Penny Horner will be teaching a new ‘vinyassa flow’ yoga class on alternate Saturday afternoons in the Community Centre, starting on October 24th, from 3pm - 4pm.

In vinyassa yoga, each pose flows with the breath into the next and helps to build flexibility, strength and a deep sense of relaxation. The class will be suitable for those new to yoga as well as more experienced practitioners as options are available for all poses to suit the needs and abilities of those in the class.

The first class on October 24th will be a FREE TASTER CLASS – so do come along and give it a try. Subsequent classes will be £5 a session.

Please bring a yoga mat to the class if you have one. Contact Penny if not as she might be able to help.

Penny has been practicing yoga for many years and is just completing a training course to be a registered Yoga Alliance teacher at Meadowlark yoga in Edinburgh, where she has also been teaching.

Please get in touch with Penny if you have any questions about the yoga. She can be contacted at pennyhorner1@btconnect.com

Learning Centre Courses: A Survey

From Dale Meegan:

As we start to plan courses for the autumn and winter I thought it would be good to check out the sort of courses you might be interested in. We also have some new people in the area since the last survey was done and for those of you who are used to what’s on offer at the Learning Centre, this is a good time to tell us of any repeats, refreshers or new ideas you might have.

The survey is brief and there will be paper copies available in the shop and Community Centre so please take time to complete one over the next couple of weeks. We will be drawing two completed surveys out of a ‘hat’ after the 25th September deadline and the winner will receive a £50 and the runner-up a £20 Amazon voucher.

Dale Meegan, Rural Learning Manager - West Highland College UHI - Kilchoan
