Spring time means viewing art, doing yoga, & going to concerts

To kick off the spring, here are some of the events for this month’s Fourth Friday’s event series!

10 Carden Guelph logo Come experience the uniqueness of A Corner Piece art at 10 Carden as a preview for next month’s art workshop featuring local artist Wayne Matthews. The space will be open from 7 pm to 9 pm.

Living Yoga and Health Guelph logoStudents of all levels are welcome to join a drop-in yoga class at Living Yoga & Health (105 Wyndham St North) from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm. The focus is on breathing and moving with awareness through specific warm-ups to open the body in preparation for the yoga poses being taught. Benefits of poses and modifications for different abilities will be offered.

This class reflects the yoga teaching on self-less service, and is often referred to as Karma Yoga. Teachers give freely of their time, and all funds raised through the “pay-what-you-can” (PWYC) donations ($5 to $10 recommended) are given to support charitable needs within our community. Classes are taught by various teachers.

A veteran of the Canadian music scene, with her genre defying style and indie approach, McLean has carved her own path along the way. Since releasing her debut solo EP “Just Passing Through” in 2005, Ambre has released 3 studio album’s, garnered numerous accolades and has appeared regularly on the Canadian music festival circuit.

“She must have been born to it. Ambre is a brilliant player, a brilliant songwriter and a brilliant performer.”

“McLean’s voice – is an instrument itself: gorgeous, sometimes with a rich, bluesy feel, other times a sweet mellow sound, alternatively soft and ferocious, always carrying these tunes straight to your musical heart.”
