Upcoming workshops for managing stress in challenging times include:
Part 1: Led by AHS Certified professionals, this interactive workshop includes a basic discussion of stress plus looks at different ways to manage stress, including 2 HeartMath® breathing techniques. Participants will come away with an understanding of the impact of emotions on the body plus an action plan to address their own stress.
Part 2: Led by AHS Certified professionals, this interactive workshop will discuss perception, decision making and communication using the HeartMath® tools taught in Part 1. (Note that this is a continuation from concepts learned in Part 1, so completion of Part 1 is essential prior to taking Part 2.)

COVID-19 has changed the way that we interact with our community. As activity slowly returns to normal in Alberta, the Ellerslie Community League is planning our next steps for community activities. At this time we are supporting our community online through activities and information on our Facebook page.
We want to ensure our community’s safety is our #1 priority. We will be continually reassessing whether we can begin reinstating small community activities like Movie Nights as the summer progresses. As it stands right now, we do not have a time frame for these activities to resume.
Watch our website or our Facebook page for updates on when activities will begin!
