Another great day out as we practiced our yoga on the old bowling green at Hopetoun House in the sunshine with a record turnout of 19 and the weather was great apart for just one minute of light drizzle. We hugged trees and had a spectacular picnic as usual.

Lodge St John have dedicated 2011 as the year they ‘Celebrate by Helping Others’ They are sharing their funds raised equally between the West Lothian Children’s Panel & West Lothian Young Carers.

We like to support local charities and the class members choose each year who we will support. Every penny taken on the evening goes directly to the chosen cause. 

 

I’m a tree, I’m a walking tree
I am a walking tree
with my feet on the ground 
and my head in the sky
As our hearts join together
Heaven and Earth in me.

 words and is dedicated to all in the class
