Frontline Community Services

Yoga in the Park
Frontline Community Services offers programs and services to under-served individuals such as seniors, newcomers, people with disabilities, women, children, and youth within Scarborough North Community. Our organization is well aware of the endless emotional and physical disorders that our community faces due to unhealthy lifestyle choices and how the practice of Yoga can help them overcome these problems and lead a healthy lifestyle. Recent studies show that children and youth are also victims of stress, anxiety, digestive disorders, insomnia, etc., due to a highly competitive environment and work culture. Peer-pressure, examination pressure, long working hours, irregular eating habits are a few other causes of a stressful lifestyle. Learning yoga at an early age can have lasting and immense benefits on the overall health and well-being of the children. It is, therefore, our organization has adopted Yoga as a part of our program for all ages to benefit in terms of achieving peace of mind, maintain increased energy levels, improve flexibility, and find inspiration to channelize their energies in the right direction.

To promote and encourage a healthy lifestyle among the community members at a natural environment, we will offer free Yoga at the Neilson Park every day (7 pm - 8 pm) throughout the summer by certified Yoga instructors. This open yoga classes at the park will showcase regular park-goers that everyone are welcome to participate despite their previous knowledge & experiences with yoga. Extra mats will be available to those who want to try out for the very first time.
