Congratulations to Edgar and Lizzie!

Amazing Exam Success this Autumn

SONY DSCMany congratulations to two Yogawest teachers for truly outstanding exam successes in November 2015.

Both Lizzie and Edgar took Senior exams in November. Lizzie passed her Senior Level One which is an amazing achievement, and Edgar (along with his wife Lydia who many of you know) passed Senior Level Three which puts them on a par with the top level teachers in the country.

Lizzie teaches at Yogawest on Wednesdays and Thursdays, Edgar teaches on Fridays.

SONY DSCOf course we had to celebrate these successes with some cake (thanks to Emma Pugh!) and a big round of applause!




And a class photo with Lizzie seemed entirely appropriate to mark the occasion.

Milochie in the Yogawest Shop

Milochie Logo websiteWe are delighted to announce the arrival of beautiful and eco-friendly Milochie products, arriving into the Yogawest shop on Sunday November 29th.

The Milochie Story

SAMSUNG CSCMilochie’s story began with designer and founder Angela Kohn whose passion for patterns, nature and wellbeing unified to create a platform where these passions evolved into products. It became ever more apparent to Angela that it was a challenge to discover beautiful, fun and stylish yet functional yoga equipment that was eco-conscious and fair-trade. Working closely with yoga teachers and students, the journey to create beautiful yet functional equipment began.

With Milochie you are not simply buying a stylish alternative, but also high quality products that are made of natural materials and created by craftsmen working in a fair-trade environment where both sides share the benefit. Milochie products are created with exciting patterns, botanically inspired, that focus on mirroring the union of yoga with nature and it is therefore our top priority to ensure the wellbeing of our craftsmen and the materials used in our products.

The Milochie Range

SONY DSCCome and see the beautiful Milochie mats, equipment bags, belts, Pune shorts and bolster covers we’ve got in stock.
