    G12 STUDIOS, 37 Ruthven Lane, Off Byres Road, Opposite Hillhead Underground Station, West End Glasgow

    Joyworks will be offering lunchtime workshops in the west end and the city centre in the New Year.

    The benefits are almost immediate, too. In the days following the workshop, I find that I’m laughing more often, but that I’m also calmer in everyday life and better at dealing with small stresses and niggles.
