After we have indulged in our feast to start our day, we will make our way over to the Modern Wellness studio in lovely downtown Canmore. Walk over if you’d like or share a ride. Either way, enjoy the mountain scenery along the way!

Around 12:30 we will reconnect at the Modern Wellness studio to discover new ways to get in touch with hearts, minds and bodies. Modern Wellness is a new concept in helping individuals guide their own physical life journey for as long as possible in an able body.  Gilles and Quy, the owners, are friends of Sharon Bowes and soon to be friends of the EBC/EBI group. They have come up with a new way for people to get in touch with the whole body.  

Location: Modern Wellness
Address: 215 826 Main St (upstairs, Canmore, AB T1W 2B7, Canada
Date: Sun, July 7, 2019
Time: 12:30 pm MT

Note: Robes are provided at the studio and you may want to bring a bathing suit and/or work out clothing with you to use all of the equipment in the studio.

Each individual will travel through the circuit of special rooms and experience the unique wellness tools available in the studio.  Starting with a 3D full body scan, you will learn about your posture and set a baseline for your physical journey, you will then move to experience the Infrared room where light energy courses through your body energizing and helping to heal your cells.  Next move on to your choice of sauna – a traditional sauna where you can join others or sit and sweat it out on your own, or a sauna where you can practice your yoga or other exercise routines in a wide open, warm space. Finally, journey to the recovery lounge and immerse yourself in a set of “boots” with an optional blindfold and headset that allow you to meditate or disconnect from the busyness of life around you as you experience a thorough compression massage of your legs from the tips of your toes to the tops of your thighs.  A truly delightful experience.

And in between we are adding two additional experiences to the studio space:  

  1. A collaboration corner where we can get together in conversation as we all like to do, sharing what we are up to in the world and what others in the group are working on or living within the scope of leading a wellness life.
  2. A Sound Wellness corner with Sharon Carne and her incredible sound journeys that she and Ed have created.

For those in the crowd who are interested in a more extreme physical performance experience, there is a fitness room as well with some interesting altitude training technology available.  We have the studio all to ourselves for the entire afternoon.

At the end of the day, in experience with each other, the journey promises magical connections.  


  • Breakfast is at your own expense as per normal
  • The time at the Modern Wellness Studio is a cost of $50 each
  • Mountain air and scenery is free to enjoy and experience throughout the day!  And connecting with each other is priceless!
