Tennis Event

**********************************

‘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).

* Yoga mats available for hire $3

For any queries (or to book a yoga mat) please call Mandy Lancellas 047 505 7294

New Members who join the Dunsborough Country Club in October will receive a complimentary lesson.

CROQUET NEWS

Last week croquet in the south west started the annual golf pennants against Busselton. Moorabinda (Bunbury) and Dunsborough.  Everything went great, and the players played well.  Dunsborough, like the other clubs involved has two teams in the pennants this year.  Go Dunsborough.  We won the shield last year so hopefully we can retain it again this year.  (No pressure teams)

Many thanks to the croquet members for organising the morning tea and assisting with the scoring.  Also thank you to the players who came along to watch and support the teams.

My husband said if I don’t give up croquet he’s leaving.  GOSH I WILL MISS HIM….
