Yoga Classes for Autumn 2014

Ocean Spirit
Springtime is coming!

Welcome to our February newsletter as we move towards spring!
Running in line with the seasons, on return from Easter break we will begin our summer term of 14 weeks. Prices will be updated on the website. This commitment will enable the children and the teachers to establish a rhythm and connection which will enhance learning… Yoga poses befitting of the season will be taught with the classes.

It’s very easy for us to lose sight of our dreams and visions, and in our hectic lives we can become disconnected from them.  Yoga has been in my life for over 25yrs now. I have not just taught yoga but I have allowed its philosophy to permeate and enrich my day to day. I hold the same vision for our swim school, creating a centre where one can become not only an exceptional swimmer but also carry the deeper values of our teaching out into our day to day lives. Running the term with the seasons establishes a rhythmic cycle within the learning process which brings us closer to the pattern of nature. The ocean, the forest, the world we live in.

This has inspired me to set up our first family Yoga/Surf mindful retreat… we are currently negotiating with an amazing venue and you can register your interest HERE. We will send you more information as soon as we have firm details available.

“Your body is the child of the soul. You must nourish and train your child. Physical health is not a commodity to be bargained for. Nor can it be swallowed in the form of drugs and pills. It has to be earned through sweat.” – BKS Iyengar.

Lastly please take a look at our Easter intensive course which will be held at Peacehaven Heights for beginners and intermediates and at Ovingdean for older children.
The intensive runs from Tuesday 29th March to Friday 1st April. The sessions will run for 30 min every day. All major strokes will be taught and reinforced with work on technique and skillset.  There will be an emphasis on the importance of a healthy body and mind which will lead naturally through to our practice of a relevant yoga pose.  The intensive classes present a great opportunity for toddlers who are a little reluctant to be in the water. The consistency of swimming every day enhances and builds confidence. As with all special classes, we have to keep numbers limited in order to deliver the best quality of teaching so book early to avoid disappointment. Contact Trina HERE to request more info or to reserve a place.
If you wish to swim next term, all payments are to be made by Monday 8th February (5 week term).

Thank you all.

PLEASE NOTE: No photographs or video are to be taken poolside. This is an absolute rule and cannot be overridden I’m afraid. We have to protect the privacy of children who’s parents have not given their permission for photographs to be taken. Please respect their wishes.
