Youth of Kumara - have your say!

Hi all

Council and WestREAP are involved in the process of developing a District wide Youth Strategy to assist in the establishment of activities in Westland specifically for young people and as part of the youth strategy we want to know what young people aged between 12 and 24 years of age think about our community and themselves. If you are in this category, you are invited to participate in the survey by going to the link below  and completing the survey monkey.  

Thanks

Community Picnic @ Dillman's!

Hi Everyone,

As you may have read in the Goldtrails, there was a meeting last month to look at upgrading the Kapitea Reservoir picnic/car park/boat ramp area.  A link to the meeting notes is below. 

KRT will be gathering the relevant info on use, purpose etc and will develop an online survey as well as suggestion box within the community.  

At the KRT General Meeting, we decided to have a community picnic up at the dam, with a possible rubbish clean up if you're keen,  and definitely a relax with fellow Kumara folk. So please tell your neighbours and come along - all welcome.

Looking forward to an end of summer catch up!

My name is Noelle, I am 48 years old, with 2 grown up children...and a wonderful husband.

I have always had a passion for the practice of Yoga.

5 years ago I decided to take this passion one step further and began a Yoga teacher study course.

I am now officially a Yoga Charinini. (That is; a person (female) who studies yoga, and is able to share that growing knowledge with others)

I have a 'Full Sadhka Intergral Yoga Teaching Diploma' from the IYAA ; Integral Yoga Academy of Australasia. Dated March 2013.

To share the joy and health benefits of all aspects of Yoga is a great privilege, I feel humbled to be given the opportunity to do this.

I am purely a messenger of the teachings of the great masters of the past.

The study of Yoga is life-long. It is always a good time to start

We can choose to adopt a few or a lot of the aspects of Yoga - all effort will be beneficial.

Practicing Asana - physical postures is a good way to nourish the body and so, also the mind.

Class atmosphere is always non-competitive, relaxed and flexible. By flexible I mean; if you are not comfortable practicing a particular pose, I will give you an alternative, or will advise you to rest until the next practice. You must listen to your own body, and do what is right for you.

I look forward to sharing Yoga with you.
