Have Fun With Our Virtual Care Package

May 28, 2020

Our world is going through difficult times and our daily routines and lives have changed significantly. We at Dauphin are aware that most of the population is working from home and believe that in times like this, we have to really stick together, support and believe in each other even when we have to be apart. For this reason, our team wants you to know how much we care for you and your loved ones. We put together a Virtual Care Package featuring great ways to get away, travel, relax, and play–all from the comfort and safety of your home.

NightExplore the Visual Arts 

Inspire your inner creativity and delve deeper into the visual arts with art classes from the Museum of Modern Art. Classes are free but if you would like a certificate upon completion there is a fee.

 

 

Theatre

Give your regards to Broadway and the Met

Nothing can replace the real thing, but until then, for a small fee (a fraction of  a ticket price) watch classic performances of  broadway theater or the Metropolitan Opera from the comfort and safety of your home.

 

SunsetFind Your Inner Peace 

Oprah and Deepak are offering a free 21-Day mediation experience “Hope in Uncertain Times”. Inspired by the notion that it takes 21 days to create a habit. Enjoy the life-changing benefits of mediation in an easy and inspiring way, register here.

 

Fitness

 

Sheltering in place, doesn’t mean you have to be a couch potato (all these great virtual activities aside). Stay in shape with free classes from many different gyms and other sources, Nike Training Club and Planet Fitness are just two of the options.
