Wellness Education Webinars

Nutrition Essentials 🎥

In this workshop we will bust common myths surrounding nutrition trends, break down macronutrients to understand how they affect our bodies, as well as learn take-home tools and techniques for planning your own diet to best suit your nutritional needs and fitness goals.


Yoga for Healing 🎥

Trauma comes in many forms, and everybody processes and copes differently. You may be struggling returning to a sense of 'normal' following COVID-19. Learn breathing techniques and postures to aid in healing in this mindful practice.


Wellness Initiative 🎥

The wellness initiative is a 10-week program that will focus on developing habits to enhance the eight aspects of wellness. Along with a weekly deep dive into specific wellness concepts, there are several smaller activities given as assignments. These assignments are there to enhance each of the highlighted areas of wellness. Some examples will include posting on social media, in person activities, and/or self-reflection to ensure you are getting the most out of the seminars. Finally, we will have live chats with a trainer to help you with any questions you have throughout the program.


  🎥 indicates class is also offered virtually.

Private swim lessons

Led by our highly trained instructors, these sessions are ideal for anyone wanting personalized instruction to improve their swimming. Lessons are tailored to each individual or group. The cost of the lesson is the same for single participant or a group - so grab a friend and swim for half the cost! Lessons are 30 minutes with a maximum of three participants per group. We suggest that individuals participating are similar in swimming skills to optimize their time with the instructor.

After arranging payment, please email aquatics@macewan.ca or call 780-497-4616 to book your lessons.
