Chris Jolly, 62, who has taught yoga, tai chi and meditation for almost 20 years is retiring this Easter.
Chris studied for three years with the British Wheel Of Yoga to qualify as a yoga teacher.
He has taught in Ilkeston and around the East Midlands and was also county B.W.Y. representative for Derbyshire for seven years.
Chris said: “I would like to thank all my students for their loyalty over the years and hope that they have gained some benefits from my teachings.”
Although serious about his yoga he has always had a good laugh with his students and wishes them good health and happiness in the years to come.
He is pictured with his class at the Flamsteed Centre in Ilkeston ahead of his retirement.
