Absolute Beginner?
Beginners very welcome!

As a Yoga beginner we suggest you start with the Beginners course or Level 1/Gentle Beginners class.  The Beginners course will allow you to learn the correct poses in a smaller class with fellow new starters guided by an experienced teacher. The Level 1 or Gentle Beginners class is perfect for both complete beginners and those that prefer to take their yoga practice at a slightly slower pace.

Once you feel more confident in your practice feel free to try any of the classes we offer.

Our Yin Yoga is a deep stretch class, suitable for people with no prior yoga practice.

We also have Meditation classes for you to enjoy – Yoga Nidra. Just let the teacher know that you are new to practice. If you are new to Pilates, you are welcome to attend any of the classes. Pilates is a very precise movement. It can take a bit of time to get the hang of it!  Please be sure to check in at Reception to say hello before your first class and have a chat at any time.

Are the studios heated?
Full details of Class Types can be viewed on the website. Our studios are very gently heated to between 21-22°Celcius. Pleasantly warm but not too hot! The heat allows you to go deeper in your practice, allowing your stretches to open the body with less chance of injury.
What if I am not flexible?
That is a very good reason to do yoga! Practicing yoga is a great way to increase your flexibility. Amongst other benefits Yoga can improve your strength, balance, breath capacity, stress management, sleep and weight loss.
What is the difference between Yoga and Pilates?
The age old question!  Pilates is actually derived from yoga. The primary focus of Pilates is the core muscles (abs, lower back and stabilizers). The core strength that can be developed in Pilates is useful in many activities. Yoga is a complete system of wellbeing with physical, mental and spiritual benefits. Physically Yoga strengthens and tones the entire body, improves flexibility and balance.
Do you offer private sessions?
Yes, please contact us at team@yogaworkslondon.co.uk and we will be happy to organise private sessions with our teachers. If you are interested in sports yoga, speak to one of the team beforehand about a range of motion assessment. This will help you identify area of weakness or shortness in your body that we need to target in practice.
