January, 2016

Hi Everyone,

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a very happy Christmas and that 2016 has begun well for you and your loved ones.

Is it a long time since you attended yoga classes at the Mud Hut? Or, anywhere for that matter? Or didn’t you ever ‘quite’ get started?

Maybe 2016 will be the year for you to consider taking the time to fit in some ‘me’ time. Yoga is a time to nurture yourself holistically: physically, mentally, emotionally & spiritually (whatever that may mean for you). At the Mud Hut you can do this in a beautiful, calm and welcoming environment. There are 10 classes offered each week including general, gentle, kids & blokes (blokes can actually come to any classes but there is one reserved just for blokes). Plus an Introductory course that runs for the first 5 weeks of each term. This term the Introductory Course starts on THURSDAY 28TH JANUARY (that’s NEXT week!!) There is something for everyone.

REMEMBER: If you can breathe, you can do yoga. Please don’t hesitate to give me a call if you have any queries or would like to join one of our classes.

TERM 1 begins on WEDNESDAY 27th January.

The first class for the term will be a NEW ONE –* Yoga with Cathy* on WEDNESDAY @ 7.00pm.Many of you will have had a chance to experience a class with Cathy during 2015 and again during the current Holiday Program. The feedback has all been extremely positive so this is a great opportunity to try something different – maybe this day and time works well for you, or you would like a change, or you might like to add a regular second class, or perhaps you might like to attend this class casually just to try it out and enhance your current yoga practice. The addition of an extra class will also make it easier to “make up” missed classes.


This 5 week course will begin on Thursday 28th January 6.00pm – 7.30pm. The cost is $80.00 which includes a comprehensive information booklet. Last term this course was very popular and worked well to assist people to get a feel for yoga before joining a regular class. If you know anyone who might be interested please mention this to them and get them to give me a call for details. It’s really good for people to be organized to start with the first session. Also, any regular students who would like to come along to some, or all, the classes in this course may do so at no cost.


Loretta will be running 4 classes for Kids this term (Feb 10 & 24, March 9 & 23). These classes will be for Primary School aged children and will run on Wednesday @ 4.15pm-5.15pm. If you know any kids interested (Primary or Secondary) please let us know as Loretta is happy to change the times & age groups according to demand. The kids who have been attending have all enjoyed the classes and their parents report noticeable positive, beneficial changes to the overall well-being of their children over time. For example, improved sleep patterns, calmer children, using breathing to control short temper (we can all use this one!) and many other things. The cost is very reasonable: $10 per session & there is a 50% discount for siblings!


Easter is early this year so this will be quite a short term – so make sure you’re organized to get started at the beginning. There are 7 to 9 classes depending on what day you attend class (there is a Monday public Holiday and we finish Easter Thursday). I have been going through my attendance records. Term 4 is always the busiest of the year so more people struggle to attend class regularly. Despite this the overall attendance rates were really good for term 4. WELL DONE!

HOLIDAY PROGRAM: Everyone I have spoken to who has taken advantage of the continuation of classes over the summer break has been very positive! A BIG thank you to Cat & Marie for sharing the class load and making this possible!!

I will look forward to seeing you all as we start a new term.
