Yoga and Sto:lo lore at Bridal Falls Sunday

Described as 'My Watershed Moment,' the event will see a yoga session together with some traditional knowledge beside a waterfall.

Carrielynn Victor of Cheam Nation is set to bring Sto:lo stories to share at an event marking the summer solistice and National Aboriginal Day

There is no need to feel torn this weekend.

Chilliwack residents don’t have to choose between National Aboriginal Day and International Day of Yoga on June 21.

They can celebrate both.

Watershed Watch Salmon Society is joining WaterWealth Project and Cheam First Nation to host a special event at Bridal Falls on Sunday.

Described as ‘My Watershed Moment,’ the event will see a yoga session together with some traditional indigenous knowledge shared beside a waterfall.

Cheam members Carrielynn Victor and Ernie Victor will be kicking off the day with traditional Sto:lo teachings about summer solstice and a cleansing ceremony.

Lina Azeez of Watershed Watch Salmon Society will discuss nature therapy, the interconnections between healthy watersheds and healthy humans. Lara von Waldenburg and Jenn Werner from Inner Vision Yoga in Chilliwack will lead the 60-minute hatha yoga class building on the principles of nature therapy to inspire positive action.

The event will be at Bridal Veil Creek, in Bridal Veil Provincial Park, on Sunday, June 21, from  9 a.m. to noon.
