‘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.

Pennants

With their win over Dunsborough Blue in the first Saturday round of the Leeuwin League, Dunsborough White are presently fourth on the ladder and Dunsborough Blue in seventh place. Dunsborough Gold had a bye.

Having beaten Busselton Red on both rinks at home last Tuesday our Dunsborough 1st side are sharing top place in the first division of the Southwest Bowling League.

Winning on just one rink, away to Binningup, and losing the aggregate, our 2nd side are placed seventh in the third division of the SWBL.

Playing their home game at Capel, our 3rd side lost to Brunswick on both rinks and are low down on the fourth division ladder.

For more detailed results see the Pennants notice board.

Thursday peg-draw

Despite the threatening rain there was a good turnout last week which saw Ralph Don and Norm Gage (both playing with a third arm) take first prize after a tie with Graeme Winter and Wally Dawson, by 2 wins +11, was decided by a toss of the coin, when ends up were also tied. Consolations went to Merv Mott/Bevan Badger and Kelly Allsop/Hans Queckfeldt, with Clive Williams sharing the chocolate with Johnny Cunneen.
