Yotopia London: Review

Team GLAMOUR.COM put London’s Yotopia to the test.
Tested by: Rebecca Cox, Beauty Editor
Yotopia is set in the heart of Covent Garden, just a two minute walk from both Leicester Square and Covent Garden tube stations. There are two yoga studios, a ‘tepid’ room that offers traditional yoga classes of varying forms and the studio’s signature Myo-Fit Yoga, and a slightly larger ‘hot’ room, which, at 35˚C, raises the body temperature during the class.
Over a month I tried classes in both the hot and ‘tepid’ rooms, ranging from Myo-Fit Yoga to Ashtanga Vinyasa, with different teachers and varying levels of difficulty. At the start of each class, the instructor asked whether anyone in the group was new to yoga and whether there were any specific injuries they should be aware of. We were also told that if, at any point, the class became too challenging we should take a rest. Classes like Beginners Hot Yoga are brilliant for complete newcomers (like myself) who don’t know their downward dog from their warrior – you’re taken through everything at a manageable pace while still being given a workout that you’ll feel the next day.
The classes offered by Yotopia are without doubt, brilliant. I enjoyed every single class I attended – the teachers are friendly and helpful and the yoga challenging but achievable even for beginners. The studio is new, so there are some things that still need fine-tuning: the changing rooms are a little small for the amount of attendees, so be prepared to race for the showers. I’d recommend Tuesday night’s Hot Yogasports as a stand-out class: teacher Katie Courts (pictured) leads you through a routine that works on core strength as well as flexibility and I left every week feeling brilliant. I’ll definitely be going back.
Classes start at £13 each, with an introductory offer of £35 for 10 days. For more information visit http://yotopia.co.uk. 13 Mercer Street, St Martin’s Courtyard, WC2H 9QJ
