A local organization has launched a project to help people access activities supporting mental and physical wellness.
The Tantalus Wellspring Society has launched a community initiative called The Collaboration Project. The society has partnered with local businesses and services to reduce costs so that more people can access the programming.
"Thus far, we have partnerships with Sacred Light Yoga, Shala Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Ground Up Climbing Gym and Brennan Park. Through these partnerships, people can access yoga, climbing and other recreation activities at a reduced cost,” reads a news release from the society.
Shala Yoga is providing several different classes and passes at a 50% discount and Ashtanga Yoga has similar offerings, plus a couple that are reduced by 20%.
Sacred Light Yoga has eight different offerings for different demographics that are reduced by 75%.
Ground Up is offering a free pass for those who may be new to climbing and want to get an opportunity to learn and Brennan Park has donated family and individual passes to share with community members in need.
“This project is supported by the generosity of our partners, donations from community members and a grant from the Squamish Community Foundation,” reads the release. “There is no screening or proof of income required. We believe that people will take only what they need.”
