SOUTH MIDLOTHIAN farmer Colin Graham has found a new way to schedule some 'mindful' time into his daily routine – by practising yoga in his cattle shed.

The beef cattle and sheep farmer told The SF that he had a bit of lower back trouble a year ago and his physiotherapist had recommended core strength work as part of his recovery and he has since been going to classes at local yoga studio, 'Mind Body' Midlothian.

"My girlfriend loves yoga and suggested I go to a class. It is fantastic after a day on the tractor or working with the sheep to have a good stretch!"

We're not sure if the cattle are on board yet but they certainly made for a captive audience for the duration.
