Among the classes were partner yoga, power yoga, arm balancing, acro yoga, restorative yoga and hatha flow (featured in the pictures).

The event was organised by local yoga teacher Jess Roberts who said: “I am so full of gratitude after a weekend of learning, sharing, teaching and raising money for an incredible cause.

“Together we managed to raise an amazing £2,100 for Oli’s therapy fund.

“I have left feeling completely inspired by a community that I’m so grateful and proud to be a part of.
