A dance school will launch a new class aimed at children this month.

Tina Counsell, the principal at Weston-super-Mare Dance Centre, in Baker Street, is opening new yoga classes to young boys and girls.

The classes will be aimed at youngsters who are five years old and above in the hope of improving their flexibility, balance and co-ordination.

Tina said children could ‘benefit greatly’ from taking classes.

She added: “Yoga is not competitive and the classes will help children to remain physically active and healthy.

“Children sometimes find it hard to focus on anything for a length of time and yoga practice can help with that, teaching them to be able to concentrate their focus.

“Research has proved this focus does help children to improve their school studies.”
