3. Intro to AcroYoga
For the active mom: AcroYoga is the lighthearted practice of balancing, 'flying' and playing with yoga postures -- an exercise in communication, understanding and compassion.

Click here for more information and to register.
4. Sustainable Giftware
For a more classic approach, take a perusal through FortWhyte Alive's Nature Shop. Grab something nice for mom -- like a classic bird feeder or something from our friends at Coal and Canary -- and feel good knowing that your purchase supports FWA's mission and mandate. Another reason to shop at FWA: from May 1-10th, receive a free gift when you make a purchase of $30 or more.
5. FortWhyte Alive Membership
For the mom who has everything: Treat mom to a year of lakeside relaxation and forested path exploration with a FortWhyte Alive Membership. Taking out a FWA Membership is another key way to support environmental education at FortWhyte Alive. Click here for more information and to take out a FWA Gift Membership online.
