Join us for a FREE six week series and benefit from gentle movement, breathing, and relaxation exercises. This series, specifically designed for people with pain, will teach you how to move safely, and with greater ease. Sessions run on Thursdays from 1.30pm - 3pm.

To enroll, you must be referred by a doctor. In Tofino, call: Tonquin Medical Clinic 250-725-3282 or speak with a community or home care nurse for assistance.

You can request a referral to this class series if: 
• You suffer from chronic pain
• You can walk—on your own, or with a support like a cane
• You can lie down on the ground and stand back up—on your own, or with a support like a chair
• You can stay balanced on two feet—on your own, or with a support like a walker

This same workshop series is running in Ucluelet and Ahousaht.
