Anniversary Class and Party, December 2016
What a Party!
Although Yogawest (aka The Bristol Iyengar Yoga Centre) has been giving yoga classes in this building for over 30 years, we felt that we’d like to celebrate our five years at the helm.
So we offered a class taught by seven of our finest teachers (and were sorry that the full set couldn’t make it). Led by Lizzie Biggin, it was a marvellous 2-hours of fun, frivolity and exciting asanas and sequences. A huge thank you to Lizzie, Jacob, Annemarie, Jess, Claire, Frances, Zoë H and Zoë R: a truly magnificent afternoon.
A special thanks to Anna Argiros for her beautiful ‘cello playing as the class gathered. Anna is off to Sweden for 6 months, we wish her well and look forward to her return in the summer.
Studio 2 was the perfect place for eating, drinking and making merry after the class. Many thanks to our resident DJ Annabel.
We were treated to a demonstration of Sirsasana and variations in a beautifully choreographed session during the party.
Thanks to Ellen who showed the pregnancy variation: working in the corner with 2 walls as security and guidance!
Julian Trust donations
A sincere thank you to all of you that donated to the Julian Trust on the day. We raised a very impressive £285 for this most worthy local homeless charity.
Madeleine and Morgan drew the 2016 Yogacard raffle at the party and allocated prices to over 10 lucky winners. The top prize was a monthly yoga card worth £100, and various other Yogawest prizes, including Yogacards gift vouchers were won.
To thank those that came to the anniversary class, and to make sure that everyone got a prize, we handed out free class passes for January 2017 to all-comers to the class.
Well done to all that won!
