May News from Yogawest

We love May at Yogawest: the flowers are blooming, and as the evenings lighten and the days grow warmer, students start to linger outside after class drinking lemon balm and Moroccan mint tea straight from the garden.
We've replaced our orange sails outside, just in case you need to take cover from the the sun (or a seasonal shower). And we've added 2 more bike racks outside for our cycling guests.
