Yoga is more than just physical stretching exercises.  The Breathing Exercises, Asanas, Relaxation & Meditation are all part of the one whole, which is Yoga.  All four techniques are inter-related and when practiced together bestow health, happiness & self confidence.  The Asanas are a combination of exercises that relax, energise & rejuvenate the whole body, relieving muscular tension & discomfort.  They keep the body flexible & increase joint & spine mobility.  Relaxation & Meditation practice results in a natural sense of peace & a clear thinking mind.
Classes suit all age groups, & are for both men & women. Beginners welcome. Individuals vary in strength and flexibility so Yoga practice will be unique to each person. Each person practices within their own comfort zone.

Walking
The beauty of Macleay Island can be seen from the Heritage Trail which winds its away around parts of the island. Take a short stroll or make a day of it with a picnic lunch. Have a swim at Pat’s Park or a barbecue on Dalpura Beach. On Macleay Island, there’s time to sit back and enjoy the moment.

Wednesday sailing on Macleay Island
Most Wednesdays a small group of keen sailors gather at Dalpura Bay, Macleay Island at 9am to enjoy sailing the local waters, mainly in small dinghies. This activity is. of course. weather dependent.
The numbers vary from a few to seven or so. While the group also welcome fibreglass boat owners, most of the sailors are members of the Wooden Boat Association of Queensland and are a very friendly lot.
They are regularly joined by sailors from Coochiemudlo Island and Victoria Point with occasional visitors from further afield.
The day’s event is loosely organised. with the sailors gathering on the water to the west of Macleay Island where a lunch destination is decided.
If you’d like to see these pretty craft and chat to folks with a love of wooden boats, mostly home built then just pop down and say hi. Be careful though as their passion is infectious.
