Yoga for over 50’s’ at Dunsborough and Districts Country Club for ladies AND gentlemen !!

– Beginners welcome !

In the words of local Dunsborough resident and yoga instructor Mandy Lancellas ‘I thrive on encouraging those who feel they ‘can’t do yoga’ to become those who can, by exploring the multiple benefits for the body, mind and soul. Gentle Hatha Yoga enables the body and mind to find calm and focus in the present moment. It is through breath awareness that we manage to realign our physical body with the mental and energetic systems. Our main focus is safe and effective alignment, to create awareness, strength and mobility. As we grow older the saying of ‘what we do not use, we loose’ begins to resonate with us more and more and so its vital to keep the body moving in a gentle and safe way, maintaining a healthy range of movement throughout our senior years and reducing the risks of injury.’

Mandy invites anyone who is interested to join this gentle and safe yoga practice, suitable for all levels including beginners and people over 50.

Date: Wednesdays

Time: 9:00 am

Venue: Dunsborough and Districts Country Club

Cost: $15

* Please bring a blanket for relaxation (as well as your own yoga mat if you have one).

For any queries (or to book a yoga mat) please call Mandy Lancellas 0475057294

Tuesday Mixed Social

We had another good fun day and some very good bowls played throughout the day.  Merle Holmes was first into the final followed by Norm Gage, Gary Robinson Barb Kerruish.  Gary proved too strong in the 4 end final and won the day.  Good going.

Hope yo see everyone again next Tuesday.

On Thursday we had a good field of 37 bowlers with the winners being Len Mazza and Phil Higgins,

The runners-up were Ralph and Ken Holyoake, the consolation to Wayne Coyle and Garry Robinson and the prized chocolate award to Andre Gil ( where was Geoff) and Linton Thomas.

On Saturday we had 20 players who experienced beautiful sunny conditions. The winners were Denis Frost and runners- up Christine Coyle and Andre Gil.
