Bristol Yoga Trail 2018

We had a great day last Saturday (13th October) with our Open Day, as part of the Bristol Yoga Trail, giving free classes (and cakes!) all day and collecting money for Off The Record.

the cakes (and teachers!) arrive

Very many thanks to the teachers and admin staff that gave up their time to teach, help and make cakes on the day – your efforts were very much appreciate

A huge thank you to those that came on the day and donated to OTR. The total donations to ITR is an amazing £943.59 between the 5 participating studios.

Bristol247 wrote a lovely article about the trail: read it here

and we had BBC Bristol come to the trail in the morning to see what was happening: listen to the interviews, first here:

and second here:

Here are a couple of highlights of the day:

Tattva Incense

We are trying something new in the shop.

Tattva Incense is hand-made in the town of Rishikesh, on the banks of the Ganges river in the Indian Himalaya.

The non-toxic, natural herbs and oils are chosen and formulated into sophisticated blends of paste by Tattva Incense founder and owner Prem Narayan. It’s then hand-rolled onto wooden sticks, air-dried and packaged.

Free Classes, Tea & Cakes and Meet the Teachers

As part of the Bristol Yoga Trail 2018, Yogawest are opening our doors and offering free classes all day long. We invite you to come along, take a tour of our beautiful building, chat to some teachers and try a taster class or two.

Come at least 10 minutes before the start time so you can register with us and secure your place. Some classes may be busy, and some may fill up before the start time, so do arrive in good time!

Donations to OTR

Although all Open Day classes are free, we are collecting donations for OTR – Off The Record, a marvellous Bristol Charity offering mental health support to young people.
