New T-shirts have arrived

yogawest_2015newshop_0537_newsletterRESJon and Mike spent many happy hours this week unpacking, labelling and displaying our fantastic new range of T-shirts made especially for us by Sudhir and his team in Pune, India. Each one is hand-painted with a stylish take on the familiar Yogawest logo, then hand-dyed in Batik fashion. We are thrilled with them and are delighted with the comments we’ve had so far.

Thanks to the ladies from the Thursday morning women’s class for modelling them for us.

Free Yoga Class!



On Monday May 11th at 12.15 – 1.45 we will be having a free yoga class with Lizzie. During this time we will be having some photo work done for our web site. This will inevitably cause some disruption to the class. The images will be used by Google so no identifiable faces will be shown – google do this by blurring faces. The end result will be a photo tour of the studio.

Would you like a free class are you happy for us to use the photographs?

Please email the office to let us know you would like to come
