I had a wonderful day this week pre-walking the walk for the yoga day on Saturday 8th June. I walked to Avoncliffe and Freshford and ended up walking for nearly 4 hours, so realised I needed to cut it down a bit for the day! We passed the beautiful Iford Manor and saw canal boats going over the aqueduct at Avoncliffe. At the end, they were doing teas at Westwood Parish Hall and so we had tea and Victoria sponge with cream and strawberries!
There are still spaces if you would like to join me for a revitalising and relaxing day in the countryside. £45 includes lunch and afternoon tea and cake. 9.30-5.30pm.
Westwood Parish Hall
I have added 2 new yoga days to the schedule for 2019 – see the Workshop page for details. One is a lovely new venue in Westwood, Wiltshire.
This photo is a bit dark, but it is a lovely old hall. I hope to see some of you there. xx

Dear all, I am finally getting my head around technology and I have recorded a 10-minute relaxation in class for you to use at home. Please feel free to make any requests for future recordings!
Look on the Pregnancy page for details of birth preparation workshops that I run for couples to prepare for childbirth. We will spend 2-3 hours going over birthing positions, massage and relaxation techniques, breathing, all of which your partner will be able to join in with to support you.

- Yoga practices to assist at each stage of labour and manage pain.
- Birthing positions (using supports, including birthing balls)
- Breathing, visualisation and relaxation techniques to promote gentle birth
- Top tips for birthing partners
- Handouts to take away and practice.
- £75 per couple in your own home. Or £45 per couple in a group.
I am happy to say that I have uploaded a recording of a visualisation recorded in my pregnancy yoga class on 6th August 2018. It is 11 minutes long and can be listened to at anytime during pregnancy (or even not in pregnancy!). It will help you visualise your body opening up gently to allow your baby into the world.
See the pregnancy page on my website http://www.bristolyogabliss.co.uk/pregnancy-yoga for the recording.
So it is great to be back teaching yoga for pregnancy and the next 6 week course will start on Monday 9th July, 5.30-6.45pm. £60. We do pelvic floor exercises, breathing techniques, general exercises that are beneficial in pregnancy and birth preparation.

After a very long break, I am restarting the pregnancy yoga class. It will be on Mondays from 5.30-6.45pm. The next course starts on Monday 14th May and is £60 for 6 weeks. I’m looking forward to doing it again and meeting the next generation of mums-to-be! Sally x
Finally, after about 8 years, I am putting the price of the Monday night class up. I have tried to keep it as low as I can for as long as possible but costs are going up, I’m afraid. It still compares very favourably with yoga classes in town.
The Monday class will now be £7 for an hour. 7-8pm
I’d like to recommend the following website for lovely meditation cloaks and cushions. www.liveup.io
They are designed by Anthony Farrow and his partner Rita. Anthony is the son of one of my longest standing yoga students, Ligia, who comes to the Monday night class.
