Summer News from the Sail Loft Studio
#2118 Rte 329, The Lodge, 858-3330 August/September 2015
During late August and September there will be a few schedule changes and cancellations, then classes will resume as usual. Please take note: there will be no Tuesday classes on August 25th, Sept. 15th, or Sept. 22nd; and on Sept. 3rd , please join Yogiji and me! Otherwise, Thursday classes will continue as “normal” (though you may find a “sub” on one of those days until the end of the sailing season).
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.]
Monday yoga classes, 6:15-7:30 p.m. will continue until August 31st. After a three week break, Monday classes will resume on September 28th.
Yoga for Everyone at the Fox Point Community Centre, Tuesdays, 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Next 8 week session begins on September 29th. Pay what you can ($2-$5). 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.
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.
Yogiji is returning to the Sail Loft Studio! We are so very delighted that he is coming back to The Lodge! On Wednesday, September 2nd, at 6 p.m. we will gather at the Sail Loft for an hour of meditation and chanting, followed by a potluck supper at our home across the street. On Thursday, September 3rd, Yogiji will be teaching from 10:30 a.m. to noon. We will begin with some gentle asana, and finish with Yoga Nidra. A brief question and answer period will follow, and perhaps a swim! For those of you who have not met Yogiji, you are in for a treat. Of course, those of us who have studied with Yogiji over the past seven years that he has visited Nova Scotia will be eager to reconnect. Cost is by donation ($10 for the Wednesday session and $20 for Thursday are suggested). During his visit to Nova Scotia, Yogiji will be in various locations around Halifax and Fall River.
