New Year, New You? 6 Oshawa groups to try in 2016

IMG_5555From roller derby to yoga (and a whole lot in between), make 2016 the year you try something new!  Check out these Oshawa groups for inspiration:

Yoga in the Gallery:  Expand your mind, body and creativity with weekly yoga practice in the stunning galleries of the Robert McLaughlin Gallery.  Suitable for all levels with a focus on mindfulness, the class is led by Meg Cox, who trained through the AyurYoga EcoAshram in Mysore, India.  Session 1 starts on January 21, 2016.  For more information and pricing, click here.

Durham Region Triathlon Club:  Is a triathlon on your 2016 “to do” list?  Durham Region Triathlon Club members take part in weekly open water swims, group bike rides, and track workouts.  Get expert training, meet workout partners, mentors to help learn the ropes, and enjoy social events to celebrate achievements.  Check the website for membership fees, calendar, and how to enrol.

Durham Dodgeball: Like your grade five gym class, but for adults!  Dodge, duck, dip and dive on Wednesday nights at Village Union Public School.  The Winter 2016 session has already started, but there may still be room for individual players.  Click for membership fees and forms.

Oshawa Camera Club: Photography buffs from novice to master meet twice monthly, take part in educational programs, and participate in in-club competitions.  One of the oldest camera clubs in Canada, the Oshawa Camera Club has lifted their membership cap and is taking registrations from the wait list.  Contact the club directly for membership details.

Durham Outdoors Club:  Hike, skate, canoe, cross country ski, and enjoy social events with other outdoor enthusiasts! Check out how to become a member, or the calendar to see what the club gets up to.

Durham Region Roller Derby:  This one’s just for ladies who are looking for a fast-paced, full-contact sport that draws big crowds.  If you’re interested in joining DRRD as a skater, send an email to, and check out the requirements online.

Durham Shoestring Performers:  Since 1974, the Durham Shoestring Performers have presented challenging and entertaining plays, and have produced these plays at low cost so that live theatre can be accessible to all members of the community. No experience is required, all auditions are public, and there are no fees to participate in the company. Adults and teenagers wanting to perform or to work backstage are always welcome – all you need is a desire to create a few theatrical waves and the time to make it happen.  Email for information about how to audition for upcoming productions.
