Pilates for paddlers – NOTE time changes

Reminder of Pilates classes, if you haven’t stretched your boundaries, or your hamstrings lately, this is for you.

Pilates is great for the prevention of injuries and will create flexibility, mobility, stability and core strength, which will help you to sit taller and be stronger and faster in your boat

Classes will be every Wednesday 6 – 7, 7 – 8 and 8 – 9. Friday mornings from 7 – 8 am. 

Your first Pilates session will be free of charge, thereafter R100 pp per class, Juniors R50. *(please bring your own mat)

You are welcome to bring your wives, friends and kids along. (Afternoon classes can be arranged if there is a demand).

Call Sonja if you have any queries on 084 9119881 or bons@iafrica.com

 

Pad drive – an amazingly good cause

Some of you may have heard of this already, Andile from Adreach is doing a Pad drive in September 2018.

So it’s a campaign that is based around Mandela Day but has been stretched into 67 Days.

He is collecting sanitary towels from willing corporates, friends and schools and handing them over to the schools he works with (4 in the South, 4 in the North) Soweto and Alexandra.

We’ve already managed to get 44 000 and the aim is to get 67 000  sanitary towels. Would really love for Dabs members to partake in this initiative. Help a girl child not miss school!
