    Ashtanga - Primary Led Class - Notting Hill 06:30-08:00Book Now

    We now hold one led class per month, as traditionally taught in Mysore. This led class will take place on the first Friday of each month from 06:30-08:30 in Notting Hill and will replace the usual Mysore self practice on that day. Led classes help us to really grasp the rhythm and flow of Ashtanga yoga, a very precise practice which ultimately becomes a moving meditation. This class is not suitable to those new to Ashtanga.

    Classes simply described as 'yoga' do not fall neatly into any of our other class styles. Often this is because the teacher has studied a variety of styles within the yoga tradition so that his/her classes reflect a more eclectic, personal approach. While generally based around posture practice, these classes often also delve more deeply into the subtle 'inner' practices of yoga, including breath work and meditation, exploring how the range of yoga practices can help quieten the busy mind and encourage greater peace and happiness.Beginners to intermediate level yoga class.

    Scaravelli Inspired Yoga - All LevelsBook Now

    Inspired by Vanda Scaravelli, who practised with Iyengar for many years, these classes are a gentle, yet demanding, form of hatha yoga. Working with the breath, the pull of gravity on the body, and the resulting unravelling and release of the spine, this approach can be very helpful for those working with chronic, but not acute, spinal or postural issues. Classes vary from week to week, and are typically alignment based and subtle, giving us time to examine the postures, and our approach to them, in depth. Great emphasis is placed on recognising that each person is an individual, and adapting the yoga to reflect that. Working this way provides a welcome counterpoint to those working with a more dynamic practice, and is a nourishing and sustaining practice in its own right. Suitable for all levels of experience.

    Gentle Yoga with Yoga NidraBook Now

    A softer and more meditative practice, dedicated to remedial and gentle yoga practice. Suitable for students of any age and experience, who wish to practise gently and relax deeply. Also ideal for beginners and for those recovering from illness or injury.

    Yoga Nidra translates as Yogic Sleep. It is state of physical and mental relaxation, between wakefulness and deep sleep and the objective is to cultivate that state, without falling asleep. It is used as a relaxation practice, also a form of meditation, treatment for stress and anxiety and purification of the negative habits of mind. It is generally practised lying in savasana, but can be done sitting, or semi-reclining. This can help one remain conscious and aware if there is a tendency to fall asleep.

    This form of yoga nidra was devised by Swami Satyananda from an ancient tantric practice and includes eight verbally guided stages. The eight stages are: Internalisation, Sankalpa (intention), Rotation of Consciousness, Breath Awareness, Manifestation of Opposites, Creative Visualization, Sankalpa repeated and Externalisation.

    Yin Yoga All LevelsBook Now

    Yin Yoga is a practice where postures are held for 3 minutes or more. This length of time is used to open into the thicker layers of connective tissues around the joints that a moving, dynamic practice may not as effectively access.

    During this time of stillness, the physical, energetic, emotional and mental states of being are refined and aligned through heightened inner awareness. When this inner awareness is allowed to grow in stillness, knowledge is gained in maintaining a quiet and conscious state at all times; whether the external environment is one of calm or chaos.

    Yin Yoga is a perfect compliment to a dynamic (Yang) style practice and an extremely subtle and profound practice on its own.

    Yin yoga: an opportunity to soften as through holding postures for sustained periods of time, we examine limits and explore potentials. The focus is on feeling as through practice we develop attentiveness and refine awareness. The practice is available to all wishing to slow down and soften.

    Iyengar Yoga, created by B.K.S. Iyengar, is firmly based on the traditional eight limbs of yoga as expounded by Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras, emphasising the development of strength, stamina, flexibility and balance, as well as concentration (dharana) and meditation (dhyana). Iyengar Yoga focuses on the structural alignment of the physical body (often with the use of props such as blocks and straps) through the development of asanas. It aims to unite the body, mind and spirit for health and well being. Iyengar Yoga is considered a powerful tool to relieve the stresses of modern-day life which in turn can help promote total physical and spiritual well being.

