A STRESS busting alternative health centre is on its way to Berkhamsted.

The High Street centre above Costa Coffee will be managed by the town’s yoga expert Cathy Howath, who now gives classes in the town hall and nearby Quaker Meeting House.

As well as a large yoga studio, there will be a smaller one for pilates and two rooms for acupuncture and massage treatment at the new centre called Bayyoga .

There is an open day for people who want to look around on Saturday, September 10, from 10am to 4pm.

Co-manager Sian Lambert, an acupuncture therapist, said: “The place has a great feel to it, with a lot of natural light coming in. It is in a perfect setting.

“It is a very welcoming environment and we hope to increase people’s awareness of their health.”

The pair want to help people maintain a good balance in their lives between work and pleasure time - which is “difficult these days,” says Sian.

They say acupuncture and yoga are great ways to wind-down and forget all of your stresses and strains.

Sian said: “Cathy has been a yoga teacher in Berkhamsted for years, but has never had her own studio.

“The classes are already very well subscribed and I am getting a lot of interest in acupuncture and massage already.”

The pair are also hoping to recruit a hypnotherapist and cognitive behavioural therapist in the future to help people who have been through trauma or depression.
