Conference Details

CALA Aqua Vitality Workshop with Dylan Harries October 15th, Canmore AB.

Dylan, I have to say that your Aqua Vitality session in the pool day 2 was my favourite. My body loved it. There were only a few things I needed to modify with my knee but that is to be expected. I have only gotten to see you teach the CALA Liquid Barre Clinic on line. You should be teaching the CALA Group Aquafitness Specialty program as well. You have a spark when you teach on the deck that is contagious.

CALA Certified Instructor, Cochrane, AB
CALA thank you
"Thank you for a Fabulous CALA Conference experience in Canmore, AB October 14th & 15th!
I didn't realize until I was at the 30th CALA celebration that I actually was in the initial CALA classes taught in North Vancouver. My instructor was very conscientious and taught us according to form. All learned from the book, Foundations of Vertical Water Training, I eventually got to study first hand and now know why she was able to teach the way she did. I am so glad to have CALA in my life! I wish I could remember my instructor's name. I sure can remember her character and positive influence in my life. I bet you'd know her. Sunny complexion. Tawny hair. She often wore a baseball cap teaching 30 years ago.
Thanks for the weekend and all the rest that added up to it!"

CALA Inner Choreographer Workshop with Leah Widynowski, October 15th, Canmore AB.

“ I appreciated the permission to "jazz" everything up, but taught in the understanding it should be grounded from the basic CALA movement bank. I loved learning of "the backwards working out plan" from complex to foundational moves and then that the learning was executed from start to final product. Well done. You have such a wonderful ability to play. The world needs people like you to remind them to move and express happiness. It has a ripple effect and benefits so many others when you teach the way you do. Thank you!

Please pass along to Charlene - her water running session at the CALA Conference in Canmore, on October 14th was not what I imagined water running even could be - it was amazing, motivating, wonderful! CALA Member, Parksville, BC.