    Back to Basics Series: Downward Facing Dog (£25)Book Now

    The aim of this workshop is to bring balance and harmony from the torso down to the legs as they meet at the sitting bones in Downward Facing Dog.
    We will explore the body in this pose and how to accommodate those with injuries or anatomical issues. We will look at alternative options and how our relationship with our nose and breath can change the way one feels at the back of the body. Come with any questions or issues relating to Downward Facing Dog that you wish to explore! Covering feet to toes, toes to feet!
    This workshop will start from feet up, studying shapes and positions and the relation they have to the rest of the body.
    Starting from feet up, we will look at Tadasana and how it can say a lot about our Adho Mukha Shvanasana. We’ll then move onto the tail bone, sacrum, solar plexus all the way up to the eyes and nose! Suitable for all levels.

    Scaravelli Inspired Yoga - All LevelsBook Now

    Inspired by Vanda Scaravelli, who practised with Iyengar for many years, these classes are a gentle, yet demanding, form of hatha yoga. Working with the breath, the pull of gravity on the body, and the resulting unravelling and release of the spine, this approach can be very helpful for those working with chronic, but not acute, spinal or postural issues. Classes vary from week to week, and are typically alignment based and subtle, giving us time to examine the postures, and our approach to them, in depth. Great emphasis is placed on recognising that each person is an individual, and adapting the yoga to reflect that. Working this way provides a welcome counterpoint to those working with a more dynamic practice, and is a nourishing and sustaining practice in its own right. Suitable for all levels of experience.

It is a Yoga method that is based on a strong Vinyasa Practice (connecting Yoga Asanas through fluid transitions, driven by the breath), and it integrates teachings from five other Yogic disciplines: Swadhyaya (Study of the Self/Philosophy), Ahimsa (the Practice of Non-Violence), Bhakti (Devotion), Nada Yoga (Yoga of Sound) and Meditation. The purpose of this methodology is to learn how to improve one’s quality and joy of life, and to bring greater harmony into our relationships.

    • Supports the development of a wide range of movement from birth to standing

    Baby Massage classes with Alice at are small with personal attention to each baby (maximum 15 babies in a class). Alice uses a doll to demonstrate baby massage techniques, which parents and carers then practise on their babies. The class starts with a warm up followed by a full body massage. Lying on their backs the babies have their feet massaged first, then the massage moves up to the legs, belly chest and arms. Babies have plenty of time on their bellies as well as a chance to sit, squat and stand supported. At the end of each session mums, dads or carers have the opportunity to have an informal discussion with tea and biscuits, while the babies either sleep, feed or just chill out. Soft baby gymnastics can also be demonstrated for babies that are on the move.

    Meditation All LevelsBook Now

    The archetypal image of the yogi is often that of a person sitting in deep meditation. One of the oldest and deepest aspects of yoga, meditation can be thought of as a way of gradually refining our mental focus, intended to generate both greater mental calm and greater clarity. It is a time to sit quietly and to move our awareness inwards, away from the bombardment of external stimulation which characterises most of our lives.

    Restorative Yoga with Yoga Nidra All LevelsBook Now

    Restorative poses are practised in a passive state with various props so the body can feel supported, rested and nurtured. Specific poses offered at each class will focus on a different theme, however, all the systems of the body benefit from this deep relaxation. Some of the measurable results of relaxation are the reduction of blood pressure and the improvement of immune function, as well as improvement in digestion, fertility, and the reduction of muscle tension and general fatigue. After preparing the physical body through relaxation, participants are then guided through Yoga Nidra.

    Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation, and can be a deep form of relaxation. Generally practised in Savasana, it can also be done semi-reclining or sitting.

    Yin Yoga All LevelsBook Now

    Yin Yoga is a practice where postures are held for 3 minutes or more. This length of time is used to open into the thicker layers of connective tissues around the joints that a moving, dynamic practice may not as effectively access.

    During this time of stillness, the physical, energetic, emotional and mental states of being are refined and aligned through heightened inner awareness. When this inner awareness is allowed to grow in stillness, knowledge is gained in maintaining a quiet and conscious state at all times; whether the external environment is one of calm or chaos.

    Yin Yoga is a perfect compliment to a dynamic (Yang) style practice and an extremely subtle and profound practice on its own.

    Yin yoga: an opportunity to soften as through holding postures for sustained periods of time, we examine limits and explore potentials. The focus is on feeling as through practice we develop attentiveness and refine awareness. The practice is available to all wishing to slow down and soften.

