Jellyfish December Newsletter 2014

Jellyfish December Newsletter 2014

Our Mythic Yule month is arriving – my favourite time of year, filled with lights, warmth and magic in the frosty darkness, cosy evenings, mythical artworks, musical events and more – December promises you all many days ahead to enjoy with us at Jellyfish.


Our stunning and thoughtful November exhibition has been bringing up many valuable discussions – sessions of sharing emotions and experiences on parenting and being mothers. A sensitive female exhibition with darker undertones and emotions. I would like to thank Sian Walton, Lisa Evans and Kate Hyland for creating and sharing their inviting universe with us, bringing depth, thoughts and involvement in our lovely community. An exhibition to remember!

Yoga Classes at Jellyfish:

Every Wednesday from 6-730pm with Kim Edwards:
An end of day yoga class to restore and strengthen us in body, mind and spirit.
With a focus on good, comfortable posture and breathing; strength and stability of core muscles; safe practice; overall integrity (physical emotional mental spiritual)

Over the course of a lifetime our needs change. The breadth and depth of yoga practices available to us means that yoga remains a lifelong practice. Research shows that in the long term yoga is more effective than other therapies in helping to maintain physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. With 25 years of teaching experience as a qualified yoga teacher and therapist and many years more of my own yoga practice, I aim to support each person as they explore yoga as a way of meeting their ever changing, individual needs.
