On resumption - Each Friday (during school terms only) – 9:30am to 10:30 am Gold coin donation for charity.
Held in our Church building. Started in 2015, during our first full year, ie. 2016, we attracted between 14 and 22 people each day, who enjoyed the sessions.
This has continued onto 2020 (with the break for Covid-19) as Heather and her helpers lead us through the movements. You would also be welcome to join us!
No binding commitment required, just come when you can – many have holidays or other things to do . Our leader Heather would love to introduce you to her activity.
Both women and men join in, so you are invited to come along and try it out!

Lotus movements Video: Follow the movements and say these words ..
The Emperor comes to the pagoda at the edge of the water, and watches as a gentle breeze rustles the leaves
He looks down the lake, and sees a turtle treading water
Nearby a snow rabbit is digging in the thawed earth
Across the lake a young maiden scoops up water, and sprinkles it on the earth
A lotus plant puts down its roots
and sends up a beautiful flower
The wise man in the village tests the wind in the east, and he tests the wind in the west
The Emperor lifts the sky
then presses the earth
he gathers energy from the earth
As he looks across the lake he sees a while crane spread its wings in the morning sun
The snow rabbit still digs the earth
A gentle breeze is rustling the leaves
and day has begun!
