Sessions for an Iyengar Yoga class have been held by Barbara Vidion at Kennaway House and Primley Road United Reformed Church hall. Barbara, who has been teaching for 15 years, said: “Yoga is for everyone and if you are not able to come to a regular yoga class because you have limited mobility, you can still practice yoga from a chair,” she said.

“People are always surprised as to how much of a stretch you can get while remaining sitting down. I have heard it described as get fit while you sit.”
