Summer Yoga on the Island

Island residents and visitors enjoyed another succesful summer of yoga on the island. There was excellent attendance at each of the morning sessions being held outdoors on the helipad behind the community centre. What an idyllic setting for such an exercise! Thanks to both yoga instructors, Rachael MacLean and Mary Ormond.
