Move is presented by the Colorectal Cancer Association of Canada (CCAC) with the aim of advocating healthy lifestyles and cancer prevention.

With a minimum donation of $25, participants, whether as individuals or teams, may partake in Get Out There and Move's offered activities. They also have the option of doing activities on their own (walking, jogging, bicycling, hiking, etc).

After they've completed their day's activities, participants may reconvene at the Pavillon du Lac-aux-Castors to pick up their free healthy lunch bag filled with their choice of sandwiches, yogurt, fruit, and juice. CCAC staff and educators will be on-site answering questions and handing out information on colorectal cancer, its prevention, and the importance of getting screened for this disease.

I had the chance to interview Kim Harper, a yoga and pilates instructor who will be teaching classes at Get Out There and Move:

Why should people attend the event?

"It's a great way to be active, have fun, and raise awareness and money for a great cause."

What will you be doing at the Get Out There and Move?

"I will be teaching a 1-hour Hatha yoga class at 9:30 a.m., which is specially designed for the developing yoga practitioner. It is slow-paced, gentle, and focused on breathing and meditation. This is a good form of yoga for beginners to learn poses, relaxation techniques, and become comfortable with yoga. I will also be teaching a 1-hour pilates class at 11:30 a.m. Pilates helps condition the body, while building flexibility, muscle strength in the legs, abdominals, arms, hips, and back. It puts emphasis on spinal and pelvic alignment developing a strong core and improving coordination and balance."

What are your hopes for the event?

"I hope that with this event, we can spread awareness and raise money for a great cause as well as show people how important it is to be active. Being active can significantly reduce your chances of getting cancer. I'm hoping people have a chance to try out the variety of fitness classes and maybe find one they enjoy, so they can keep working at it and aspire to live a healthy lifestyle."

Why is yoga important?

"Yoga is so important for many reasons. The obvious reasons are that it helps you with daily stresses and anxieties. It's also a great way for people to take time out for themselves and focus inward. Yoga has so many health benefits such as improving strength, flexibility, and coordination. It helps to tone muscles. It also helps with weight loss, it reduces the risk of heart disease, and controls high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes."

What are your future goals with yoga?

"My future goals with yoga are to be teaching as much as I can on a daily basis and sharing my practice and knowledge with others. I also am looking to open my own studio in the West Island in the near future."

Another oDesk tip is to make suggestions and accordingly take a look at when choosing a contractor consumers in lawsuits alleging torture.

These guidelines underwent some additional time and the dangers
that could mean doing the job. Now while hiring professional contractors, apart from
this policy is determined by how naive or gullible homeowners can do the work
they do not mind doing it yourself Repairs?

Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Taking a
few minutes and actual effort to create a superb article… but
what can I say… I hesitate a lot and don't seem to get anything done.

This design is incredible! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Wonderful job.
I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

Too cool!
