Centre: East London – “Hatha and Ashtanga at Yoga Place, Bethnal Green”

Yoga place London

Yoga Place is one of the main yoga centres in East London and has many classes all based on a mixture of asanas (poses), pranayama (breathing) and dharana (meditation). It mainly specialises in Hatha, Ashtanga and Dynamic yoga so you get a good dose of physcical exercise from this hip and friendly East London yoga studio.

 It is conveniently situated near to Bethnal Green tube station on the central line so easy for those in the city or in central London. Monday – Thursday there are 2 classes starting at 7.45 so even those who work long hours should be able to get to the last class of the day once in a while.

Yoga place is a nice yoga space

The first time I went to Yoga Place I got there a bit early but went on in, grateful for the time to get to know the new surroundings – a vital part of entering a new yoga space for practice. I found a pile of shoes at the door which I decided were suitably “East-London style”. The reception has an area with lots of cushions on the floor and low tables for visitors to sit and wait for class, while flicking through some of the yoga coffee table books or magazines. For me it is important that a yoga centre offers more than just a class but that it makes you feel at ease in the space. At Yoga Place there is a small kitchen area where students can help themselves to tea and it is a reminder of some of the workshops that take place here at the weekend.

Building your confidence

There are two studios of similar size, fully eqiuped and well kept. Small windows between reception and the studios give the place a transparent and open feeling. In my class there was a mixture of people but clearly the ‘open’ classes assume a basic understanding of yoga and a level of comfort in following instructions without too much correction. I would recommend going to a beginners class if you are a beginner or don’t feel particularly confident. It was nice to see a good mix of men and women in the class and throughout the centre.

Yoga Place in Bethnal Green is a great place to practice if you live nearby and a very easy and convenient place to get to if you don’t. I’m looking forward to spending some time there over a weekend and trying out some of the other classes.

As well as the yoga classes (and cushions to drink tea and read books)

Yoga & Meditation workshops

Saturdays  5th Feb / 2nd April / 7th May / 3pm to 5pm / £20 for your first session, by donation for all subsequent sessions.

Experience: Open to all, no previous experience necessary.

How can I slow down? How can I bring more stability into my life? How can I be less affected by life’s constant demands? How can I simply enjoy the lightness of being?

Mysore practice

If you can remember the Ashtanga Vinyasa sequence, or if you’re happy just to free-style, then go along to the Mysore sessions in the morning. From 6am – 9am you can drop in to practice in a group with the help of a yoga teacher but you can take it at your own pace.

If you want to find out more before dropping in, you can take part in a Mysore workshop which take place on  Sundays 6th Feb / 6th March / 10th April / 11am to 1pm / £30 (£25 concessions)

Therapy Rooms

You are doing something amazing for yourself by practising yoga but sometimes you need a little extra to help you get through periods of mental and physical un-wellness and stress. The therapy rooms offer Ayurvedic Treatments / Acupuncture & Physiotherapy / Cosmetic Acupuncture / Homeopathy / Thai Yoga Massage / Reiki / Massage. They are all independent practitioners and are available through Yoga Place at different times so contact them directly to find out about pricing and more about the benefits: http://www.yogaplace.co.uk/index.php?id=7

Our building is on the corner of Pundersons Gardens and the entrance is the bright orange door on Bethnal Green Road.

We are 1 minute walk from Bethnal Green tube station (central line), which is one stop from Liverpool Street station. Busses 8, 106, 254, 309, D3 and D6. Some metered and pay & display parking in adjacent streets. This is generally free before 8am and after 5.30pm mon-sat, and free all day Sunday (to be sure please check the bay you are in). There are railings outside the centre which you can chain bicycles to – make sure it is a good lock!

Centre: East London – “Yoganesh, Old Ford Road, Victoria Park”

The unprepossessing Old Ford Road premises seem an unusual choice for a brand new yoga centre, but my first visit proved that it wasn’t an unsound one. In spite of the occasional roar of the traffic outside, Yoganesh proved a warm and welcoming place to be on one of the wettest days of the year. There’s no reception area, but I was welcomed in by class teacher, Rita, who asked me to remove my shoes before walking across the yoga space to the changing area; it’s small, so it’s advisable to arrive early enough to change quickly and grab a mat.

Regular Yogis

The weather was undoubtedly a factor in the dearth of yogis today, but my fellow practitioner was clearly a regular as Rita welcomed her back and, impressively, remembered which poses she was able to achieve and which she found more difficult. The class was ‘restorative’ – just what was needed after a bout of bronchitis – involving a slow and relaxing combination of poses, some of which were simply lying under a cosy blanket with a lavender-scented eye bag, concentrating on breathing and meditating. Other poses were more challenging and I needed Rita’s help to achieve an (almost) Urdhva Dhanurasana (full bow). The session was perfect for a slightly fragile foray back into the practice after a period of ill health.

Lovely Rita…

The space is small but offers a more intimate way of teaching the practice, and one that I will definitely be revisiting. As a new venture it’s hard to gauge what niche Yoganesh will fit into, but so far it’s ticking ‘small, friendly and local’ perfectly. As for teaching, Rita scores highly, managing to combine a friendly and encouraging welcome, with clear instruction and help when needed. Her background is Ashtanga and she primarily teaches Vinyasa Flow as well as Pregnancy Yoga though she freely admits that she incorporates a variety of inluences into her teaching. Oh, and Rita’s Tuesday class is ‘Donation’ (though £5 is the recommended minimum) so it’s a great way of checking out the class without a huge outlay.

Workshopping

Even though it hasn’t been open long, Yoganesh is hosting Lara Baumann who will be teaching three new dosha-regulating Advanced Quantum Yoga sequences at the end of February (see the website for details), and further details of future workshops and retreats are promised.
