Katharine West teaches yoga classes of an hour and a half that are easily managed by complete beginners and those that have practiced yoga more regularly. So people of all abilities can attend. Theyoga classes start with warm-up exercises and then move into classical yoga postures. This is then followed by breathing techniques, called pranayama techniques and then a final deep relaxation. The effect of my classes are to stretch the body but also to create clarity and calmness of the mind.
In 2010 I opened Bristol YogaSpace to provide a dedicated practice space for health and wellbeing in Bristol city centre. It now hosts daily classes by some of the best trained teachers in Bristol andspecialises in personalised tuition for small group classes.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a beautiful dynamic practice, which is brilliant for beginners with no previous yoga experience.

In 2002 the BCY studio was created by two yogis- Steve and Vacassin, who bought and renovated the property, creating the beautiful studio space we still have today. Come 2008 both original partnershad moved on leaving the way for Laura Gilmore to become director of BCY. Laura has developed the studio into a space where we offer quality yoga in a number of traditions, and created the therapy room space offering treatments from Bristol's most accomplished therapists.
I first found myself on a yoga mat at uni in 2003, and the gentle discipline of my Iyengar teacher got me hooked. As an uncoordinated introvert, I hated PE at school so it was liberating to find a wayof exercising that wasn't competitive, that didn't matter how 'good' I was. During my career in communications and marketing, I constantly turned to yoga, in need of an antidote to long, anxious days hunched at the computer.

Yoga is accessible to everyone and anyone, regardless of physical limitations or other difficulties. Where difficulties do exist, be they physical, mental or emotional; - beginning to practice yogacan help to overcome them. Yoga can keep the body strong and fit for the physical work of life (I myself work as a gardener). I discovered yoga nearly 30 years ago, and fell in love with it.
