Aldersbrook Medical Centre will host the 45-minute sessions live online, every Wednesday at 1pm, and will also be available for another 24 hours to download.

Practice partner Dr Gopal Mehta said: “With all the pressures people are going through, we hope these sessions can really help.

“We hope this gives people a chance to try something different, that they can do at home, to really boost their physical wellbeing and mental health.

“We’ll be getting on the yoga mat ourselves and encouraging everyone – patients, local residents, everyone anywhere to join in online - it’s open to all.”
