New Yoga Year, Clean Equipment!

Many thanks to the whole Yogawest reception team for the amazing washing and cleaning exercise over the summer. Nicola, Andy, Jon and Meg have been busily deep cleaning the studios and changing rooms, washing the mats and blankets (they take a LOT of re-folding!), cleaning the belts and blocks and generally preparing the building for Autumn classes.

We say goodbye and thank you to Meg who is off to see the world: good luck in your travels!

Yogawest Staff Christmas party

Although there are around 16 of us working and teaching at Yogawest, we don’t get together very often. So we like to bring as many teachers and support staff together in December and usually plan an activity.

2015 party

SONY DSCThis year the brilliant Jennifer Bell came to run a singing workshop for us. After some hilarious warm-up exercises, we had a crack at Jen’s adaptation of Silent Night. You can listen to the final version below, which for a 90 minute session of the hitherto untrained but enthusiastic Yogawest choir, we think is pretty good!
