More than 70 people a week now participate in classes at the centres.

Val Oldfield, who runs classes at Cooinda Neighbourhood Centre, has been teaching yoga since 1977.

“Yoga can improve flexibility, breathing, relaxation, concentration and emotional wellbeing,” Val, who is 76, said.

“It’s popular because it can be enjoyed by all ages and gets results.

Val was awarded an OAM this year for her contribution to yoga and for setting up running a charity to support children.
