An Ayr yoga studio is seeking permission from council bosses to continue operating in the town centre.

My Yoga Place has been running from a premises at 70 Kyle Street, but its owner had not applied for a 'change of use' from its former purpose as a hairdresser. 

Owner Vhairi Slaven says in planning documents that she was "not aware until now" that she needed to apply for permission to South Ayrshire Council.

On its website, My Yoga Place promises "various yoga traditions and focus on connecting mindful, dynamic movement, static postures, and conscious breath to improve mental well-being, self-confidence, strength, flexibility, and range of motion.”

A decision on the change of use will be made in the next few months.
