Yoga Tuesday mornings at 9.30am

My classes take a mindful approach to traditional hatha yoga, where we aim to step away from our normal mode of "automatic pilot" and instead focus on each breath, each sensation as it arises. Classes are suitable for all levels and you just need to bring yourself and some comfortable clothing. For more information contact me Su on 07745026880 or Facebookcom/mindfulnessYogawithSu

Conversation topics cover daily life as well as topical and cultural aspects of France, and carries on informally over a coffee break, after which the end of the lessons focuses on the reading of a French novel. The group is taught by French native guitarist and Sorbonne University graduate Anne Chaurand who occasionally incorporates guitar accompanied singing in the class.

For the love of paws daytime and evening classes

Fancy some fun classes for you and you dog? At For The Love Of Paws, I run positive, force free group training classes for both pups and adult dogs. All the training is fun based and I use up to date scientific methods. We learn focus, bonding, calmness, obedience, manners, polite greetings and much more. I even have advanced levels to work towards if you find the class work fun and would like to progress further with your doggie. If it is not the usual dog training you are looking for, I also offer enrichment, confidence building, fun agility and game courses. These courses are really beneficial for your dog and helps work their minds!! It is a great way to have some fun with your dog, and it also shows you how your dog learns and really builds their confidence. These are great fun for both you and your dog. Do you have a dog which doesn’t like groups or other dogs but would still like to have a go at the training? Don’t worry, I offer my courses for solo dogs too so do get in touch and I can tailor make a plan for you!! Classes are held at the gymnasium hall, Community Centre, Castle Douglas and also an outdoor venue at Auchencairn. I have both daytime and evening classes available. Get in touch with Kara through the following methods for further information: email – or phone/text – 07384395206 or through Facebook at For The Love Of Paw/p>
