YOGA teacher Lara Bricknell is encouraging more people in Abbeydale to get fit and flexible.
Lara teaches the Hatha yoga in Abbeydale Sports and Community Centre on Fridays at 10.15am.
She said: "Yoga improves flexibility and sleep.
"I had someone come to one of my classes who started in February and she said she feels a lot stronger and more flexible.
"I recently had a health check which showed my lung capacity was better than it should be for my age, it was 106 per cent, which is good."
She also runs evening classes in Tuffley and elsewhere around Gloucester.
