Thursday Evening Classes

Yoga

Yoga is a time set aside to meet up with yourself (a rare thing) and stretch, breath and find some stillness. Yoga introduces you to techniques to slow down, develop your awareness and refine your concentration. Through stretching and maintaining the postures we become stronger, more supple, and more confident. Soon you find there is no competition in yoga and you work at your own level.

Dominique Holowina is a local yoga teacher; she has been teaching for 40 years in and around the County. She has trained extensively with the British Wheel of Yoga and the British School of Shiatsu-Do.

For specific enquiries ring Dominique on 01522 595356.

 

Acoustic Guitar   TERM ONE ONLY

Beginner to Intermediate/Folk to Rock

Allan Johnson is an experienced tutor having taught at Lincoln College for many years. He is a dedicated musician who has been teaching & performing for a long time. He is eager to teach a group of students, rather than one-to-one, so he can build from the mutual support within the group and extend the individual musical experience to include tunes and songs which are easy to recognise and learn.

His teaching progresses from a few necessary chords to the playing of popular and folk styles from the 60’s onwards.  There is very little theory and no musical notation to learn.  A minimum of 5 and a maximum of 10 students are accepted into this course.

 

Spanish  

Spanish classes are 4.30pm-5.30pm (beginners) and 5.30pm-7pm (intermediate)

Aurelie Dale is a native French and fluent Spanish speaker who has lived in England for the past three decades and worked as a language consultant in various schools, as well as providing adult tuition on numerous occasions. Her aim is to provide a friendly and enjoyable environment, enabling people of a wide range of abilities to thrive regardless of their past experience - making her classes accessible to all.

If you would like to learn Spanish and share the culture as a beginner or if you have previous experience and wish to improve your foreign language, please feel free to join her on Thursdays.

Nettleham Community Choir

Extended timings – 6.30pm – 8.30pm.

The mighty Nettleham Community Choir led by experienced and energetic choir leader Liz McIntosh. They sing all sorts of songs, suiting many tastes. No one has to sing on their own or read music; among their members are complete beginners, experienced singers, confident voices and people who think they can't (or shouldn't) sing! Members are encouraged and supported to sing, to perform (if that's something you'd like to try) and to develop their own voice.

If you would like to join, please contact Liz directly on 07713746679 or nettlehamcommunitychoir@gmail.com  to find out more details.

Saturday Morning Activities

In conjunction with SoundLincs and local conductor Mary Michell we are delighted to offer the continuation of this wonderful musical opportunity for the community. Aimed at musicians who want to play in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere – these workshops offer the opportunity to brush the cobwebs off your instrument and playing skills in a supportive environment.  All you need is your instrument and a music stand to join a friendly group of enthusiastic amateur musicians capturing the joy of playing music together but where the emphasis is very much on fun.
