We understand that for many people it can be intimidating to start practicing yoga – donâ€™t worry we were nervous before our first class as well! You have nothing to worry about. Yoga is fun, accessible to everybody and a truly enjoyable and rewarding experience.
For guys who worry that yoga is for girls, fear not! Approximately a third of our students are men and you will find plenty of other guys here at the studio and in your classes. We have men from the armed forces, sports people and plenty of runners who attend. There are also lots of guys at the studio looking to regain their health after time away from being active. Some of our most dedicated students are guys who have started their yoga journey with us (sometimes suspiciously…) and found strength, flexibility, focus and a positive challenge at our classes.
