Volunteer of the Month Kelowna Family Y

Ali Mayo

Ali is a pleasant, knowledgeable yoga instructor who takes the time needed to ensure community members are getting what they need from her teachings. Ali describes her volunteer experience as a love and appreciation for being given the opportunity to share her expertise and to help people connect with themselves through movement and breathing.

The dive pool is currently down at the Kelowna Family YMCA. Thank you for your patience while it is under repair.
