You may have seen this on my FACEBOOK PAGE.

The BIKE SHED are aiming to fix 50 bikes for vulnerable families by the end of winter, helping break a viscous cycle. They need help to achieve this.. It doesn’t require a big commitment, and most importantly, it’s all for a great cause, and could be a great opportunity to meet like-minded folk.

WHO? Everyone is welcome

WHERE? The Bike Shed, Macedon Nursery and Garden Supplies, Nursery Road, Macedon

WHEN? Thursday mornings through Autumn and Winter from 9:30am to 1:00pm and

Call Lara a call on 0424 599 168 or Bronwyn on 0409 284 141 for more info, or just show up on a Thursday morning to join in!

 

FOUNDATION ART SHOW

REDS RESTAURANT, Sunday the 27th May at 2pm.  Mark this date in your diary.

The coming art show needs you too. This is how WE raise money to assist teaching YOGA and SPIRITUALITY to people in drug rehabilitation. It is challenging work, and mostly pro-bono (volunteer). All the money we make goes into the Foundation… PLEASE, PLEASE we need you….

 

WHY THE FOUNDATION?  

It is simple. The government has always been reluctant to fund yoga programs, and that has a flow on effect. The amount of yoga/meditation and yoga philosophy classes that are needed and wanted by people going through rehab, cannot be supported. So we have always supported out own work. The need has never been greater. At the present time, I personally am doing 8 PRO BONO classes per week. 6 yoga, one meditation and one yoga philosophy. The fact I am not being paid is having a great POSITIVE effect on my result. The students know I am there because I believe in what I do, and they start with me ready to work hard.

We have some wonderful, wonderful patrons, but we need your help too. I want to widen our scope. More FREE classes for more people recovering from addictions. HOW TO HELP? Come to our exhibitions, buy from ETSY, take our programs. Everything we make through the institute goes to help.. You can help, you can make our work possible.

REGISTRATION – CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENT.

We have fallen in line with other organisations and ask people who are registered with us and wish to re-register to do at least one short course in the year as a continuing education requirement. You need to keep up. You can do one of my little courses on ETSY, or someone else’s, doesn’t have to be onerous, just something to keep you on your academic toes so to speak.
