June 2019 newsletter

Our format this month is not its usual slickness as Ed my newsletter editor is moving house, so it’s a bit rough and ready but the content is fabulous as always!

International Yoga Day logoFriday June 21st is International Yoga day and we would like to share this special day with you by inviting you to a free evening of yoga classes – see more below

If any of you are going to the Dorset Fest this year, we look forward to seeing you there. Dorchester Yoga and Therapy Centre will be running the Holistic Zone, offering Yoga, meditation, relaxation, aromatherapy hand massage, reflexology, thai yoga massage, kinesiology and meridian balancing!  Come and find us!

Enjoy the weather and the great outdoors,  and of course your yoga, and be thankful for living in such a wonderful part of the country, indeed the world!

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

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

New Classes

We started various new classes in May:

Yoga For Parkinsons is a new weekly class on Thursdays 9.15-10.15am taught by Sharon Cox-Button, if you are interested or would like more information please contact  07742821937 or scoxbutton@gmail.com

We also hosted an Introduction to Baby signing class run by Little Signers for our Mums, Dads and Babies and that was a huge success and enjoyed buy all so we hope to be able to offer a regular course soon.

Our monthly Reiki Share is back and Annabel Fox, our Massage and Reiki therapist took the first session. There have been no reiki shares for a while now as Karen Giles who used to take them has retired, but we hope she might come back and take a few odd ones! It has been missed by many and so is great to have it back on the timetable! These sessions will be monthly, but not fixed to a certain day. So if you would like to be informed as to when they are, and who is teaching them please contact us to be added to the email list. If you would like to know more about reiki share  please contact us. It could be a great introduction to the reiki world!
