Mothers in motion

Workshops For Mothers

A workshop to encourage mothers and their families to be more physically active

As part of its funding received from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, CAAWS will be hosting 10 workshops across Ontario over the next three months (April – June 2012) for mothers who are interested in doing more to get themselves, their families, their peers and their communities more physically active.

The purpose of this free 2 hour workshop is to share physical activity and sport challenges and opportunities specific to mothers and their families with mothers, providing an opportunity for them to explore ways they can become advocates for themselves and their peers, to network and to discuss collaboration and local action to make a difference in the lives of mothers and families in their community.

Between diaper changes, feedings, and everyday chores I can't imagine where to find time for me.

Let your baby take one nap a day in the stroller and use this time to go for a walk - physical activity is great "me" time for the body and the mind. If your child is a little older look for a swimming or yoga class that you can enjoy together.
