Happy Yoga Newcastle, set up by Jo Hutton in 2014, opened the doors on a new city centre location on Monday, May 25, and held an event which raised £331.79.
The event included a gong bath, run by Gill Gosling of Gong Yoga, which is a therapeutic meditation practice designed to help people to settle their minds and enter a state of deep calm, along with lunch.
Guests also had the chance to take part in a special yoga workshop run by Ms Hutton.
Founder Ms Hutton said: “I’m delighted that so many people came along to help me celebrate and that we raised money for such a good cause too.
“I love teaching yoga and the new studio will allow me to help more people experience the benefits of the practice. It’s lovely to see it get off to such a great start.”
The studio is at Curtis Mayfield House, Carliol Square, Newcastle,
The classes that will run at the new studio will include, beginner yoga, pre and post-natal yoga and improver yoga.
