Spring News from the Sail Loft Studio
#2118 Rte 329, The Lodge, 858-3330;

Happy Spring, and welcome to the Sail Loft Newsletter!

Saturday Open Studio continues until Mother’s Day weekend, when the Hubbards Market resumes. Until then, join us for meditation: 10-10:30 a.m., and personal practice: 10:30 a.m.-noon. Bring wood for the fire, or leave a donation towards the heat. There is no teaching, per se, but Cathy is there to help with poses, and for questions.

Note: no open studio on Easter Weekend.

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.

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. No classes on holiday Mondays.

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.

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!

Hart Lazer Yoga and Meditation Retreat, Wednesday, July 24th to Sunday, July 28th, 2019: Details are posted on-line! This is a wonderful retreat: check it out! A limited number of drop-in classes are available also.
