Yoga at HoW College in Redditch
A group of young women have taken part in a six week beginners yoga class, which was funded by Redditch Borough council in a bid to get the young people more active as the majority taking part where active for less than 30 minutes a week. The class was run in the college to make it accessible to the young people and free mats were provided as an incentive for completing at least 5 out of six weeks, enabling them to continue at home or in a locally run class.
