Perfect your chaturanga at the capital's most sought-after yoga studios

Once a niche wellness practice associated with free spirits and alternative lifestyles, over the last decade yoga has gone mainstream in a big way. With online sensations like Yoga With Adrienne highlighting the benefits of sun salutations to the masses, few and far between are the London gyms and fitness studios that don’t offer some form of yoga class. Whether your preferred form of yoga is an active vinyasa flow or you simply like to unwind with some gentle yin yoga at the end of a long day, the capital’s top studios have got something for everyone. Here are the best yoga classes in London.

Triyoga, across London

Triyoga was founded in 2000 with the intention of creating high-quality yoga sanctuaries with a focus on wellbeing, and has established itself in Camden, Chelsea, Ealing and Shoreditch. Offering a wide range of classes including 30 different styles of yoga – from flowing and dynamic to restorative and meditative – yogis can also enjoy mat and reformer Pilates, barre, sound healing, gong baths and meditation classes. You can trust you’re learning from the best, as teachers here must have a minimum of five years of experience before joining, ensuring all classes are delivered by trainers of long and continuous yoga lineage.

Since opening, Triyoga has sought to honour both yoga practices as well as evolving into a holistic health hub. Whether in need of rehabilitation treatment or looking for a deep tissue massage to unwind, or even seeking wellbeing advice from a therapist on matters such as female health, triyoga has a team of specialists to help. Average yoga studio, this isn’t.

Built around a philosophy of promoting fitness for the heart, mind, body and soul through proper mindset, nutrition, movement and sleep, yoga is at the heart of Bodyism’s wellness concept, situated on Westbourne Grove in Notting Hill. Available in either group or one-on-one sessions, as well as its challenging take on a classic yoga flow, yoga principles are also evident in the Bodyism Signature class (which also incorporates interval training, yoga, meditation and stretching for the ultimate workout).

For a less traditional yoga workout, book the Yoga Tone class. Described by the studio as ‘energetic and powerful’, the session blends yoga sequences with isometric exercises (small movements designed to target specific muscle groups) to help create a lean physique and improve both mental and physical health. And, for after your workout? There’s a chic changing room stocked with Wildsmith Skincare products and a stylish cafe serving up all the vegan, vegetarian, dairy- and gluten-free treats your heart desires.

KX, Chelsea

kx yoga classes London

Possibly London’s most exclusive gym (members reportedly include Kylie, Gwyneth Platrow and Laura Bailey), KX positions itself not as a gym, but as a private members' club with a wellness focus. The upshot is that, as well as a high-tech gym and regular fitness classes, KX is also home to a seasonal, sustainably-minded restaurant and a full spa with treatments and some of London’s leading nutritional medicine experts, beauty therapists and clinical masseuses.

When it comes to yoga, three class options are available. Opt for vinyasa flow if you’re looking for a familiar class designed to help sculpt and tone the body. Yin yoga, meanwhile, takes things at a slower pace, holding less challenging poses for longer periods of time to improve flexibility and increase circulation to the joints. Finally, KX also offers yoga sleep classes, which combine elements of hatha and nidra yoga to focus on body position, breathing and restorative poses to promote a peaceful night’s rest.
