PA Days like today are good reminders of all the wee crushers we have the privilege of hosting. From the home school daily faithful of @chankidsclimbing to some new visitors today, we're so grateful to introduce climbing to strong little fingers! We'll take this also as an opportunity to show you our true learner's curve getting back to its roots. We've backed up the tops to remain compliant for field trips, and approachable for warmups and easier teaching climbs. Make your moves intentional and fluid--forget about the height. Ultimately we can keep the little ones working the problems here a little more and away from the tougher stuff so adults have some room to open up!

Do Yoga!! ” Meet the coolest best friends Kaveh @kiahashe and Kia @kashanik --They came to Canada from Iran and they’ve been friends for 20 years! Kia, the self-proclaimed mountain goat, started bouldering after seeing the sport on TV and wanted to try it out. He introduced the sport to Kaveh and it has helped bond their relationship even more. They love Hub because of the tight-knit community. When not climbing, the friends have cook-offs and plan to establish their own food truck business.

🚨 new Tuesday 8pm yoga classes! 🚨 Moving Meditation with Connie Kwok--These classes will take the participant into postures that assists in understanding how our mind and our body work and interact. Both #Yoga and #climbing teaches us how to take more responsibility and thinking for ourselves. It requires conscious effort to establish autonomy in consciousness. For example: precise footwork is one of the most important techniques to master in climbing. Strong, supple feet and mobile ankles are important for climbers. Yoga can teach us to become more aware of our feet as the placement of the feet are fundamental to maintaining lightness, stability and dynamism in most asanas. For the next four weeks come explore the possibilities in moving meditation. We will be gaining more insights into the interaction of the mind and body through thoughts, habits, breathing, movement and balance. You will be able to carry more awareness to the obstacles you face on your mat, to your climbing situations and in life. #markham #markhamyoga #yorkregion ... See MoreSee Less
