“I started yoga for old student classes in answer to that common complaint, lower back pain,” says Adrian Edwards, a regular student in our classes for people over sixty. “Forward bend stretches and dog pose soon cured me of the pain.”

That didn’t stop him attending, needless to say.

“All instructors constantly challenge us to go that extra mile. They will be there with something new to teach us in each lesson, even in those regular poses with which we might feel so familiar,” Adrian explains. “There’s never a hint of the routine. There’s no better feeling than the one of elation on leaving the class, the head clear, save for wondering what we are going to have for lunch!”
