We're offering the 2nd round of our anxiety relief yoga and meditation workshop - just in time for Christmas! Shake off that holiday stress and take a little time for you.
Does your mind keep getting stuck in negative thought patterns? Are you constantly overthinking and overanalyzing every little thing? Anxiety is rough. Are you ready to fight back?
Join us for this hour long workshop where you'll learn tips and tricks to reformat and reshape the way you think. We'll address ways to prevent anxiety attacks and find relief in high-stress situations.
Words from the instructor, Madison Elyse:
"Living with anxiety doesn't make you crazy or weird - it makes you strong.
From a relatively young age I was prescribed anti-anxiety meds and antidepressants to manage my mood. The pills made me feel dull and heavy, and I was MISERABLE. Finally, I had a therapist that turned to exercise and breathwork instead of a pill bottle. She sent me to yoga and taught me breathing techniques to calm my nerves. It was incredible!
Now, I've been medication-free for over 5 years. It doesn't mean that my anxiety is gone, it just means that I can recognize it and make sure it doesn't run my life. As cliche as it may sound, yoga provided me with the tools to feel lighter and happier. It gave me the courage to live my life the way I want to live it - and I can't wait to share what I've learned with you!"

The Nationwide Stride Against Cancer, a fundraising event to benefit the Cayman Islands Cancer Society takes place on the last Sunday each January. For 2019, the big day is Sunday January 27th.
2018 information below... to be confirmed for the 2019 event:
Register at www.caymanactive.com/registrations
CI$25 Early-Bird Before January 13th. CI$30 Standard Rate from January 13th.
After registering online, striders can pick up their race packets (t-shirts) and pay any day from Tuesday January 23rd to Saturday January 27th at the CICS Office (114 Maple Road, George Town - Opposite the George Town Hospital).
Stride Against Cancer is organized by the Cayman Islands Cancer Society and is the organization’s largest fundraising event. The funds raised will help finance the Society’s many programs and activities.
Cancer touches everyone. What makes Stride Against Cancer different from other charity walk/run events is the connection that participants and volunteers feel with each other and with the cause.
There are over 1300 participants and more than 100 volunteers between the walk/run in George Town and the one in North Side. Both events are non-competitive.
Additionally, school children all around the island Stride Against Cancer within their schools on the Friday before the main Stride events.
The event attracts people of all ages and from all walks of life and truly reflects the diversity of the Caymanian community. It is a family event with people coming together united in the common goal of striding against cancer.
We hope you and your organization will join us and be a part of the largest walk/run in the Cayman Islands.

February is Heart Month and Friday February 1st 2019 is Cayman's Wear Red Day: an initiative to help raise awareness about cardiovascular disease and its effects.
Wear Red in your school, workplace and neighborhood and please raise funds for the Cayman Heart Fund.
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the number one killer worldwide. More people die annually from CVD than from any other cause.
Heart Month is a fantastic way to remind everyone to focus on their hearts and encourage them to get their families, friends and communities involved. The most important thing you can do is to speak to your physician about your risks and know your numbers by checking for blood pressure, cholesterol, sugar levels, weight, and BMI.
For the past 12 years the Cayman Heart Fund has worked diligently in the community raising funds to increase awareness about the risks for heart disease and stroke.
Funds raised support fitness programs, educational sessions and health screening events.
To benefit Heart Month, all proceeds from Pilates classes at Balance Cayman on Saturday, February 23rd, will be donated to Cayman Heart Fund. Sue Merren, owner of Balance Cayman, promotes the importance of heart health and awareness around the prevention of heart disease.
Another proud supporter of Cayman Heart Fund is Sportisa. They enjoy partnering with like-minded organizations and individuals who share their goal of promoting the importance of staying healthy and keeping fit. Coordinator for the Cayman Heart Fund, Colleen Mellott said, the aim of our collaboration with Sportista is to engage with and inspire residents to take their heart health seriously.
Sportista has name brand sports footwear, apparel, and accessories - the gear to motivate runners, walkers, gym goers and anyone who wants to start and stay active. They take fun and social responsibility seriously and will work to build an on-going partnership with CHF which can deliver benefits to all persons living in the Cayman Islands.
Together there is still so much more we can do to save lives in the Cayman Islands.
