Regularly scheduled classes, taught by Cathy Guest, are held weekly on Mondays, 6:15-7:30 p.m.; Tuesdays, 7-8:30 p.m.; and Thursdays, 10:30 a.m.-noon. All are welcome. All three classes are suitable for any age and ability. Small classes give us a chance to look at individual needs in our practice. Cost is $10, or $75 for eight classes.

Open Studio Saturdays Join us 10-10:30 a.m. for meditation, 10:30 a.m.-noon for practice. There is no charge, but donations towards the heat are welcome.

Yoga for Everyone at the Lion’s Club in Fox Point continues on Tuesdays 11:45 a.m.-12:45 p.m. The fee is $2-$5 (pay what you can afford by donation). We do not have spare mats, so plan to bring your own. We use chairs for assistance, so everyone can participate.

Yoga for Seniors at the Blandford Community Centre, Fridays, 10-11 a.m. is popular and fun! We use chairs for assistance, so everyone can participate Cost is $7 drop in. Bring a mat if you have one.

Philosophical chats by the fire in our cozy boathouse apartment are planned monthly. Our next chat is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 22nd 1:30-3:30 p.m. We will be discussing how we might like to orchestrate our own funerals and cremations and/or burials to make it easier on those left behind. How easy is it to be ready (sort of…)? Bring along a donation towards the heat, and join our discussion! Our March chat topic is still open: any ideas?

Yoga teacher training at Inner Sun Yoga: Consider joining our comprehensive yoga teacher training, beginning in April, 2020, and finishing in late summer. This year, the program will take place mostly in the Blockhouse Inner Sun location (there is also a studio in Wolfville), giving South Shore yogis easier access to the teachings offered by David Thomas, Carol-Joy Kaill, and Catherine Guest. The YTT prepares graduates to work with students with compassion and knowledge, though many enjoy the program for enhancement of their own personal practice. Over the years, many graduates have repeated the program numerous times because it is so helpful, enjoyable, informative, and current.

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.

Cathy goes skiing, and occasionally cancels classes at the last minute. If you attend classes regularly, you will be notified by email. If you drop in occasionally, check the Sail Loft Yoga Facebook page to make sure the class is still on!
