Having been practicing yoga for a couple of years now, I still feel like a newbie – with all the types of yoga out there there is no limit to perfecting one’s asanas. Exploring London’s yoga map, I recently stopped by Yoga West in Chiswick for Vinyasa Flow yoga class.
Serving Chiswick, Acton, Ealing and Shepherds Bush in West London, Yoga West offers a variety of yoga & Pilates classes, ranging from gentle to dynamic, taught by London’s best instructors in a friendly environment.
Vinyasa Flow yoga is one of the most popular yoga classes that is very active and fast-paced meaning that not only you work on your body balance and strength and stretch core muscles, but also get a fair dose of active fitness-like exercise.
Attracting dedicated early bird yogis, Yoga West’s Saturday morning Vinyasa Flow yoga class was absolutely packed: on one hand, guaranteeing that the teacher is great and the class is in demand, on the other hand however, = meaning that your ‘private’ space is pretty much limited to the space of your mat and the room getting quite hot from the synchronised breathing of thirty people. 🙂
The class is suited both for those who have only started their journey and for more advanced yogis: the teacher provides a couple of options for the asanas and pays attention to the room coming over to the yogis and recommending necessary adjustments,
Located in a converted art-deco factory, the studio soaks in natural light getting in through 12-foot floor-to-ceiling windows and the class is a perfect way to kick off a weekend in an active healthy way leaving one energised and happy.
Whether you live in the neighbourhood or fancy a trip to West London, you can make your start at Yoga West easy by liking the studio’s Facebook page and receiving a free first class. Check the website for details! Namaste.
