I have some wonderful news about a new project that my daughter Candice Helin, and I have been working on, with a fitness company in Qualicum Beach.
Our project will be focussing on fitness, cultural awareness and over health and wellness through Tsimshian tribal drumming.
My youngest daughter Candice Helin is a certified trainer and fitness instructor, and she will be leading a higher tempo aerobic tribal dance program along with my more moderate drumming program.
We are in the planning stages with a company called Pole Sisters, and we are very excited to have them facilitating our program.
We will be offering weekly fitness and wellness programs by the hour, for families and individuals of all ages, as well as pre-booking for our exciting four day retreats.
Basic classes will focus on drumming and fitness for all levels, and the retreats will consist of all aspects of drumming, stretching, healing, drum making and design painting.
We are planning wonderful Tsimshian meals and snacks, along with overall wellness and massage services.
Another highlight for next season will be a canoe journey in our new dugout cedar canoe, using paddles made at the retreat facility.
So much to experience and share.
You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or text me at 250–240–1007 for more information.
I will be sharing drumming and wood carving at the North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre until November. Hope to see you there.
