  • 9 a.m.

Yoga is all about releasing your anxieties, knotted muscles, and—in some cases—buckets of sweat. Now Paintlounge wants to help turn this workout into an artistic venture. Join instructor Hayley Lowe for A Creative Journey Workshop, a combination of yoga and painting. Focus on breathing, relaxation, and posture in a Hatha Yoga session to connect to your creativity, and then channel it into your own piece of original art.

Hipster or not, you probably feel pretty smug when you experience something before it becomes popular. The Ryerson University Film Festival (RUFF) is the perfect opportunity to add to your “I saw it back when…” catalogue. The pieces that graduating School of Image Arts film students have been pouring their hearts and souls into all year will screen over the course of two days. Considering Ryerson’s track record of fostering creative minds, you might just see the next TIFF buzz film before anyone else does!
