Benjamin Finnerty's Yoga Workshop, Brunei

It has been busy for the last two days at Yogi Bliss Studio, with so much information to assimilate, absorb and understand from Benjamin.  From day one, the students learnt how to integrate and engage their muscles effectively in each asana.  Benjamin was patient and his good sense of humor made the students feel at ease during the workshops, which helped to build a student - teacher relationship pretty quickly.

On day two, Benjamin then lead us into our meditational class.  The turnout was great and the students followed through Ben's soothing voice.  There was a glow on everyone's faces when the session ended, and the response from most was, " Hey Jac, when will be able to invite Ben back for more teachings?"

Well, the workshops has been successful, so I would say Ben will be back with us soon enough.

Coldplay's Fix You - Music Matters for Japan (Various Artists)

"Fix You" For Japan

"Fix You"

When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down on your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down on your face
And I...

Tears stream down on your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down on your face
And I...

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you   (Japanese Red Cross Society)

All For A Good Cause

CAS is holding our 6th Activity Day on Sun 15 Jan at Unit 4, Block A, Gadong Muhibbah Complex II from 2 - 4.30pm. We hope to take this opportunity to raise awareness on animal welfare, and the importance of controlling the urban stray and domestic pet population through sterilisation.
Food donations and sponsorships that will go towards the strays’ medical bills and sterilisation costs are welcome on the day. All sponsorships will be supported by medical bills once the funds are utilised. We are also looking for volunteers in several areas which include Administration, Fundraising, Volunteer Coordination, and Rehoming. There are a wide range of positions available that will suit your skills, interests, and time commitments. Please email if you require further information about the roles.
We are also urgently looking for temporary foster homes for our dogs and cats.
Hope you and your friends can come to meet the lovely selection of strays that are still looking for a place to call home
