“In Ottawa, we have been keeping going our yoga and meditation classes in both Carleton University and University of Ottawa. In both institutions, our clubs–Carleton University Ananda Marga Yoga and Meditation Club; University of Ottawa Ananda Marga Yoga and Meditation Club–do have regular yoga and meditation sessions twice a week as their main activities.
The effort put in running these two clubs is rewarding; on both campuses our visibility is growing. This year, mental health societies counted us among the on-campus resources and that has enabled us to partake in the health awareness week series on both campuses.
In Gatineau (on the other bank of the Ottawa River) we had our first phase seminar on Saturday February 17. We were eleven altogether; two brother came from Montreal. The venue is very suitable and well located; we have decided to rent it again for our future seminars; the next one is scheduled for Saturday September 22.”
