MORE CAMPUS WELLNESS INITIATIVES

In a culture where we sit in one posture for hours on end, the muscles in our body tend to tense up. Looking to ease the stress and strain that comes along with a regular workday? The Registered Massage Therapy Certificate Program is offering one-hour massage therapy clinics at a rate of $20 for employees. As a participant, you will receive assessment and treatment from a supervised student in a learning setting. In addition to enjoying the treatment, you will also provide student therapists with an opportunity to hone their skills and build confidence. Please click here to visit the Registered Massage Therapy site and access the clinic schedule.

Please note: All intramurals are currently cancelled due to COVID-19.

Langara employees are invited to participate in weekday intramural activities in the Langara gymnasium, including: badminton, basketball, indoor soccer, volleyball. Want to coordinate a game of ladder golf, bocce, or croquet with your colleagues instead? Complimentary rentals for lawn use are also available. Check out the schedule and offerings on the Intramurals site.

Bicycling is a healthy, inexpensive, environmentally-friendly, and enjoyable commute alternative. Langara is situated near several traffic-calmed bicycle routes; employees can also combine bicycling with transit use. Bike racks are located throughout campus, and a secure bicycle parking cage is located on level P1 of the underground parkade (access card required). Shower facilities are located next to the secure bicycle parking cage, in the gymnasium, and in the basement of Building C (C012 and C013). To obtain an access card for the parking cage, or to learn about the HUB Streetwise Cycling and bike maintenance workshops for employees, contact Raymond Yeung at ryeung@langara.bc.ca. For help with bicycle route planning or finding a cycle buddy, contact Fulton Tom at ftom@langara.bc.ca.
