The Launch 2016
Just eight months ago the Class of February 2016 were learning how to sharpen chisels and make dovetail joints.  Now they’re making boats as part of their training on our intensive 38 week ‘Boat Building, Maintenance and Support’ course.  You can read what brought each student to the Academy on their Class page and follow the progress of the boat builds here.
The boats will be led from the Boat Building Academy’s workshops on Monmouth Beach to the slipway at Lyme Regis Harbour. Champagne corks will pop and at 1200, each boat will be launched into the water for the first time. The launch will celebrate the achievements of the class, the end of their training at the Academy and the start of their new lives as boat builders. Whatever the weather, we hope you can join the celebrations.  At 1130 the boats will be led from the Academy’s workshops on Monmouth Beach to the slipway at Lyme Regis Harbour.

Saturday 26th
  
Switch-on Saturday

Gong Bath
Come along and enjoy total relaxation and listen to the vibration healing sounds of gongs.  Gong baths are a powerful way to bring your body and mind into balance.  A gong bath can shift your being from a state of suffering into a state of healing and clarity.  During a gong bath or after relaxation, some people may feel extremely relaxed, or may experience a spontaneous release of feelings.  Your body will naturally tune in and create a resonance with the sound. Each Gong works on a different part of you. Energetically, emotionally, spiritually, and physically, there is no part that will not receive the sound.  A sound bath offers an opportunity to experience the restorative power of sound.  As our bodies are comprised mainly of water, cells in our bodies resonate with sound vibrations which offer a non-invasive massage enabling physical and emotional energy to become unblocked and tension to be unreleased often to be energised. £10 (concessions available).  Telephone Sandra for more information or to book on 07709799331 or go to www.cosycorner.yoga  10.45-12.15 at The Hub, Church Street
