Reduced summer timetable

We are pleased to announce that Yogawest is open every day during the school summer holidays. Some teachers are taking a well earned break, so Jon has been hard at work organising the reduced timetable. This is now published and runs from Saturday July 23rd until Thursday September 1st… READ MORE 

Fancy a quieter class?

Some of our classes are very popular, and can get quite busy. Which makes for a great atmosphere in class. However, there are some classes on the timetable that are smaller which may suit you better if you’d like more personal attention. Find the updated list on our website… READ MORE 

Sutra/philosophy course Aug 25–29

Module 1: Fundamentals of Yoga and Yogic Psychology
This first module examines the model of the mind that Patañjali provides in the first chapter of the Yoga SÅ«tras. Exploring the concept of Yoga as both the essential means and ultimate destination of the inner journey, we will also discuss the Vedic theory of the three essential modes of nature (tamas, rajas, and sattva), as well as the fundamental tenets of Yogic psychology… READ MORE

Eye bags and covers

The first in our new series of 'What Are Those For?', focusing on safe and cooperative studio etiquette. If there's a prop you'd like to find out more about, ask us, and suggestions for future etiquette stories are welcome!

Addio Renato

We are sad to have to say arrivederci to the lovely Renato who has attended classes at Yogawest over the last couple of years while he has been living in Bristol. Sadly for us, Renato is on his way back to Rome. We can't tell you how much we will miss your wonderful laugh and amazing smile Renato – please come back and visit us before too long.

Thank you to Eula

Eula is retiring from her regular receptionist duties at Yogawest. We can't thank Eula enough for her warm and generous approach to the job. Always smiling, her nursing background is very much in evidence as she welcomes students and teachers, prepares the studios with care and keeps things in order back of house. Most of all, we will miss her creative and beautiful flower arrangements. See you in class Eula!
