Many of our classes are "mixed-ability", so beginners are just as welcome as our more experienced students. You'll find a friendly teacher who'll check in with you before class, make sure you're happy, and keep an eye on you as class progresses.
Yoga was originally practiced naked, and we're the first studio in London to formally offer naturist classes as a way of getting back to the roots of yoga. Practicing naked allows you to really connect with your body, and also allows you to free your mind.
Restorative yoga is a practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. If you take a restorative class, you may hardly move at all, doing just a few postures in the course of the class.
"Hatha" means 'effort' and applies in the first case to the physical part of making shapes with your body. It can also mean the 'effort' to concentrate and focus your mind. In a Hatha Yoga class you'll find static postures and breathing exercises. It's generally a more gentle style of yoga.
If you're looking for a more personal experience, Matthew offers one to one sessions at BSY. You'll receive a session tailored specifically to you, which can be a great way to discover yoga, but can also be a great way to refocus your existing practice.
"Vinyasa" means 'flow', and so Vinyasa Yoga classes contain extended moving sequences where each pose flows into the next, in time with your breathing. Vinyasa classes tend to be more of a physical workout than Hatha classes.
