People of Great Yarmouth and Gorleston are invited to join in with yoga and relaxation classes which are available again now that the town is in step three of the roadmap out of lockdown.

Samballa Yoga will be holding yoga and relaxation classes at Top Body gym in Gorleston every Wednesday at 10am, and another one at 11.15am (which is currently fully-booked).

Samballa manager, Nathan Gray said: "It's very exciting to be able to introduce people to yoga again. Yoga is very beneficial to the mind as well as the body, and after such a long period away, it is very much needed.

"Yoga is more than just stretching, although regular attendance will improve your flexibility.

"In our classes you will get the benefits of years of research into how the body works and how it can be improved upon, for more agility, strength and co-ordination, less stress and anxiety, improved moods, wellbeing and focus, for a more fully functional body and a calmer, more adaptable mind."

There are also beginners classes available every Thursday, from May 20, for four weeks from 6pm at Top Body Gym, Gorleston.
