Yoga Classes

There are many different styles of yoga, and here at Yotopia we pride ourselves on the variety we offer, so there’s definitely a class, or more, to suit you.  We believe our highly qualified and carefully selected teachers are the best in London. Yoga can be very personal, so we advise that you try a few different classes and teachers to see which connect with you. Our Introductory Offer gives you a cost-effective way of finding what is best for you.

Some generic descriptions are provided below; but check our teacher profiles for a more specific description of their influences – each teacher brings their own style and personality to each class.

FLOW – a moderately paced flowing practice, linking one posture to the next through carefully curated sequencing to encourage a seamless and dance-like thread of movement. Not without challenge, sustaining a flow is a cardio workout, so even in the temperate room you’ll be sure to raise the heat. Flow classes will vary from teacher-to-teacher; see teacher bios to find out more about individual style.  Open to beginners.

HOT FLOW – ‘Flow’ but in the heat. Open to beginners.

FLOW 2 – a more challenging version of ‘Flow’ with extra strength either coming from an increase in pace, longer holds, more intricate sequencing or the addition of advanced postures. Flow classes will vary from teacher-to-teacher; see teacher bios to find out more about individual style.

HOT FLOW 2 – ‘Flow 2’ in the heat.

ROCKET L2 – rooted in the Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga practice, Rocket is as it says on the tin – full of power. Expect a fast-paced, challenging but playful flow incorporating inversions, arm balancing, backbends and standing postures. Rocket L2 is open to all apart from complete beginners.

DHARMA YOGA – a beautiful devotional practise that emphasises good health, a clear mind and a kind heart. The method weaves together many teachings in order to bring all students closer to the goal of Self-realization. This is an advanced class incorporating inversions, backbends and arm balancing postures.

ASHTANGA – challenging in its nature, Ashtanga Yoga is a led dynamic practise comprised of a series of poses done in a set sequence. There are 6 series in total, the first one being the primary series, which is the one this class focuses on.

ASHTANGA HALF AND HALF – A led Ashtanga vinyasa practice combining half primary with half secondary series, bringing a taste of the secondary benefits to those of you stuck on the funkier primary binds. Experience all the groundedness and hamstring stretch of primary, followed by the heart opening, backbending and twisting of secondary. This class is for all levels, as options will be given for the trickier postures, but some experience of dynamic vinyasa is advised.

HOT ASHTANGA – ‘Ashtanga’ in the heat.

MYSORE SELF PRACTICE – the Ashtanga primary series in a non-led environment.  There is no need to be familiar with the series or Ashtanga, the teacher is there to teach you step by step how to self practice Ashtanga yoga. You can arrive anytime during the Mysore window (6.45-9.30am) and decide how long you practice for. Open to beginners.

HANDSTANDS & INVERSIONS  – a playful and fun workshop-style class incorporating clear demos and partner work to help you grasp the correct technique and alignment for poses such as handstands, headstand and forearm stand. You can come on your own and do not need to have an established inversion practise to attend.
