The Town of Portugal Cove – St. Philip’s is looking forward to seeing participants in the coming weeks. We have missed our fitness and program family! It has been a long, challenging few months for everyone due to the ongoing pandemic, and we hope the return of these programs bring some joyful activity to your lives.
It is important for all participants to recognize that programs will look much different than when things ended in the winter session, prior to the pandemic. There are new procedures and protocols in place to lower the risk of COVID-19 transmission. These include changes to the room layout, schedule, numbers of participants, and more.
Please ensure to read the Fall Programming 2020 Overview document in full and contact our recreation staff if you have any questions.

Gentle Flow Yoga will be instructed in Fall 2019 by Pauline Pineau.
“I am a certified yoga instructor with over 30 years of practice. My yoga class will explore the foundations of yoga, standing and sitting postures, proper breathing techniques, and relaxation and balance. During this practice, participants will move in and out of postures slowly, with strong focus on safe alignment. Each week we will explore a new dimension of yoga including synchronizing breath to movement, alignment details, and the physical benefits of yoga. During this practice you can expect to improve your overall fitness level by gaining strength, flexibility, and balance. This 60 minute class promotes a heightened sense of awareness and well being in a slower paced, non-competitive and supportive environment. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing. If you would like further information call Pauline at 895-1285.”
