Bolton residents can start their week positively with a morning yoga class.

Diane Berg Yoga & Tai Chi will be holding the class at 10am today (Tuesday) at Hawkshaw Methodist Church.

The class, which is held regularlyl, is open to all ages and abilities.

Other Tai Chi, Zumba and yoga classes are held throughout the week at the church.

The cost for each of Diane’s classes is £6.50.

According to the NHS, yoga focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing. 

There is apparently evidence that regular yoga practice helps people with high blood pressure, heart disease, aches and pains (including lower back pain), depression and stress.
