Eating, A Traveling exhibition @ Jasper Community Habitat for the Arts
Jun 20 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Heather Buchanan is an Artist/Painter from Calgary who mostly paints realistic comic renditions of famous people. She targets famous characters in pop culture for much of her work. Her last exhibition in Calgary was entitled Calling with over 60 works depicting famous people being fake people talking on fake telephones. For this exhibition Buchanan has produced 15 new works depicting famous people as fake people from pop culture eating fake food. The exhibition will simply be called Eating and will feature colourful acrylic paintings of characters that most people will recognise and relate to. It promises to be fun and entertaining.

This is an Alberta Foundation for the Arts traveling exhibit from the Grande Prairie Art Gallery.

Živjo to our Friends & Family! Hana and Kyle are getting hitched and would like to invite you to “Petek v Parku” on Friday June 21, 2019 in the heart of one of our favourite cities, Ljubljana.

We want to spend the day with you; celebrating a lifetime of love, friendship, ice cream, water balloon fights, jetlag, small moments, big adventures, super-sized dreams and the summer solstice. What a day it will be!

Please join us at Zvezda Café (located on Congress Square, Ljubljana) between 2pm – 3pm for ice cream, ice cream and probably some more ice cream. When the clock tower strikes 3pm everyone will walk to nearby Tivoli Park for the festivities.

Our, party in the park is for everyone. Bring your kids, dogs, cats, guitars and a sense of adventure.

Don’t worry about saying “yes” or “no” right now, we just wanted to let you all in on our plan with plenty of time to prepare should you want to “Petek v Parku” with us.

See you in Slovenia (and hopefully before that as well)!

Kyle & Hana
PS: There will be more details to come… but not a lot more. Because really, how many details does a person need to petek themselves in parku on a beautiful, summer day?

Choral Days with Jane Berry @ Jasper Community Habitat for the Arts
Jul 24 @ 10:00 am – Jul 25 @ 6:00 pm

Take a two day workshop in voice and physical expression!

In two days Jane will walk students through a musical repertoire that will expose them to simple choral arrangements of current popular songs while the vocal techniques that they will learn will blend classical and popular styles of singing.
She will bring some choral arrangements of her own to work with the group while having them design a work of their own over the two days.
She also brings elements of movement and physical expression into the work so this workshop will appeal to anyone who is interested in theatre as well.

“What I really love doing is building confidence in singers and getting them to express themselves in ways, and pertaining to topics, that they find important. I love the challenge of working with individuals of varying skill and knowledge levels and when they create music I get them to develop abstract scores so there really is no need for knowledge of music notation or singing experience.”

Jane Berry moved to Edmonton to start her PhD of Philosophy in Music Theory in the fall of 2011. Shortly after her arrival she began singing with Pro Coro Canada and quickly became integrated within the local choral community. She is the director of ETown Minors (a choir developed for at risk youth), section lead for ETown Augmented and in-house arranger for both groups. She is co-founder of Femme vocal ensemble, has taught a number of courses at the University of Alberta, sings with various new music ensembles, volunteers with local youth and works as a composer and visual artist.
Jane holds a Masters of Arts in Music Theory from the University of Ottawa (2011), a Bachelors of Music in Composition from Acadia University (2005), and is currently working on a degree in Education at the University of Alberta.

Fall Program – 200 Hour Abhaya Yoga Teacher Training Jasper @ Jasper Wellness
Sep 20 @ 7:00 am – Sep 20 @ 6:30 pm

Abhaya 200 Hour Interdisciplinary Yoga Teacher Training:

Yoga is a continually evolving practice, as we combine practice with intention and our everyday life, we can find a harmonious balance of yoga on and off of the mat.

What was once presented as the do’s and don’t of yoga may not translate to the world we live in today.

Over the years we have learned from many traditional gurus, and have seen yoga become mainstream.

There are a multitude of practices and modalities associated with the word yoga therefore we will study Eastern & Western traditions of body, mind and spiritual practice.

This teacher training will take a non-authoritative approach to teaching yoga so that the practitioner can evolve and develop his or her own style and approach to the practice, being able to speak from one’s own experience.

Our hope is that you will be able to experiment during this training to discover who you are at the core of your being, and use this to influence your own personal practice and growth, or pass on knowledge and passion as a yoga instructor.


Join Jasper locals Marla Pollock, Steph Sophocleous & Jenna McGrath plus guest teachers as they take you on a journey of self exploration and discovery.

This training will give you broad knowledge, and a solid base to begin your personal or professional yogic journey. This training will leave you with your 200 Hour Yoga Teaching Certification that you may use to certify with the Yoga Alliance. Our program is fully accredited by the Yoga Alliance.

Topics covered in depth for a solid understanding and base in:

– History of Yoga
– Meditation
– Pranayama
– The 8 Limbs of Yoga
– The Yoga Sutras
– Yamas & Niamas
– Bhandas
– Chakras
– Anatomy ( including contraindications & postural imbalances)
– Postures
– Adapting class for life stages
– Ethics
– Sanskrit
– Flow of postures and Sequence

Interdisciplinary Teachings of Hatha, Flow (Vinyasa), YIN, plus exploration other methods and styles of yoga.
