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

    We may be small in numbers but through your efforts  we manage to keep an 18 Hole Course in pretty good condition despite the weather and the physical effort required. You can all be proud of your contribution  and the social atmosphere we  share and enjoy  after the game .  At DDCC , Golf is more than just a game.
