My number is 620990629
I am not allowed any more dogs but I really don’t want to see them put down.
Kind regards Liz    Near Motril (Granada)

For those who love AC/DC, Bon Jovi, Guns ‘n Roses, Van Halen, Led Zeppelin, Eurythmics, Dire Straits and other icons of 80s Rock then there is no better covers band to go and see than Stereo 80!Doors open at 8pm and the concert starts with rock tracks straight away from a full Festival sound and lighting stage, live music from 9pm   Tickets are 16€ for advance purchase and 20€ on the night.

What’s on- Yoga  My name is Kiki Trenew. I am practising Yoga since nearly 16 years and it changed my life. To understand Yoga you have to practise regular. With increasing practise your power, confidence & well-being will grow slowly. Your view will go to the inside and this will make a change in your life. With yoga, you can also correct postural damage such as kyphosis.    Everybody can practise my Yoga whatever age or physical condition. I always work in little groups and i will adapt the Yoga posture to every single student. I mix Ayur Yoga, therapeutic Yoga, Yin Yoga & Vinyasa Flow Yoga – the basic you will find in Hatha Yoga. Every class can be different as i always work in needs of my students. Come along and try out and learn to boost & stretch in a healthy way: Mondays 12.15 h Yoga for everybody in Torrox & 20.30 h Yoga for everybody in Nerja  Wednesdays 10.30 h Yoga for golfers (men only) in Nerja & 20.15 h Yin Yoga in Torrox   Thursdays 18 h Yoga for everybody in Torrox People who call me for information often ask what for people are in the group to know if there fit in especially with their age. All of these groups will suit everybody, but to give you an idea some more details to the groups: The monday group in Torrox is a mixture of women & men 65plus. The monday night class in Nerja is a mixture of women between 35 and 60 with different nationalities. The men golfers class on Wednesday in Nerja are men 70plus. The Yin Yoga class on Wednesday night in Torrox are women & men all ages. Yin Yoga is a passive Yoga, very easy & kind and with lots of adaption. The Thursdays group in Torrox are women & men between 40-70.For those who don’t like to work in a group, i offer one-to-one sessions (as well with your partner or best friend) in Nerja or at your residence.For more information don’t hesitate to call me +34 627 411 358, to email me info.solyoga@gmail.com or visit my website: www.solyoga.es.


What’s on U3A Invitation – Clarification.  A couple of days ago, we posted an invitation to participate in the U3A Munch Bunch Lunch to take place on Friday the 16th on Burriana Beach.  A number of Digame readers replied, some with humorous wording which made my day.  Those replies had two concerns: 1) Was the cost of their lunch included in the invitation? and 2) What is U3A??  U3A stands for the University of the 3rd Age, based on the British U3A.  We are a diverse membership of international individuals (about 160 members) who choose activities of their choice.  You can find out more by going to www.u3aaxarquia.com.  As for the lunch at Bruxelles at 1pm on the 16th, you are welcome to join us that day to get to know us; each person pays for their lunch.  Please, first confirm by this coming Friday.  I welcome any further questions at norma2kk @ aol.com (no spaces).  Thank you to all who replied!!    norma2kk@aol.com
