October 2018 newsletter

Welcome to our October newsletter. It is certainly feeling Autumnal and the colours of the Horse Chestnut trees outside our studios are looking gorgeous!

We have had a very busy September with everyone seemingly enthusiastic to be back to their classes and a wonderful variety of workshops that have been very well attended. October continues to be busy with still more teachers and therapists joining us and new classes on the timetable.

Calling all children!  We have space in our childrens’ classes, Mondays 4:30 – 5:15pm (ages 5 – 9), Thursdays 5:00 – 5:45pm (9 – 12 years).  Please call Kim Jones on 07990 501 207 if you would like a taster.

As ever, the details are below and in the calendar – please check it!

We will be taking the website down for maintenance at some in point mid-October – so if you can’t see it for a few days – don’t panic! It’s at the Big Yoga Website Garage In The Cloud for some tinkering.

With best wishes from Sharon and all the teachers and therapists at Dorchester Yoga and Therapy Centre

“The Symptoms of (this) mental agitation are suffering, negative thinking, restlessness and erratic breathing” wrote Patanjali, a few centuries ago.

Come and discuss this in our philosophy class “Yoga Sutras of Patanjali with Sarah Ryan on Saturday 13th at 10:45 – 12:15pm. This Sutra can help us to recognise quickly when things are going wrong in our life, so we can right them before they get worse. There are wonderful suggestions of how we can do that. Do come and join us – these sessions are suitable for anyone interested in yoga and how it can help our life.
