“Come on, jump in!” says the water ...
Monday, July 21st to Sunday, July 27th: Cathy’s classes are canceled during our Hart Lazer Yoga and Meditation Retreat…but you can participate! Daily: “Deepening your asana practice” 8-11 a.m. and “Meditation: Relaxing the mind and heart” 4-7 p.m. See the website for more details. http://www.freewheeling.ca/HartLazerYogaRetreat.html
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.]
Yoga for Everyone at the Fox Point Community Centre, Tuesdays, 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. $2 per session. Sessions continue until early August (class is canceled July 22nd). 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, July 18th, we will meet at the Sawpit Wharf at 10 a.m. (this is the road behind Lunenburg that follows the back harbour en route to Blue Rocks): there is a toilet there and some parking. We will ride to Stonehurst, have a swim (maybe) and eat our snack at Cindy's boathouse, then ride back. This route is relatively short with a few hills, very picturesque, with lots of twists and turns around Blue Rocks. Bring your bathing suit, snack and camera! After our ride, we can go for a late-ish lunch in Lunenburg (around 1-1:30 p.m.)
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.
Bike and Yoga Getaway: Five days cycling along the South Shore (Friday, August 29th – Tuesday, Sept. 2nd).
