Centre: West London – “Iyengar Yoga Institute in Maida Vale”

Iyengar Yoga London

Iyengar yoga is a form of Hatha yoga that uses belts and blocks to achieve perfect alignment and posture. It is a busy centre with over 50 classes a week for beginners and advanced students. It was opened in 1984 by the founder of Iyengar yoga himself, B.K.S Iyengar.

The centre started in an old artists studio as there was no central place for early London Iyengar teachers to practice, and was funded by the teachers and Mr Iyengar. For ten years, Mr Iyengar stayed at the artists studio on visits to London and it became known as his ‘home away from home’. in 1994 the present building was opened by Mr Iyengar and it is now an award winning studio.

If you’re new to Iyengar or yoga, they have free taster classes and beginners courses.

Centre: Central London – “Triyoga Centres in Covent Garden, Soho and Primrose Hill”

 

Triyoga

 

This is one of the most established and still one of the most exciting yoga centres in London. It has three locations – Primrose Hill, Covent Garden and Soho. All very convenient. It was started by a man called Jonathan Sattin in 2000 who gave up umpteen coffees and cigarettes a day in the pursuit of a more balanced lifestyle. He has a great yoga story to tell

Practising yoga (on the mat) and in a broader way, increased my awareness + instincts across my life; from the way it improved my football (without losing any of my highly competitive streak) to the way I now practiced law with a difference – trusting my instinct as much as knowledge + experience. Read more

Triyoga combines Yoga, Pilates and Treatments to give everyone access to a healthier lifestyle choice. But they are not preachy about it, it’s more about exploring yourself and having fun. They have excellent workshops (e.g. “Where yoga meets Neuroscience” or “Reviving the Spine”) and teachers. If you haven’t tried it yet, get yourself down there in your lunchbreak or after work.

A word of warning, evening and weekend classes can get busy and a packed studio can be intimidating if you are new and find it hard to follow the instructions. So make sure you choose a class that is right for you. If in any doubt, call them or contact us for advice.

Great yoga teachers

Triyoga must have the largest list of yoga teachers connected to their centres, including some of Yogi London’s favourite teachers – Graham Burns (also teaches at the Life Centre), Lisa Sanfilippo, Mark Hill (also teaches Ashtanga at Special Yoga, Kensal Rise), Mimi Kuo Deemer (also teaches at Special Yoga, Kensal Rise),

Events: Seminar – “Meditation talks at the London Meditation Centre, Notting Hill in West London”

Why learn to meditate? 
Everyone has a different reason – less anxiety, greater creativity, improved health and more rewarding relationships are some good motivations.  Most of all, people learn because they sense that something needs to change in their lives, and they know change begins with more clarity and a shift in awareness.
London Meditation Centre
 
Vedic Meditation is a simple and pleasurable process to initiate transformation in your mind, your body and the way you connect and interact with the people around you. 
 
The London Meditation are holding a series of introductory talks throughout March that are open to the public. Go along to find out more:
  • Tuesday March 8th, 7:00pm
  • Tuesday March 15th, 7:00pm
  • Tuesday March 29th, 7:00pm
These one-hour talks are without charge and are often fully booked.  To reserve a place, send an email and they will send you complete address details with your confirmation.
 
Vedic Meditation Courses at the London Meditation Centre
  
Step 1. Attend an Introductory Talk
The first step in learning to meditate is to come along to the free Introductory Talk where you learn how the technique works, the benefits experienced and how it is taught. The talk lasts about an hour.
Click here to register: Intro Talk sign-up
 
Step 2. Join a Meditation Course
After attending the Introductory Talk, you are invited to learn to meditate. The course is structured as four sessions over four consecutive days, Friday through Monday.  Each session lasts about two hours and is planned to fit around work schedules.
 
Why Vedic Meditation?
Practising Vedic Meditation brings a wide range of practical benefits including improved health, reduced anxiety, a clearer & more creative mind, better sleep and more rewarding relationships.
Vedic Meditation allows the activity of thinking to become increasingly quiet. This process continues until the mind transcends thought and experiences its most settled state while alertness is fully maintained. As a result the body gains a state of very deep rest.
