LEADERS of a Barrhead-based yoga class are inviting more members to come along now that a new year has arrived.

The group, which meets in the hall at the United Reformed Church, focuses on the importance of relaxation in a world which, to many, seems to be getting increasingly stressful.

Operated by a registered yoga teacher, participants meet every Thursday, except for the first Thursday of each month.

Those who would like to take part are advised to wear comfortable, loose clothing and take their own yoga mat if they have one.

Anyone who has a medical condition is advised to seek medical consent before attending.

Classes run at the United Reformed Church, behind the houses at the corner of Arthurlie Street and Lowndes Street.

The sessions, led by Karen Guthrie, run from 5.30pm until 6.30pm.

It costs £5.50 to attend and participants can pay as they go.

Call Karen on 0784 029 2498 for full details.
