Perri Van Rossem’s Pelvic Floor Workshop with Amara Vidya

 

 

Join Certified Yoga Therapist Perri van Rossem to learn why the pelvic floor is one of the most important muscle groups in the human body. Discover how it is that it supports the base structure of the spine, our urinary and defecator functions, and it how plays an integral role in our overall energy levels. You will learn through understanding, refining your perception, and engaging with your pelvic floor how you can both strengthen and relax these vital tissues as needed.

In this workshop Perri will introduce you to the pelvic floor from an anatomical perspective.

Gananoque Ontario | September events 2017

Happy Labour day!

 

 

Labour Day (Labor Day in the United States) is an annual holiday to celebrate the achievements of workers. For most countries, Labour Day is synonymous with, or linked with, International Workers’ Day, which occurs on 1 May.
In Canada and the United States, Labour Day is celebrated on the first Monday of September and considered the unofficial end of summer, with summer vacations ending and students returning to school around then.

The form for the celebration of Labor Day was outlined in the first proposal for the holiday: A street parade to exhibit to the public “the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations”, followed by a festival for the workers and their friends and families. This became the pattern for Labor Day celebrations. Speeches by prominent men and women were introduced later, as more emphasis was placed upon the civil significance of the holiday. Still later, by a resolution of the American Federation of Labor convention of 1909, the Sunday preceding Labor Day was adopted as Labor Sunday and dedicated to the spiritual and educational aspects of the Labor movement.

Labor Day is called the “unofficial end of summer” because it marks the end of the cultural summer season. Many take their two-week vacations during the two weeks ending Labor Day weekend. Many fall activities, such as school and sports begin about this time.

Gananoque’s Farmer’s Market

 

 

Willa Mamet + Paul Miller: two voices and a guitar, like you’re at the kitchen table with us. Folk, country, Americana, and grassy soul. All at the beautiful farmer’s market of this wonderful community. Come enjoy!

Hear what Patti LuPone calls “heartbreaking, ancient” – and what Vermont Public Radio’s Robert Resnik loves so much: “This music deserves to be preserved, and celebrated, and performed. Willa Mamet and Paul Miller have exactly what it takes to get the job done, and the pleasure is in the delivery – at their best, Willa Mamet and Paul Miller invite you into that Vermont kitchen when they first found musical magic so many years ago. Come listen to some fine music masterfully played and sung.” -Robert Resnik, Vermont Public Radio

Carolyn Fe at Gananoque’s Royal Theatre

 

 

The last time Carolyn Fe Blues Collective, played the newly renovated historic The Royal Theatre, Thousand Islands was in an acoustic trio format. This time around get the FULL BAND experience! Songs from their award winning 3 albums, PLUS a sneak peak…errr, a sneak listen to a few more songs from their upcoming album! From the crowd’s reactions the last time, you best get your tickets early because this time around, they’ll sell out fast!

Some history about the theatre: Built in 1930 by the Delaney family as a Vaudeville House, this all poured-concrete structure was one of the first “fire-proof” buildings ever conceived in North America. The Great Depression slowed the family’s progress with their new theatre venture, however, and it was not until 1937 that the doors were opened to patrons.

The venue hosted live acts and popular movies until 1960, when it was converted to a bowling alley. Proprietor and Founding Artistic Director Kevin John Saylor purchased the imposing old building in 2013. The spirit of community he discovered in Gananoque was immediately inviting, and the fact that the town was already a theatre destination (home of the Thousand Islands Playhouse) and very famous as the “Gateway to the Thousand Islands”, made relocating an easy decision.

Elvis & Buddy Holly Tribute

 

 

Gary Wesley has performed throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, Chile, and South America. He has performed with Las Vegas Productions such as Legends in Concert, American Super Stars, Legends Alive and many others. 2016 is Garry’s 28th year performing at Alfred’s on Beale Street. He has performed with the Legendary Jordanaires, The Blackwood Brothers Quartet, The Sweet Inspirations, Millie Kirkham, DJ Fontana and Joe Esposito. Gary not only bears a striking resemblance to Elvis but he has perfected those famous gyrating moves and has an impeccable voice.

Jeff Scott entered the Tribute industry literally overnight. It began with a phone call on a cold February afternoon. By the end of the conversation, Jeff was heading to Las Vegas to join the successful Kokomo Beach Band, (a Beach Boys tribute band), where his love for 60’s pop would fit like a glove. Touring the US and Canada, the highlight of the trip would be a series of shows on the Vegas Strip, including The Sands, Aladdin, and Circus Circus.

