Fitness & Yoga Posters

This is a good time to have resources at home and work to be physically active!

Four posters were created by the Indigenous Physical Activity & Cultural Circle (IPACC) in
collaboration with the Indigenous Studies in Kinesiology (ISK) program at the University of British Columbia to promote physical activity and wholistic health and wellness of Indigenous peoples.

Two posters were created focusing on introducing yoga practices from either a seated or standing
position. In addition, two full body resistance workout posters were created to promote physical
activity and incorporate Indigenous ways of knowing, being, and doing. All of these exercises can be
done anywhere, including in your home or outdoors in nature.
