‘Dog Days of Summer’ News
from the Sail Loft Yoga Studio
#2118 Rte 329, The Lodge, 858-3330 August/September 2014
Horseview, Sail Loft Studio, July 2014
September 22nd equinox drumming, 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. This is a Monday… the equinox is approximately 11:30 a.m. this year.
Cathy’s regular classes are ongoing: evenings: Monday and Tuesday, 7-8:30 p.m.; mornings: Thursday, 10:30 a.m.-noon. 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.]
Note: there are no classes on Holiday Mondays. No Thursday class on Sept. 18th (doing Nia instead…see below).
Yoga for Everyone at the Fox Point Community Centre, Tuesdays, 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. $2 per session. Sessions continue until August 19th and will resume on September 23rd. Drop ins are welcome. Please spread the word! 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.
Bicycle events coming up:
Girls Rides: A group of friends decided that to get more women cycling, we would organize fun, easy rides that everyone could participate in. We usually ride on Fridays (but sometimes Wednesdays), and have lunch “on the road”, usually at a yummy café along our route. There is no charge for the ride, except a gas contribution (we carpool). Cathy is your fearless leader, traveling with a repair and first aid kit, and years of cycling experience. It is your responsibility to arrive with a bike in good working order, at least one spare tube that fits your wheel, and a good sense of humour. Please call if you are interested in joining us, and pass along the invitation!
On Friday, August 23rd, we will meet at 10:30 a.m. at Summerville Beach parking area (just past the Quarterdeck Cottages). We will ride to Port Mouton, and have a picnic lunch at Carter’s Beach. There are no restaurant or canteen services, so bring what you need, especially a bathing suit! For those who wish to carpool from Hubbards or Chester, write Cathy@freewheeling.ca.
Bike and Yoga Getaway: Five days cycling along the South Shore (Friday, August 29th – Tuesday, Sept. 2nd).
If you are local, and would like to join us for some day trips, contact Cathy for prices and rendezvous points. We will spend an overnight at the Quarterdeck Cottages on Monday, September 1st: we will need to know by August 17th (Sunday) if you would like to stay there with us.
Bike Skills and Yoga: This five hour workshop can be scheduled for individuals or groups at any time. Deepen your bike skills, learn how to incorporate yoga for limbering up and recovery, and enjoy a delicious lunch: $50.
Nia coming up!!!!!
Join a one hour Nia class at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 16th through to Saturday, Sept. 20th,
