July Programs and Events

June was a busy time with the celebration of Seniors Month, Pride, Fathers Day, and more!

As we enter July and the peak of summer time, we continue to enjoy the beautiful whether and the opportunities to get outside and be active.


See below to learn about the age-friendly activities that target overall health and well-being throughout the month of July. The following items are facilitated by Golden Age Management owner, Michelle Jamieson.



Active Aging Social Club

The next next Active Aging Social Club will be taking place on July 5th from 1:30p.m. - 3:00p.m. at Chaiiwala of London - Brantford. We have welcomed a number of new and returning individuals to the club, have shared wonderful discussions and connected to various other community resources and events.


If you are brand new to the Active Aging Social Club, here's what you need to know:

Owner of Golden Age Management, Michelle, received funding from the Community Changemakers Program offered by the City of Brantford, in partnership with Wilfrid Laurier University in Fall 2023. This funding provided the foundations for a vision Michelle has: to offer an inclusive social group for older adults that is free, accessible, non-task based and hosted in a public space.


The club will provide free teas and treats, as well as social prompts to break the ice among participants! Attendance is by registration only, so please contact Michelle directly or sign up through the website by clicking here.


Yoga Class: Meditation & Restorative

Registered Yoga Teacher, Michelle, continues to offer age-friendly yoga classes at Sacred Spaces in Brantford. Sacred Spaces Brantford is a wellness center, offering massage therapy and yoga classes. Starting in the month of June, Michelle will be exclusively offering the Thursday evening restorative class


The yoga studio offers classes daily for ANY BODY. This particular class is perfect for those wanting to destress and practice mindfulness. The class combines guided meditation and restorative postures to leave you feeling peaceful and at ease. You can sign up for the 'Sacred Soulful Thursdays' restorative class here.


Outdoor Seniors Social Club

The City of Brantford has partnered with community-based businesses and non-profit organizations to offer their Healthy Aging Passport from June 3rd to July 31st. These free programs promote healthy aging and social engagement amongst individuals aged 55 years and above. Golden Age Management will be hosting two social programs taking place at Mohawk Park. The City of Brantford will generously be covering the costs of coffee and treats.


The next session will be taking place July 27th from 10:00a.m. - 11:30a.m. The group will be gathering at Shelter D, which is next to the parking lot closest to Mohawk Lake, next to the Snack Bar.
