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

BOWLS NEWS

MEN’S BOWLS

Tuesday bowls was cancelled again but a few hardy soles stuck around and dodged the showers to have a social game.

On Thursday we had a good field of 35 bowlers with  Busselton’s Rolf and our very own Rob Pollard being the successful team on +16.  The runners up were Boomer on +15. The consolation went to the irrepressible John Cunneen and Geoff Oddy and the prized chocolate award going to Phil Higgins and Linton Thomas.

On Saturday a small but very talented field of bowlers  competed with Wayne Coyle and Garry Bell sharing the spoils on +12