Happy Mother’s Day  2017!

 

 

Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May.

 

Background
Early Mother’s Day celebrations can be dated back to the spring celebrations to honor Rhea, the Mother of the Gods, in ancient Greek civilization, according to some sources. Later, Mothering Sunday in the United Kingdom was traditionally a day for people to visit the church where they were baptized, although it now also celebrates motherhood in modern times.

Symbol
Early celebrations of Mother’s Day originated from Canada’s neighboring country, the United States. Carnations are a popular Mother’s Day symbol in both Canada and the United States. Some people may choose to wear a carnation as a brooch on Mother’s Day. However, other flowers are also given to mothers or mother figures to symbolize one’s love and appreciation for them.

What do people do on Mother’s day?
Many people remember their mothers and mother figures on Mother’s Day.
Some people give cards, flowers, or chocolates, and/or make handmade items or special meals on Mother’s Day. Others take their mothers or mother figures to the movies, a restaurant, café, or a day in a park. Some mothers and mother figures also receive special gifts such as jewelry, clothing, accessories, and gift vouchers for services or products.

Mother’s Day falls on different days depending on the countries where it is celebrated. It is held on the second Sunday of May in many countries, such as Australia, Canada and the United States. It is held exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday in the United Kingdom. Sundays are usually non-school and non-working days in these countries.

St Patrick’s Day

 

5

 

St Patrick’s Day is a public holiday in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador on the nearest Monday to March 17 each year. It remembers St Patrick, a missionary who converted many of Ireland’s inhabitants to Christianity in the 5th century. His feast day also celebrates Irish culture.

St Patrick’s Day marks the feast day and anniversary of the death of a Christian missionary known as Patrick. He was born in the year 387, probably somewhere near the present day border between Scotland and England. At the age of 16, he was captured and taken to Ireland as a slave. During this period, he became very religious and after six years he fled back to his family.

St Patrick’s Day celebrations were brought to Canada by Irish immigrants. The day is a bank holiday in Northern Ireland and a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland. In the rest of the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia and New Zealand, it is celebrated, but is not an official holiday.
People who have an Irish background or enjoy Irish culture may hold Irish themed parties and serve traditional dishes, such as Colcannon or Irish stew. Colcannon is a dish of mashed potatoes mixed with kale or cabbage and Irish stew is traditionally made with lamb and root vegetables.

Symbol

The most widely-seen St Patrick’s Day symbols are the colors green, and sometimes orange, and the shamrock. The shamrock is a symbol of Ireland and a registered trademark of the Republic of Ireland. It is the leaf of the clover plant, which grows on the ground, often among grass and an Irish Catholic symbol of the Holy Trinity. It is sometimes confused with the four-leaf clover, which is a variety of the three-leaf clover and is thought to bring good luck.

Valentine’s Day Celebration

 

6

 

Valentine’s Day is a time when people show feelings of love, affection and friendship. It is celebrated in many ways worldwide and falls on February 14, each year.

Valentine’s Day is an opportunity for people to tell somebody that they love them in a romantic way. It falls on February 14, the name day of two saints, St Valentine of Rome and St Valentine of Terni. In pre-Christian times, the middle of February was a time of pagan fertility festivals in Europe and allegedly the time when birds chose a mate.

Many people give gifts to loved ones on Valentine’s Day. Common gifts are:
•    Flowers, particularly red roses.
•    Chocolates and/or candy.
•    Teddy bears.
•    Toy hearts.
•    Sparkling wine.
•    Cosmetics.
•    Clothing, including lingerie.
•    Jewelry.

Many people also thought that birds chose their mates at this time of year. Around the year 1380, the English poet Chaucer wrote a poem for the first anniversary of the engagement of King Richard II to Anne of Bohemia. This is thought to be the first association between celebrations of romantic love and St Valentine’s Day on February 14. The connection remained important throughout the middle ages.

The most common symbols of Valentine’s Day are heart shapes, which are used to decorate many things, including cards, trees, wrapping paper, cookies and gift boxes. Other symbols associated with February 14 are pairs of birds, cute teddy bears, Cupid and his arrows and couples kissing or embracing. The colors red and pink are often associated with Valentine’s Day.
