Two yogis are hoping to share their skills and knowledge to help people in the new year.

Barbara Ives, 58, from Tharston, and Jenny Watts, 25, from Wymondham, are hosting a yoga fundraiser for all abilities.

While the sessions are free the pair are asking for a donation to Samaritans after both of their families have been affected by suicide.

Barbara said: 'Our aim is to spread the joy of yoga, the benefits, create a community and bring people together to support one another.

'Jenny and I have found that yoga has helped us through some difficult and traumatic periods and without it I don't know what state my mental health would be in.'
