Recreation Classes with Friends in the Park:

My friends and I are taking the time to exercise together (while 6 feet apart) in the local park. We partake in online High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), and yoga classes together. We've also been getting very creative with our virtual gatherings! We've been having online craft nights, game nights and themed parties all through our computers. I think I'm seeing more of my friends virtually than I have in person in a long time!

Here at Langara, our Faculty have been prioritizing their wellbeing through recreation – even in online courses! Here’s an example with Paramita Banerjee in the Faculty of Nursing, leading by example in her online course to show students the importance of maintaining their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing through recreation (in this case, yoga and improvised weight training) as we live, work and study from home.
