All the teachers at Yogawest are trained in the Iyengar tradition and are certificated by the IYA (UK). This entitles them to use the Iyengar Certification Mark: an indication of high quality training endorsed by BKS Iyengar in Pune, India.HistoryEstablished in 1990The building that is now Yogawest has been at the heart of Iyengar yoga in Bristol since the early '90s. Originally a British Legion club, the BIYC (the Bristol Iyengar Yoga Centre) was set up by Bob and Kathy Welham. A few years later Gerry Chambers and Lynda Purvis took over and set up Yogawest which they ran for over a decade, developing the building over the years into a 2-studio space, hosting classes and workshops at the highest standard.Diana and Mike Penny started the latest chapter in the story of Yogawest on Friday 2nd September. There were a few days of downtime to re-paint and make some layout changes and the doors opened again on 10th September with a well-attended Open Day complete with Yogawest balloons!We intend to continue to provide the very best Iyengar yoga teaching in Bristol, with classes for all abilities. We have a wonderful team of teachers and a warm welcome waiting for you.Meet the Business Owner: Diana P.Diana trained with Ursula Schoonraad in London and qualified as an Introductory teacher in 2007. She is currently studying towards Junior Intermediate Level 1.After several years in London, Diana and her husband Mike have recently bought Yogawest and are very excited about their new life in Bristol and taking over the reins at this famous yoga centre. As well as teaching some classes, Diana will be front of house at Yogawest and is enjoying meeting all the regulars as well as some new faces in the studios.When not at Yogawest, Diana enjoys camping in Pumpkin the campervan, outdoor swimming and sampling the many delights of Bishopston's restaurants. « less

Bouldering is a branch of rock climbing, performed at low level, usually above crash mats, and without the hindrance of equipment normally associated with climbing. This allows the participant to fully focus on the techniques and movements and makes it easier for those wishing to climb to gain a safe entry into the activity. If you are new to bouldering then the easiest and safest way to enter the activity is through an induction session. Alternatively, you can be brought to the centre by experienced friends, who can look after you until such time as you are competent enough to become a registered member yourself. Kids can get started through Boulder Club, starting with a Taster session (which adults can attend too) and then working up through Levels 1-5 bouldering awards. If you want to climb with your families then the family inductions session is for you. Please see TCA web site for more information and contact details. « less