Also ideal for beginners and for those recovering from illness or injury.Yoga nidra translates as 'yogic sleep'. However, rather than actually sleeping, in yoga nidra you will lie down and be guided by the teacher into a state of profound physical and mental relaxation, somewhere between wakefulness and sleep. As well as allowing our bodies and minds some much needed rest, this also allows the sub-conscious mind to be at its most receptive, so that the practice can help to sow seeds of positive intention as well as help let go of negative habits. Yoga nidra has also been shown to help relieve stress, tension and anxiety, and has become a valuable therapeutic tool in many contexts. Classes described as 'with Yoga Nidra' will generally include at least 20 minutes of yoga nidra practice, usually at the end of the class. No prior experience of yoga nidra is needed in order to attend these classes.

    Yoga for Teens (Community £7)Book Now

    Aside from the physical benefits, yoga teaches teens techniques for coping with the unique issues they're faced with everyday - insecurity about their changing bodies, pressure to fit in, stressful busy schedules, and uncertainty about what they believe in and about what the future holds. Teens are learning to think for themselves, and yoga can help bring a clarity and focus to their thinking. The teenage years are all about change and adjusting to the latest thing. Bodies are changing for sure. Adjusting to new height, new curves, new voice, etc. requires getting to know the body again. Sometimes friends, boy friends/girl friends, interests and activities remain constant sources of support and fun, and sometimes loosing them creates great big holes. Yoga is good for stretching and strengthening the body, yoga practice is a way to unwind from sitting in class all day. Moving mindfully with one's breath, yoga is a way to feel good in the body and get all the bits working together. Breathing practices, guided relaxation and meditation can also help deal with stress, tiredness, restless energy, and bad moods. On the positive side, yoga can also help improve attention and concentration, ability to relax, can build confidence, and improve mood. We’re starting a new yoga class for teens in secondary school (ages 12-18) only. Wednesdays 16:45 – 17:45 at Islington. Classes will run during terms and take off term breaks. Mats and props are provided, just bring you, a friend, and some comfortable clothes. To find out more about the class or for any further information please contact us.

    An Introduction to Mysore Ashtanga Self Practice Course (£40)Book Now

    This new course is designed for anyone curious about Mysore Self Practice Ashtanga classes and wanting to give them a try in a small and supportive group environment.
    The course will teach you the foundations of the Ashtanga practice and enable you to memorise the opening sections of the sequence. The first 4 days of the course will combine verbal explanation, discussion, and alignment technique. You will spend the first half of each session in the upper studio and then move downstairs to the main Mysore room. On Friday you have the option to join the Led Ashtanga class. Mysore programmes can appear intimidating as other people seem to know the sequence and perhaps be doing complex asana. Learning the sequence of postures is actually straightforward, especially if you are willing to repeat sections until you have set it in down in your mind and your body.
    By the end of the course you will have the experience and confidence to continue your practice in our regular Mysore classes.

    Baby MassageBook Now

    For babies from 6 weeks to sitting. These classes have been developed and tailored by Peter Walker, leading author and baby massage specialist, to help you learn how to give your baby the best start in life.

    In some Asian and African cultures babies have been massaged everyday from birth for centuries. Baby massage is recognised in the West today to give babies a great start in life.

    Developmental Baby massage works with the muscles and joints to achieve all the benefits of orthodox massage while helping the baby to fulfil her structural and physiological potential at each stage of development from birth to standing.


    Benefits include:

    • All benefits of communication through touch
    • Supports the development of a wide range of movement from birth to standing
    • Encourages growth and development by stimulating the appetite and aiding digestion
    • Improves and maintains muscle strength and flexibility
    • Can help to relieve minor discomfort like wind, colic, blocked nose
    • Builds foundation for good posture
    • Induces a sense of well being and relaxation for mother and baby
    • Playful and enjoyable time to bond with your baby


    Baby Massage classes with Alice at are small with personal attention to each baby (maximum 15 babies in a class). Alice uses a doll to demonstrate baby massage techniques, which parents and carers then practise on their babies. The class starts with a warm up followed by a full body massage. Lying on their backs the babies have their feet massaged first, then the massage moves up to the legs, belly chest and arms. Babies have plenty of time on their bellies as well as a chance to sit, squat and stand supported. At the end of each session mums, dads or carers have the opportunity to have an informal discussion with tea and biscuits, while the babies either sleep, feed or just chill out. Soft baby gymnastics can also be demonstrated for babies that are on the move.

