Snowy Winter News
from the Sail Loft Yoga Studio
#2118 Rte 329, The Lodge, 858-3330 February/March 2015
Special winter note: Regular Monday classes are cancelled until spring!
Cathy’s regular Tuesday 7-8:30 p.m. and Thursday 10:30 a.m.-noon. classes are ongoing: Join us in our yoga practice at the welcoming Sail Loft Studio, surrounded by spectacular views of the ocean and sky. All levels and abilities are welcome to participate in the classes. If you are new to yoga, have issues that restrict your movements, or injuries that you are dealing with, feel free to call or write Cathy to talk about whether you would feel comfortable joining a class. Drop–ins are welcome ($10) or purchase eight sessions for $75. You may also pay by donation, if payment is an obstacle to attendance. [“Ashtanga” means “eight limbs”: all Cathy’s classes explore yoga practice using this “eight-limbed” approach. Using focus and intention, we learn how to be skillful and at ease in the poses, and more mindful in our movements, grounding, and breathing.]
Saturdays: Even if you believe you cannot remember yoga poses without being told what to do, you will be amazed by how much you will enjoy giving yourself an opportunity to arrive on your mat in our warm beautiful space. You will love the energy of practicing with others in this quiet, beautiful setting. Please join us 10:30 a.m. to noon for open studio practice. There is no instruction, but a senior teacher is present in the studio to assist if necessary. Cost is by donation, or bring wood for the stove. (PS Even better: come early – 10 a.m. - for a half hour meditation practice.) Please let me know if you plan to attend.
Yoga for Everyone at the Fox Point Community Centre, Tuesdays, 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Our eight week session will continue throughout March: $2 per session. Drop ins are welcome. Cathy teaches yoga poses with chair support, so everyone can participate. No experience is necessary. Bring a mat if you have one. Call or write Amy or Christina at the Fox Point Community Centre (Christina@hhellps.com) or Cathy if you have questions.
Special Nia event: Sunday, February 22, 2:00-3:30 pm at the Sail Loft. This will be a playshop with 3 Nia instructors, sharing the music, movement and magic of Nia in a gorgeous setting! Stay for a cup of tea and chat afterward. $15. Please RSVP so that we may contact you in the event of any weather-related changes! I can help connect anybody who might like to carpool - just let me know. Write: email@example.com.
Yoga for individuals and groups, with Cathy Guest: Please contact me to discuss ways to incorporate yoga and meditation practices in your daily life. I have experience and training in working with youth, families, individuals with a variety of health issues, yoga teacher training, general strength-building, and developing better fitness strategies.
A note about parking and bad weather cancellation: Our parking area is slightly bigger now with some recent construction around the property. If you have any concerns about driving down to the studio parking area, and/or potentially backing up (this happens rarely), feel free to park along the road. There are two parking spaces nearby along Rte 329, one just beyond the studio, across the street from our mailbox @ #2118, and a little pull-in at the bottom of our driveway. If driving conditions are considered dangerous, I will cancel the class by email. You can call anytime if you have questions or concerns:
