A DROITWICH yoga teacher has been nominated by her students for a What’s On 4 Junior Award.

Janine Rusby from Yoga for Wellbeing, was nominated in the Best Pre/Postnatal Activity category, for her work teaching yoga to people of all ages.

Ms Rusby has been running pregnancy, postnatal and baby yoga classes in Droitwich for more than seven years.

She said: “I was flattered that my students had nominated me for this national award. I was stunned to find I had got through to the next round. Most of the other nominees are national businesses so it rather amazing that an independent teacher from Worcestershire can get through.”

She will now go through to the national voting stage of the competition, and parents have until Thursday, May 15 to vote for her classes at whatson4littleones.co.uk. The winners will be announced at a live award ceremony on Friday, June 20.
