A note from Carrie:

Yoga is an exploration of self and I encourage my students to turn their attention inward to understand what is real for them in each moment.  I started practicing yoga in 1995 with the news of my first pregnancy. Looking for something that would stretch & strengthen my newly forming body, relax my mind and ease the anxiety of childbirth; yoga was the perfect fit.  Many years later, as a hatha yoga instructor, my vision is to create an open and safe environment in which new and experienced students can comfortably practice.
Students will learn to establish a rhythm using breath and movement while becoming aware of their bodies and creating stillness within their minds. Connecting with their inner messenger and learning how to nurture themselves.   Carrie

As the saying goes, “many hands make light work” as was the case yesterday at the town hall in Cherry Valley.  Glen Wallis, Chair of the Athol Recreation Committee arranged a wonderful day of numerous tasks for a dedicated group of volunteers.  From painting, to completing the kitchen renovation to installing blinds,  all hands were on deck.  Special thanks to the ladies from the Cherry Valley Women’s Institute for providing a lovely lunch for all the volunteers.

Hats off to the volunteer crew of:

Peta Shelton, Ryan Noth (Vice Chair), Tess Girard, Mac Ross, Donna Kaye (Committee Member), John McKinnon, Hri Neil, Ray Patterson, Peter Blendell, Denise Tierney, Diane Ferrier, Ramesh Pooran, Susan Wallis (Treasurer) and Glen Wallis (Chair).

Ping Pong Fun!

Fun was had by all who attended the Ping Pong Tournament this past Sunday in Cherry Valley.  Organized by Donna Kaye,  Joe Skratt and Susan Wallis the event attracted  wonderful players all vying for the Golden Paddle.  Alas after numerous matches and a lovely lunch, there could be only one winner!

Going neck to neck right up until the end was Jeremy Kaye from Cherry Valley and Clarence Rainey from Wellington.  In a dazzling final match Clarence Rainey came out the 2016 Golden Paddle Champ!
