New Year, New YOU! We here at Gather want to welcome you back from the holidays and wish you all a Happy New Year!
For those of you joining us for the first time, we're a group organizing events aimed at bringing together awesome women (like you!) who work in tech while donating to a local cause. Proceeds from our ticket sales go directly to a nonprofit organization in Vancouver, with an option to contribute a little bit more to help us put on future events.
We're super excited about this event as it's a first for us! Please join us for a night of yoga, socializing, and charity.
We're pleased to welcome the amazing Cecily Elmas who will be giving us all an hour-long beginner's yoga session to help us reset for the new year, followed by refreshments. Cecily is a certified yoga instructor through lululemon's Mindfulon Yoga/Leadership Teacher Training as well as a co-owner of Be Guided.
Proceeds from this event will be going to the Alzheimer Society of BC in honour of Alzheimer's Awareness Month!
There will be self-serve refreshments for everyone provided by our lovely host, Moz. Please note that Moz’s space is on the third floor and thus is not wheelchair accessible. We apologize for any guests who may not be able to attend because of this, and we're striving to ensure future events are accessible to all. If you know of any accessible, free, event spaces for us to look at, we'd greatly appreciate it.
**Please bring your own yoga mat!

Cecily Elmas currently leads personal development work through lululemon and co-owns Be Guided with her husband, Peter.

January is Alzheimer's Awareness Month which is why we decided to donate the proceeds to the Alzheimer Society of BC. To learn more about the work they are doing to help those affected and how you can get involved, check out their website: https://alzheimer.ca/en/bc
The goal of Gather is to build community, to support each other, make meaningful connections, and give back to the larger community - all while having a fun time in a low pressure environment (no thanks to stuffy networking events). All proceeds from our events go to various nonprofit organizations in Vancouver.
