Yoga Day in Hull, 14th July 2007

This day of yoga took place in the Destiny Leisure centre in Hull, arranged by Lesley Wadforth.

It was a lovely day during which we enjoyed a morning yoga session lead by Louise Hebblewhite, followed by a meditation led by Alison Tucker. After a very nice shared lunch and raffle, Lesley ran an aromatherapy hand massage workshop, before Alison Carline finished the day with a gentle stretch and yoga nidra. We went home very relaxed!

The day raised over £350. We are always very grateful to everyone who gives their time and energy to organize an event or to teach during the day but special mention needs to be made this time to the people who have been affected by such terrible flooding but still came along with big smiles on their faces and helped make it such a successful and enjoyable day.

Yoga and MS course - Haybergill in Cumbria, 29th May - 3rd June 2007

A group of yogis who have MS and their helpers all met together at Haybergill, in Cumbria for a week of Yoga, meditation and relaxation. This is the second week which has taken place at the venue and was equally well received.

The week was excellent - very well planned and organised at a purpose built centre which catered for everyone really well.

The programme began every day with a 90 minute yoga session led by excellent teachers. Each session had a different focus and was designed to encourage attendees to add new and helpful practices to their normal yoga routine at home. A group meditation was held every day for those who wanted to join in & most did.

Afternoon sessions included talks and some participation with Qi Gong & Kinesiology, flower remedies, homeopathy & crystal healing. Other related yoga topics eg yoga nidra, a deep healing relaxation, were enjoyed by all.

Haybergill is an excellent venue but we are also looking for others & hope to expand into different parts of the country until we have a centre of our own.

National Event - Staverton Park, 27th - 29th April 2007

Our second national event took place at the Staverton Park Hotel in Northamptonshire at the end of April.

Careful planning and wonderful teachers ensured that the programme was full and varied. There were always two different sessions on offer which meant that there was something for everyone… and occasionally difficult choices to be made!

There was great camaraderie throughout the weekend and many people went home having made new friends.

The weekend acknowledged that we are all unique and so are our needs, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
