We had a lovely group of eight in last night for a Candlelit Yoga and Supper Evening with Laura.
With the hall lit just by candles and the fire, Laura led a gentle restorative yoga hour, where we used the bolsters, cushions and blocks to assist our practice.
After a delicious (and nutritious!) supper of soup, brownie bites and warming drinks, we then returned to our mats, snuggling under duvets and warmed eye masks.
Laura talked us through a short relaxation and meditation, followed by a sound session, where she uses quartz bowls, tibetan bowls and koshi bells.
Sound Meditation has many benefits
It quietens the mind, promotes wellbeing, inner peace and calmness and feedback from our many evenings say a good night's sleep afterwards is the best one!
Our next evening is on Tuesday 23 March
7pm - 9:30pm
Book Now as places are limited and tend to go very quickly
We had a very productive Pen & Wash Class with Claire
Fur and Feathers
The pictures were fantastic, especially as we had several people who had never tried Pen & Wash before.
We concentrated on furry animals in the morning, with the birds following after lunch.

Lucy joined us on Tuesday to run our first
Freehand Machine Embroidery Class
Everyone brought along their own machine, so that they could get used to working Freehand on it, whilst using the right programmes and 'foot'.
Lucy brought along baskets and cases full of colourful fabrics.
After some demonstrations, the creativity got under way and everyone chose a variety of animals, birds and flowers to practice with .... they all had so much character!
below is Colin the Crow
We had a break for lunch, a delicious fish pie followed by these little chocolate, pear and almond pots served with cream.
Here are a few more of the creations from the day ...
