An Eccles wellbeing centre is offering free meditation and healing classes over Christmas.
Transcend Studios is run by Paulo Still who was motivated to open the holistic centre after suffering with his own mental health.
Due to recent Covid restrictions and social distancing guidelines Transcend Studios, which was established in Monton in 2017, has moved to Eccles.
The studio offers an array of workshops and classes such as yoga, belly dancing, tai chi, trapeze yoga, and reiki healing sessions.
Still said: “I thought it was important that people knew that they could take care of their own mental health and not just turn to medication.
“In some cultures, like England, people think ‘Take a pill and you’ll be fine’ and that’s not always the case.”
A free men’s yoga session called ‘Men zen’ runs on the 23rd of each month. This is to help encourage men to get into yoga and break any misconceptions about yoga and masculinity.
Transcend Studios also has a coffee and juice bar called ‘Soul shake’ and a gift shop called ‘Crystal vibes’ which are both on-site open from 10 am till 2 pm daily.

The studio is also one of the few wellbeing centres that offers Reiki healing sessions in Salford.
Transcend Studios has a Community Interest Company (CIC) element used to give something back to the community.
