There’s so much going on!

Local Night At Elements

Balance At Work and One More Yogi recently facilitated Local Night At Elements Restaurant. This was an evening of local community that involved a relaxed exploration of locally-sourced food, local art, local music (Beau Dixon!), and a brief, gentle, yoga-based movement session before dinner. Through the generosity of 36 local businesses and about 30 participants in the evening, we raised almost $800 for Jumping Mouse Nature Education through a silent auction of local goods. The overwhelming generosity of the Peterborough community is one of the reasons I’m proud to call this town my home.

We’ve Found a Home!

Balance At Work is excited to be sharing space with the wonderful folks at the 360 Wellness Clinic in the Ewart O’Dwyer Building on the corner of George and Charlotte Streets in downtown Peterborough (157 Charlotte Street, right next to Wild Rock Outfitters). The new space is currently in renovation and should be ready in time for January’s classes. Stay tuned!
