At Embody we believe yoga is for everyone. The majority of our yoga classes are open to all levels, though if you’ve never tried yoga before we suggest starting with one of our Gentle Yoga classes. We also offer one-on-one sessions at Embody, giving new students the opportunity for a more personalised introduction and more advanced students a chance for specialised tuition. Frequent weekend workshops and special events complement our studio activities ensuring there’s always something to look forward to.
Yoga is an ancient and powerful practice with many time-tested health benefits. Practitioners enjoy increased energy and flexibility, improved muscle tone and strength, and reduced levels of stress and tension. Mental and spiritual elements of self are enhanced as well, making yoga one of the most effective and rewarding paths to a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Still a little nervous or curious? See this blog post for newbies to yoga with useful tips and what to expect.
Yoga classes at Embody are held in our beautiful light-filled Vauxhall studio, conveniently located on the Victoria Line between Pimlico and Stockwell, and a short walk from Nine Elms, Kennington and Westminster.
