Rocky Point inspires yoga sessions
Delphine Shea

A yoga instructor will use the natural surroundings at Rocky Point to inspire her students over the summer.

Delphine Shea held a yoga lesson at the beach at Rocky Point on this year’s summer solstice and said it had gone great.

“I’ve been speaking to a geologist and he said the rock formations at Rocky Point were once connected to Antarctica,” she said.

“He also said because the rocks go so deep down into the earth, they are connected to the Himalayas.

“As this is yoga, it will be a great way to get in touch with the world around us.”

Miss Shea will hold yoga lessons at Rocky Point from 6am to 7am each Tuesday and Saturday starting January 5 until March.

“This weekend it’s going to be a gold donation to participate,” she said.

“It will be the first time I have held lessons like this besides the summer solstice session.

“It was lovely then, we had dolphins swim by during the lesson.”

Miss Shea said a friend who was a midwife told her long ago, Aboriginal women would travel to Rocky Point to give birth.

“It is such a special place, it’s out in the open, in the morning with fresh air, it’s going to be beautiful,” she said.
