Celebrate power of positive energy

Women of all ages are invited to honour Gayle Bates in her fight against breast cancer.

Channelling your inner warrior during times of adversity can be a powerful tool.

In recognition of this, IPF director and Bellyfit development team member Leanne Zdebiak-Eni will lead an exhilarating Bellyfit Live class featuring classic Bellyfit moves, plus its new format Bellyfit Warrior.

Studio IPF as well as class sponsors Finneron Hyundai and Long and McQuade invite women of all ages to join them in honouring Gayle Bates in her fight against breast cancer. This is an opportunity to celebrate the power of positive energy and appreciate our own ability to give.

DJ em.ash, (Michael Holding), will spin an inspiring blend of cutting-edge, uplifting dance music.  Bellydance, Bollywood, Bhangra and African are a few of the dance cultures on which Bellyfit draws inspiration for this unique workout.

Developed specifically for women, Bellyfit merges effective and energetic fitness training with the spirit of joy and practice of mindfulness.  Bellyfit Warrior combines a blend of martial arts, and kick boxing into the mix.

Proceeds will directly benefit Gayle Bates.

Admission is by donation this Sunday from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Native Sons Hall. Wear comfortable workout gear, clean running shoes and bring a water bottle and yoga mat, if you have one.

For details, contact Leanne Zdebiak-Eni at leanne@studioipf.com or 250-703-2673.
