May Programs and Events

Updated: May 1

April showers have brought the May flowers! The weather is consistently getting warmer, and there's no doubt the days are getting longer. We are getting ready to spend more time outside and enjoying the sunshine.


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



Active Aging Social Club

Our second Active Aging Social Club is happening this Friday, May 3rd! As you may know, 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 provides 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.

This club will be taking place on the first Friday of every month from 1:30p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Steve's Artisan Teas until the end of summer. 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: Hatha Flow (Sthira & Sukha)

Registered Yoga Teacher, Michelle, continues to offer this age-friendly yoga class at Sacred Spaces in Brantford every Monday night from 7:00 to 8:00 pm. Sacred Spaces Brantford is a wellness center, offering massage therapy and yoga classes. The yoga studio offers classes daily for ANY BODY. This particular class aims to balance both the Sthira and Sukha of our asana practice, we start to see the effects in our daily lives. Sthira is the Sanskrit word for "steadiness," "stability," and "effort." Sukha is the Sanskrit for "sweetness," "joy," and "ease." In the Hatha-style class, we will hold traditional asana poses while incorporating gentle movement to improve overall strength and flexibility. You will feel both the heating and cooling effects of this flow. You can sign up for the Rest and Restore class here.
