Yoga for Golf Coffee Morning

71 Renfrewshire County Ladies, along with some of our golfing friends, enjoyed the first fund raising event for our Centenary Year in 2009 at Whitecraigs Golf Club.
Those who attended left feeling that it was a most informative and entertaining morning as well as being beneficial to the start of the golfing season.
Janice Stewart of Par Yoga, who has been a practitioner of the art for the past 20 years (although she didn't look it!) and had qualified in the year 2000 with the Scottish Yoga Teachers Association, was our guest speaker. She enthralled everyone with her graceful movements and suppleness and was ably assisted by our President Wendy and Secretary Morag who had offered their services and bodies! They were really great sports and despite the odd grimace and yelp they ably demonstrated the various positions - some with greater ease than others! One thing is for sure, everyone now knows our President and Secretary! Well done girls!
Janice then gently guided the audience through a few paces in the limited space allowed. Legs were flying everywhere in the upstairs lounge amongst great hilarity! Janice was a star and many were discussing the possibility of arranging classes with her for next winter.
Hot off the press, appeared our fund raising cookery book and in a flash our intitial batch was sold out with many queuing in the hope of picking up a first edition!
Even the Captain was on hand to autograph copies!
In closing, Janice drew the winning ticket for a beautiful basket of goodies and this was won by Alison Houston of Paisley Golf Club.
The committee would like to thank all who came along and supported Renfrewshire. We are so pleased that you all enjoyed yourselves so much.
Photos to follow soon!
