May 2023 newsletter

We’ve just passed Beltane, the Gaelic May Day festival that marks the beginning of Summer.

Trees are bursting into blossom and glorious shades of bright green are appearing all around, and… dare I say it some sunshine.

All the seeds of Winter’s dreaming can begin to gather strength, draw energy and start to grow.

Workshops in May

We have some really special workshops this month and next month, that offer the chance for lots of growth, and we are very excited to have old teachers rejoining us with new classes.

Victoria Smisek, who used to teach Qoya at the centre, is offering a Women’s retreat day with Mindfulness and Qoya.


Jane Collison is offering a 3-hour introductory kinesiology workshop for the first time. She has taught Foundation and Practitioner courses at the centre, but is offering this workshop to anyone, so that you can use the techniques at home to help your own health. You will have the chance to learn how to muscle test, to find out what supplements you need, what foods agree or disagree with you and what flower essences may help your emotions. This workshop will be repeated on June 25th.


Kim Mackie is offering the chance to learn Sun salutation to suit you as a daily practice.


New classes

We are so pleased to have back two of our old teachers:

Toni Franklin is offering a monthly Yin Workshop on the last Friday of the Month, 6:00 – 7:30pm

Jess Obermeier will be teaching a weekly Balance Relax Yoga class starting on 12th May on Fridays 9:15 – 10:15am

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

“Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers,
the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters,
and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.”
