Women invited to join the Sacred Circle

Dorianne Kohl of Armstrong said self-healing and yoga has made a difference in her life

A longtime instructor of yoga, drama and the healing arts, Dorianne Kohl offers a course for women in Armstrong, beginning Oct. 2.

“Sacred Circle” is the term she uses to describe the course. Based on the “medicine wheel” teachings, the “circle” implies not only equality amongst participants, but purposeful acknowledgement of the “medicine wheel,” which is inclusive of all seasons, elements, races and ages. This teaching encourages students to include their emotional, spiritual and mental bodies (as well as the physical body) into the practice.

“As a woman who has practised yoga and self-healing for more than 40 years — as well as receiving comprehensive instruction in the art forms of healing — I am continually amazed at the difference this practice has made in my life,” said Kohl.

The course will be held at the Zion United Church Hall, Armstrong, Wednesdays from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. from Oct. 2 to Nov. 27. Pre-registration is required, along with a commitment for the course. To register, please call Kohl at 250-546-9886.

Students will need a mat, blanket and comfortable clothing.
