Exercise undersea through June

The Spring series of the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre’s Yoga Under the Salish Sea will continue through June

The Spring series of the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre’s Yoga Under the Salish Sea will continue through June.

The Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre (SODC) and Panorama Recreation Centre teamed up to offer yoga classes in the aquarium last fall.

“The aquarium is a great place to take yoga because it’s a totally unique experience,” Christina Smethurst, innovations advancement specialist at the SODC, said.

“Where else on the Peninsula can you do a goddess pose within two feet of a Giant Pacific Octopus without getting wet?” she added.

Originally, the last sessions were scheduled for earlier this spring, but interest in the program was such that the SODC decided to keep the sessions running through June.

Additional class dates for the month of June will be Wednesday the 5, 12, 19 and 26 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the aquarium.
