Formerly in Clapham and now in a refurbished Victorian warehouse in West Norwood, The Shala has been running for over 17 years and has a long-standing reputation for its excellent teaching and welcoming vibe. The yoga studio offers daily ashtanga yoga classes (traditional Mysore style, beginners and intermediate) as well as workshops and yoga for pregnancy. Classes are small with an emphasis on spiritual as well as physical wellbeing.

The best yoga studio by far!
I've been a regular student for over a year now and consider the Shala my second home. The teachers are friendly, kind and warm hearted souls, their knowledge of the disciplines on offer is extensive and trustworthy.
The actual studios are just lovely, light wooden floors throughout, under floor heating in the winter, clean functional toilets and showering facilities, an added bonus of female and male changing rooms.
The open reception is geared for after class mingling with the bonus of fresh coffee to purchase, one really couldn't ask for more than that!
I signed up for an unlimited introductory offer that turned out to be limited to one class a day. Classes/ teachers of variable quality but the intro offer is good value to get a sense of whether it's worth paying full price (I say no..)
A gem amidst the soulless commercial yoga studios which are springing up all over the place. It's small, personal, atmospheric, peaceful - and most of all it offers authentic yoga taught to small groups by lovely, experienced teachers.
