Welcome to the OCTOBER newsletter

Autumn greetings to you all! So it’s been a busy month with the launch of new classes in Bourne End and Maidenhead, and for me personally it’s been an exciting (but rather tiring!) time buying, renovating and moving into my first home with my husband. I’m delighted to call Maidenhead my home! 
In this issue of the newsletter you will find dates and details of upcoming classes in October, including a new series of classes in Penn from 17th October that follows the Chakra path from base to head on a weekly basis. Advance notice is also provided here of a special Christmas Charity Yoga Practice…you’re invited! Please tune into the website and Facebook page for regular updates on class news in between newsletters.
Om shanti.

**From Tuesday 17th October: Chakra Balancing Practice (Penn)**

On Tuesday 17th October we will start the first in a series of 8 classes that will follow the Chakra path from base of the spine to the crown of the head. The chakras are “wheels” of spiritual power within the human body which, when working harmoniously, support the flow of energy and therefore the connection of body and mind. Whilst these classes are not run as a formal “course” and so it is possible to drop-in on a class by class basis, in order to derive maximum benefit from the practice you are encouraged to attend all 8 sessions. The class timetable sets out a description of what to expect from each class, however please do get in contact if you have any questions.

 

Wednesdays: "Refresh & Restore" Practice (Bourne End)

When: Wednesdays 7:30 - 9pm

Emphasis is on cultivating a nurturing stillness to refresh and restore body and mind. Spaces are limited and so booking is essential.
