We’ve had a little bit of everything weather wise this month and the holidays have now settled upon us.  It’s a strange time in many ways because some things get busier and other things get really quiet, but B Healthy Together runs events all through Summer until our core sessions start up again in August.

Our chair exercise group said a huge thankyou to Yvonne, our instructor, who is now on annual leave and who works tirelessly to deliver great fitness sessions in St David’s at Broomhouse.  The chair exercise group will restart on Wednesday August 14th.

We also had the last session of the Mindfulness where we went to a rain soaked Saughton Park to try some mindfulness walking practice.  The people who finished the course were pretty hardy and enjoyed the 7 weeks of meditation practice.  Hopefully they can now take these practices home and work on them over the Summer to add another way of managing the complexities of modern living.

Our Friday walking group continues through the Summer, meeting at 10 am at our vegetable shop in Broomhouse and we are planning a few trips further afield to truly stretch the legs of our fearless striders.  We recently went to the canal at Hailes Quarry Park and saw an abundance of life on the water including ducks, swans, many wildflowers and water loving plants – a pleasing legacy after freight and traffic ceased to rule the inland waterways.
