September for many symbolizes the start of something new. When we get into the habit of starting school in September for so long (or still are in that habit), it is hard to ignore the obvious change in energy that this month brings. We however are excited for this new energy! And we encourage you to embrace it. Why not channel new energy into trying something new?! We’ve got loads of fun events we’ll be at this month that we know you’ll enjoy too. Check us out!

September 8th- East Fest

Get to know us in our own ‘hood! East Fest is an annual community street fair held on Beechwood Ave. between St. Charles and Marier. There will be food, great music, activities, and great people (including us!). Swing by to play a few games and learn even more about the services we provide. Or just come by to say hi and see a familiar face!

September 9th- MEC Trail Race: Calabogie Crush

We’ll be leading the warm up and cool down so you can run your race with losey-gosey muscles that feel fresh and ready to go! MEC is hosting a 5km or 13km race through the trails at the beautiful Calabogie Peaks Resort and afterwards the Resort will be hosting an Apres BBQ!

September 10th- Happiness on the Hill

Our very own Jewelia Orlick will be leading this session of Happiness on the Hill! This is a movement to bring greater happiness and a sense of community to our city (you know how much we love that!) through meditation and mindfulness. These meditation classes are every Monday from 12-1pm on Parliament Hill. Come by to share in those good vibes!

September 15th- Movement Masterclass

This class is run by Tyler Touchette, one of the country’s leaders in the movement field and his training methods (which you’ll explore in this class) are based on leading science and research. Learn to master movements you didn’t think possible, develop new physical and mental skills, and have fun taking part in this #movementculture.

September 29th- 6 Years EPIC

Our new HQ is ready for you!! It’s taken a year of preparation, hard work, and dedication to fully complete our vision but now that we have, we can’t wait to share it with you! This also coincides with our 6-year anniversary :) Come by to share some amazing food, mingle, have a walk-through, and learn what EPIC is like behind the scenes (spoiler alert: pretty great :P). We can’t wait to share #theEPIClife with new and old friends!
