Otahpiaaki is asking EV Junction Patrons to help them create 200 pillows for guests attending their fashion showcases in November. It is customary in Blackfoot Culture to give a guests a gift. So when you create a pillow and sign your name, that pillow will be gifted to someone at the showcase. If you attend the showcase in November you will be gifted a pillow from someone else. 


Flow into Fit is a one-hour class that blends yoga and conditioning exercises, including movement & mindfulness, cardiovascular conditioning, and strength building postures. All levels welcome. Please bring a yoga mat and sneakers. 


Come explore the art of acrylic paint with Amela Rizvanovic, a local Calgary artist. She will take you through beginner techniques while you follow along with your very own painting!
