Shake and sweat for Cumberland Forest

Bellyfit LIVE community fundraiser on Sunday Jan. 31.

Studio IPF: Inner Pursuit Fitness and Finneron Hyundai are hosting another Bellyfit LIVE community fundraiser on Sunday Jan. 31.

This time, they’ll be raising the roof of the Native Sons Hall in support of the Cumberland Community Forest Society. The CCFS is a group of residents dedicated to preserving the Cumberland Forest that borders the Village of Cumberland from Comox Lake to the Trent River.

Their goal is to raise $1,200,000 to protect these lands in perpetuity.

Bellyfit LIVE pairs a DJ with a Bellyfit instructor to create a singularly unique fitness experience. DJ em.ash (AKA Michael Holding), will be playing his signature inspiring blend of cutting edge, uplifting dance music.

African, Bollywood, Bhangra and Bellydance are a few of the dance cultures on which Bellyfit draws inspiration for this fun workout.  A blend of martial arts are also added into the mix. Developed specifically for women, Bellyfit merges effective and energetic dance fitness with the spirit of joy and practice of mindfulness.

Proceeds will directly benefit the Cumberland Community Forest Society. Admission is by donation. The event goes from 1-2:15 p.m. at the Native Sons Hall, 360 Cliffe Ave on Sunday, Jan. 31. Wear comfortable workout gear, clean running shoes and bring a water bottle and yoga mat if you have one. Women and girls aged 12 and over are welcome.

For more info, contact Leanne Zdebiak-Eni at 250-703-2673.
