December 2019 newsletter

We hope you enjoy the end of year festivities. It can be a lot a lot of fun, and it can also take its toll on our wellbeing. We are encouraged to overdo it on shopping, food, drink, merriment, and the pressure of getting it all done.

A little indulgence is great and a deserved treat after you’ve worked so hard the whole year through – but don’t over do it! It really is the season to find some balance.

Find time to sit in candle or firelight, reading or chatting and playing games, to eat nourishing soups and stews, for comfort, warmth and ease on the digestive system, and limit the sweet stuff, so that it’s a real treat when you have it!

Gifting feels good and is a symbolic gesture. And it should be within your means. As well as that, the idea that your gift will sit unused or end in landfill now gives many of us the heebie-jeebies.

Choose simple, gifts with love and a purpose, and wrap with awareness!

And of course we have lots of restorative, yin and breathing classes to help you pace yourself.

Winter is a time to reflect and be thankful, and I would like to say a big thank you to all our students and clients who have supported our centre throughout the year, and all the teachers and practitioners for providing a place of laughter, love, learning, nourishment and care.

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

A Merry Xmas to you all, and a Happy New Year from Sharon and all the teachers and therapists at Dorchester Yoga and Therapy Centre

The Winter Solstice is the time of ending and beginning, a powerful time —
A time to contemplate your immortality.
A time to forgive, to be forgiven, and to make a fresh start.
A time to awaken.
