Many of you know already the next Bristo Yoga School MOVIE NIGHT is set for Friday 3rd Febraury 7:30pm-10:pm
This movie night is a pot luck (bring a raw/vegan/veggie dish) and a few spare pounds to buy a freshly squeezed juice from our pop up juice bar Fernando of ‘Tupi’! (see pics below!)
*Please donate what you can although this is FREE event. Suggested donation is between £1-£5. All donations go to The Good Samaritan Suit who support Jerico House upstairs, Started in 1988, formerly St Francis’ Church and friary, it is now a Care Home Service for people who are homeless and have alcohol or mental health issues. It provides 20 single rooms for both men and women.
We’ll be watching Ashtanga, NY – A Yoga Documentary
Featuring: Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, Sharath Rangaswamy, Willem Dafoe and Gwyneth Paltrow
Ashtanga, NY was originally intended as a concert film celebrating the Ashtanga style of yoga, now wildly popular in the United States and around the world. It follows the aging yoga guru Sri K. Pattabhi Jois as he gives his final North American workshop in New York City in September 2001. Devotees were arriving from all over the world to join this rare opportunity to practice with the 86 year-old Jois. The 9/11 terrorist attacks took place in the midst of this celebration, and dramatically changed the meaning and purpose of the yoga gathering. In the difficult weeks that followed, Jois used the Ashtanga practice to help heal and fortify his diverse followers. This is no instructional video, and these are not your garden-variety contortionists. Ashtanga, NY is a real look into the intersection of ancient practice and modern life, New York-style.

Yesterday I mentioned ‘grabbing a juice’ near by the yoga studio between teaching.
Introducing to you: ‘Tupi’! I am so happy to have made this connection!
Fernando, a super happy, musical maestro, juicing and pancake making wizard is the proprietor here, serving FRESH JUICE, pancakes (including vegan and gluten free options) plus much much more.
He’s situated only moments away from the door of Bristo Yoga School at the top of Middle Meadow Walk, Edinburgh.
