And more summer solstice fun on Thursday June 20th at 7 p.m. as we celebrate summer with 108 sun salutations! Join us at #4115 highway 3 at the Art of Healing Wellness Centre studio in the Chester Shore Mall. Amy Grapel, who is hosting the event, promises that there will be a gloriously long savasana after the 108 salutations are complete, with yummy treats and drinks after the class! A cash donation is appreciated, with money to be donated to the Yoga Body Image Coalition. Please RSVP by contacting Cathy at the email address below.

Private Sessions & personal training: Private sessions can be helpful if you have a health issue that you would like to address in a more personal setting; a special yoga interest, like chanting, meditation, or philosophy, to name a few; or want some help to develop an at-home program and just check in with the teacher from time to time. One-on-one or group sessions are available, and families are welcome! Check with me to discuss an appropriate cost.

I am also working collaboratively with Kim Hodgson on a 15-week program: A Good Place to Start. The program focuses on improving posture and re-programming harmful movement patterns. We take ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures, and the results have been impressive. Details are on the Sail Loft website.

Bike Skills and Yoga: Time to get the bike out of the garage, dust it off, and get cycling! Cathy offers a program that helps you to learn a bit more about your bike. Here are a few things we have a look at: how to do a safety check before riding; what you need to assemble a repair kit to take with you when you head out; and good cycling practices, posture, and some hints for more efficient riding. And, of course, we do some yoga poses to help us limber up before our ride! Call or write Cathy if you are interested!
