Yoga News - have you thought about starting Gentle Yoga? (Thursdays at 11:30)

Gentle Yoga is good for anybone who would like to get a good stretch. We work on twists to help keep the energy flowing, prevent stagnation in the vital organs and work on chest openers and deep stretches to keep muscles from shortening.
We use chairs and props so it is adapted to all kinds of bodies. We also practice some pranayama (breathing). The Gentle Yoga Classes are on Thursday Morings at 11:30.

Squash News - 5 December - Team 1 beat IBM 3-2!

Team 1 had a big match tonight against IBM, equal top of the pool.
Greg and David started at numbers 5 and 4. David won 3-1 and Greg lost 16-14 in the fifth after an epic comeback from 2:0 down. Next up, Aurélien at 3, won 3-0, and Alec at 1, also won 3-0 against a tricky player who wasn't able to play his usual shots. Last up, Jean-Guillaume against a very good Dan, was tired from business travel, lost 3-1, but will win next time!
 
So 3-2 victory for SAC Team 1!
