Yogawest Newsletter 03/2017

March News

It was quite a surprise to meet this lovely creature on his way to Yogawest on a busy Monday.
One of the delights of being set back off the Gloucester Road is the sound and sight of nature all around us. We have some lovely wildlife in the Yogawest garden, in particular some beautiful birds come to visit in the early morning.
With the advent of longer brighter days, the cushions are out again, so you can enjoy a herbal tea and a chat in the garden after class.
