This is part of the programme of Prestbury Cancer Care Centre, meeting in the Methodist Church in Prestbury. This session is not Dru Yoga but rather movement to music, and relaxation.
There was a successful pilot set of sessions at Wythenshawe hospital through March and April with good feedback from those attending in 2017. MacMillan are due to extend their premises in the hospital during the spring of 2018, and after that Dru sessions will resume. Building work has been delayed but should be finished some time this year.
For all sessions please wear loose comfortable clothing and don't eat for an hour and a half or so before the session. Please bring a mat and blanket if you can, though there are some spares.
Drop in or attend regularly.
I attend The Heart of Manchester Sangha, part of the Zen buddhist Community of Interbeing following the teaching of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, which meets every Sunday night at the Unitarian church, and sometimes facilitate this group. If you would like to join us for meditation 7.30 to 9 p.m. you would be welcome. Payment is £2/3 donation towards room hire. It is fine to just turn up - session starts promptly at 7.30. p.m., ends at 9.30. Most people sit on chairs - no compulsory lotus postures!
