First Meeting - 29th January in Raphaels Cafe

The Yoga Club launched with our first official pop up meeting on Friday morning.  It was a slow but sure start with just me and new member, Shona, at Raphaels Cafe.  I was very glad to meet Shona and I hope she enjoyed the morning as much as I did.  We spent a lot of time chatting and getting to know each other.  Turned out we had lots in common and although Shona is new to yoga she has links with an ashram in India and spent time there experiencing meditation.  We reflected on the worksheet and talked about the study book "How Yoga Works" and how it puts the Yoga Sutras into context. 

There was time for some chair yoga and we practised the most important poses - sitting and standing, using blocks and chairs for adjustments.  A few cafe customers came in towards the end of our session but the cafe is very large and airy so neither of us felt self conscious.  And following the session we enjoyed coffee and cakes.  The coffee was lovely and the cakes delicious.  Surrounded by windows giving panoramic views of the lake, fountain and park it couldn't have been a better venue.  The cafe staff were very friendly and welcoming.  Owners Alcoyt and Alper were also on hand to help out.

The next session is planned for 26th February at 10am.  At £5 for two hours including coffee and cake it has to be a bargain.  Looking forward to seeing lots more of you at Raphaels next time ....

In the meantime, let me know what you think about the worksheet and how you are getting on with a home practice.  I've also suggested people start a journal to record their thoughts, feelings and progress.

Please use the comments section here to record your thoughts.  Even if you can't come to meeting you can interact with other members here online.

I and my friends appeared to be digesting the excellent items from your web page and suddenly I got a horrible suspicion I had not expressed respect to you for those strategies. All the guys were so glad to read through all of them and now have seriously been taking pleasure in those things. Thanks for actually being quite helpful and for selecting this form of nice subjects most people are really desirous to know about. My personal honest regret for not expressing appreciation to earlier.

I am just writing to let you be aware of of the exceptional experience my wife's girl developed visiting your webblog. She realized so many details, which include how it is like to have an amazing helping heart to get the mediocre ones clearly learn a variety of complicated subject matter. You undoubtedly did more than her expected results. I appreciate you for delivering these good, safe, informative as well as cool tips about your topic to Evelyn.
