How We Are
We set out to provide you with your own Pacific ‘island,’ a sanctuary when you need it, a home from home, a safe space that is always there.
On the Pacific Yoga side, we sought out skilled and smiling teachers who would get to know you well and bring some fun to the processes of enhancing your wellbeing. Whatever your level of fitness and health you understand that you need to look after it. We are here to help you.
This is a place to find support and encouragement and not a trace of criticism should you happen to be amongst the 99.9% of humans who are not hyper-mobile contortionists. The communal energy of a well-taught class delivers something special. It is all the better for you if there’s a chance to smile together as well.
The Cafe Matariki is the inseparable other half of us, providing excellent food, prepared by us as much as possible from local (and always high quality) ingredients. Our coffee is up there with the best in Bristol. Our juices and smoothies have a keen following. The menu changes daily to use what is best.
Matariki is the Polynesian Maori name for the Pleiades constellation whose nine brightest stars have been used for centuries as a navigation aid for the intrepid long distance sailors in their great outrigger canoes. Our own navigation aid, it is there for everyone but it dovetails with the yoga because you will make new friends in the studio and this social space is there for you to develop those friendships. We want you to feel this is yours.
