Why do Yoga?

To name a few of the long list of benefits:

  • Yoga increases muscle strength and tone whilst also improving respiration, energy levels and vitality.
  • Yoga has nothing to do with any religion. All you need is an attitude to learn something new.
  • Yoga is about understanding and accepting your body, and not just learning different postures.
  • Yoga can help to increase attention and concentration.
  • Yoga is proven to help reduces stress, anxiety, and even depression.

You probably have some questions…

Let us help you get started…

What should I expect from my first class?

Please don’t panic when you walk into your first class – everyone is there for the same reason; to practice Yoga & do something amazing for their mind, body & spirit. Introduce yourself to the teacher if you are new to Yoga and let them know if you have any worries or injuries they need to know about. Find yourself a mat, get comfortable and relax! Every single person in that room has been there.

How much does it cost?

At MoreYoga we are dedicated to bringing high quality teaching at rates people can afford. If you just want to try a single session, you can buy for just £9.90 but the best way to try us out and get a feel for what different classes and teachers can offer you is to buy our introductory offer and get £15 for 20 days. If you’re keen to build a yoga habit, we’d recommend the £15 for 30 days which unlocks an ongoing £39 membership option with a one moth minimum commitment after trial. And we have usage based pricing and Pay-As-You-Go options too – it all depends on how often you’re planning to get into the studio!

What should I wear?

Wear whatever you are comfortable moving in. You don’t need any special brand of clothing or any equipment. Just come as yourself! Shoes aren’t necessary for yoga and you will need to take them off when you arrive. Most people prefer to be barefoot on their mat but if you prefer to wear grippy socks you can bring those along. We have changing rooms & cubby holes for you to leave your belongings in and you won’t need a padlock. Don’t worry the studio is locked during class. 

What is MoreFoundations?

We realise a lot of our lovely customers are new to yoga and some would prefer to learn the building blocks at the same time as practicing. 

A small amount of philosophy about the history of yoga and what yoga actually is will be woven into the hour. As will a more workshop style of slower teaching alongside some movement based flow to always keep you warm. Expect a strong focus and clear explanation of these three foundational aspects of yoga, Ujjayi Breath = Conscious Breathing, Bandhas = Energy Locks in the body and Vinyasa Flow = Movement and Alignment while breathing.

More Foundations is more than just a beginners yoga class. This specifically designed session has also been geared towards those wanting to return after pregnancy, going back to basics after time out or simply slow down the pace of a session while also still applying and incorporating some of the key foundations of a regular Vinyasa Flow class. 

Perfect for beginners, however available for everyone and especially those hungry to know more!!!

MoreYoga has transformed my mind and my body - I no longer have sciatica (which I had every day for 4 years) and I can now get up at 6am and go and do exercise before work and i really notice improvements every single day in my strength and flexibility and every week I notice gradually that exercises I just could not do at all 6 months ago, I now do with pleasure! I cannot recommend MoreYoga highly enough - thank you!

EMMA DICK

I’ve been to quite a lot of MoreYoga classes and venues and I keep coming back as they are the best in town. All teachers are absolutely brilliant and everything else in each studio is so thoughtful and collated with so much love and consideration. I’d highly recommend any MoreYoga class and venue. Keep up the good work!

EMMA LOUISE SOUTHALL

I really like the warmth and the integrity the teachers bring to each class. Tower Bridge is an amazing and cosy studio. But there are plenty of other choices of studios/locations anywhere in London and that’s what so great about More Yoga. Would recommend to all my friends and beyond!

FLORINA MELANIE BOZIAN

Fantastic spaces, inspiring teachers and totally reasonable prices given how expensive yoga in London can be! It's a no brainer!!

JESSICA TAN

I love my local more yoga. Good range of classes at useful times of day, good to stretch out and fill the dark hours of winter.

BETHAN JAMES

I was never a 'yoga person' before I found MoreYoga, more or less gave up getting good at it, let alone enjoying it. But these classes are fun, flexible membership options make it affordable and the range of classes (from the relaxing to the challenging) is ideal for someone wanting to test the water.

I really enjoy the classes at my local studio (Finsbury Park) and have gone from zero interest to attending classes up to 3 times a week. There's a class here for everyone - highly recommend!

ABI SILVESTER

I love MoreYoga - it allows anyone to try yoga with fair prices and a wide range of locations! It’s perfect for anyone who is on a “fast” type of routine and needs to stop for one second and focus on themselves.

DARIA BUONINCONTI

I've been with MoreYoga for almost a year now and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to start exploring yoga in all its variety. I love the flexibility (studios are available all over London), the timing is great no matter if you work full time or not, I find it easy to get into the classes I want. It is great value for money too. I am very happy that my yoga journey started with MoreYoga.
