Yogarise | Independent Yoga Studios in South London 

Finding a peaceful yoga studio in the middle of London might seem a bit of a stretch.

 But that’s precisely the vibe at Yogarise, whose flagship Peckham studio has been going for almost a decade with inclusive community classes, workshops, CPDs, and Teacher Training courses on offer. 

The space is a light, airy, open studio with bare brick walls, warehouse-sized windows, and wooden floors with a few splashes of colour thrown in here and there. It’s perfectly tranquil, but they’ve allowed a little of the bustle of city life into it by doing away with a lot of the traditional formality, and explicitly making sure it’s not a “silent studio”. Though they ARE thankfully adhering to the tradition of having showers & changing rooms too.


 If warehouses aren’t your thing, then head over to their Streatham studio tucked away just off the main High Road. This is the newest addition to the Yogarise family and includes a selection of warm classes (taught at 30 degrees) in addition to their usual offering. And if you prefer, you can even practise yoga and pilates at home, with live-streamed and pre-recorded classes that come as standard with their Unlimited Online or Studio packages. 

 The classes are genuinely quite astounding in their variety – there’s everything from Ashtanga, Yogasana and Yin yoga to Pregnancy, Postnatal, and Mandala Vinyasa. There’s even Rocket Yoga (which is apparently a sweat-heavy class with “some experience required” to join). Then there’s all the non-yoga stuff, which includes the likes of Dynamic Pilates, Reiki and Gong Meditations. Oh, and one little touch you might appreciate: they have consent cards you can place on your mat telling the teacher what level of contact you’re comfortable with.


 In the summer they open up the rooftop for open air classes, and throughout the year they run multiple yoga & pilates retreats. Think down-to-earth, fun and high-quality teaching from the best in the biz, at unique venues with you in mind.

Basically, they’ll bend over backwards for you.
