With 50 members and running since 2013, Westport Men’s Shed is a hive of activity in the local community. Among their plethora of different projects and programmes, shed members take part in weekly yoga and meditation. Westport Men’s Shed chair, Brendan Duffy, says this benefits participants greatly.

“We got the yoga classes going three years ago, they run on a Friday morning and are well attended. The lady doing it has brought everybody on so much in the last three years. On Mondays we start off by doing a meditation class. There are great benefits associated with meditation, physical and psychological.”
