Happy March! It is finally time to welcome Spring on March 19th. Spring brings longer days, sunny crisp mornings and blooming flowers.

Join us for River District Nights featuring Un-WINEd with an un-wine-ding Yoga Class + a Glass of wine (or beer) at our VIP table at Romer’s. Invite your friends to stretch, breathe and sip your way to relaxation. Whether you’re a yogi or a lover of wine, Un-WINEd offers the luxury of both. Join us!

​​​​​​​We’re thrilled to announce the River District Golden Easter Celebration is coming back on Sunday, April 12th! Last year our free egg hunt spots filled up in just hours and you’ll want to be sure to reserve your spot this year. Stay tuned to our FaceBook and Instagram pages for updates on this year’s egg hunt coming later this month.

Please join Hon. George Chow, MLA and Translink on Saturday, April 4th for a Community Open House as they share some exciting news with us on transit services to River District.

Ladies Night: Self Care Tips

Last month, we hosted a Self Care session where we joined in a circle to relax and learn about meditation, emotional freedom technique (EFT) and Quantum touch healing with essential oils. It was a great opportunity to sample different self-care practices. 

If you are looking for a regular self-care practice, an opportunity to connect, relax and align, please let us know if you would like to see a meditation group added to the River District Neighbourhood Centre’s schedule. Drop us a line.
