Celebrating wellbeing was the theme of the open day held at Ashley Down Yoga studio, Yogafurie, in June. Hot yoga, bodywork and mindfulness were all part of the mix and enjoyed by the many visitors who came along.

The ‘ Turn Up the Heat on Your Health' event was designed to help people find out more about a variety of holistic health and fitness practices.

Yogafurie first opened its purpose-built hot yoga studio in Ashley Down in January this year after four years of practicing in locations around the Bishopston and Gloucester Road area.

The studio, which is powered by 100% sustainable energy, is the brainchild of Yogafurie owner Ed Wood, who is a former commercial IT worker turned yoga teacher.

Ed said: “We have had an overwhelming level of support from the community since we opened. It has meant a lot to us that so many of our members have not just remained committed but actually are now doing more hot yoga in our new studio.

“We have also been delighted by the fact that we are welcoming new enthusiasts all the time and so we thought it would be nice to give back to the community.”

Visitors experienced some more unusual events on the day such as the Kirtan chanting session held by Tim Chalice, who has a regular Wednesday morning Bhajan Babies sessions for parents, babies and toddlers. He introduced people to the power of repetitive singing and the delightful silence that happens at the end great for calming everyone down and promoting good sleep patterns!