    Yin Yoga All LevelsBook Now

    Yin Yoga is a practice where postures are held for 3 minutes or more. This length of time is used to open into the thicker layers of connective tissues around the joints that a moving, dynamic practice may not as effectively access.

    During this time of stillness, the physical, energetic, emotional and mental states of being are refined and aligned through heightened inner awareness. When this inner awareness is allowed to grow in stillness, knowledge is gained in maintaining a quiet and conscious state at all times; whether the external environment is one of calm or chaos.

    Yin Yoga is a perfect compliment to a dynamic (Yang) style practice and an extremely subtle and profound practice on its own.

    Yin yoga: an opportunity to soften as through holding postures for sustained periods of time, we examine limits and explore potentials. The focus is on feeling as through practice we develop attentiveness and refine awareness. The practice is available to all wishing to slow down and soften.

    Iyengar Level 1-2Book Now

    Iyengar Yoga, created by B.K.S. Iyengar, is firmly based on the traditional eight limbs of yoga as expounded by Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras, emphasising the development of strength, stamina, flexibility and balance, as well as concentration (dharana) and meditation (dhyana). Iyengar Yoga focuses on the structural alignment of the physical body (often with the use of props such as blocks and straps) through the development of asanas. It aims to unite the body, mind and spirit for health and well being. Iyengar Yoga is considered a powerful tool to relieve the stresses of modern-day life which in turn can help promote total physical and spiritual well being.

    Scaravelli Inspired Yoga - All LevelsBook Now

    Inspired by Vanda Scaravelli, who practised with Iyengar for many years, these classes are a gentle, yet demanding, form of hatha yoga. Working with the breath, the pull of gravity on the body, and the resulting unravelling and release of the spine, this approach can be very helpful for those working with chronic, but not acute, spinal or postural issues. Classes vary from week to week, and are typically alignment based and subtle, giving us time to examine the postures, and our approach to them, in depth. Great emphasis is placed on recognising that each person is an individual, and adapting the yoga to reflect that. Working this way provides a welcome counterpoint to those working with a more dynamic practice, and is a nourishing and sustaining practice in its own right. Suitable for all levels of experience.

    Gentle Yoga with Yoga NidraBook Now

    A softer and more meditative practice, dedicated to remedial and gentle yoga practice. Suitable for students of any age and experience, who wish to practise gently and relax deeply. Also ideal for beginners and for those recovering from illness or injury.

    Yoga Nidra translates as Yogic Sleep. It is state of physical and mental relaxation, between wakefulness and deep sleep and the objective is to cultivate that state, without falling asleep. It is used as a relaxation practice, also a form of meditation, treatment for stress and anxiety and purification of the negative habits of mind. It is generally practised lying in savasana, but can be done sitting, or semi-reclining. This can help one remain conscious and aware if there is a tendency to fall asleep.

    This form of yoga nidra was devised by Swami Satyananda from an ancient tantric practice and includes eight verbally guided stages. The eight stages are: Internalisation, Sankalpa (intention), Rotation of Consciousness, Breath Awareness, Manifestation of Opposites, Creative Visualization, Sankalpa repeated and Externalisation.

    Yin Yoga All LevelsBook Now

    Yin Yoga is a practice where postures are held for 3 minutes or more. This length of time is used to open into the thicker layers of connective tissues around the joints that a moving, dynamic practice may not as effectively access.

    During this time of stillness, the physical, energetic, emotional and mental states of being are refined and aligned through heightened inner awareness. When this inner awareness is allowed to grow in stillness, knowledge is gained in maintaining a quiet and conscious state at all times; whether the external environment is one of calm or chaos.

    Yin Yoga is a perfect compliment to a dynamic (Yang) style practice and an extremely subtle and profound practice on its own.

    Yin yoga: an opportunity to soften as through holding postures for sustained periods of time, we examine limits and explore potentials. The focus is on feeling as through practice we develop attentiveness and refine awareness. The practice is available to all wishing to slow down and soften.

    Yoga Level 1Book Now

    Classes simply described as 'yoga' do not fall neatly into any of our other class styles. Often this is because the teacher has studied a variety of styles within the yoga tradition so that his/her classes reflect a more eclectic, personal approach. While generally based around posture practice, these classes often also delve more deeply into the subtle 'inner' practices of yoga, including breath work and meditation, exploring how the range of yoga practices can help quieten the busy mind and encourage greater peace and happiness.This class is suitable for beginners.
