Wannabe yogis should hop to this yoga studio just off Hornsey High Street, for a welcoming and open introduction to the practice. One Yoga London runs brilliant Yoga Basics classes that are chatty and laid back. You can challenge yourself, take it easy or fall on your face without worrying about what your fellow students will think. For those wanting a more challenging yet still accessible class, the studio runs a number of dynamic Yoga Flow sessions. For an antidote to the 9-5 try 90 minutes of restorative Honey Flow or a dreamy Sunday evening of deep stretching at Yin Yoga and Mindfulness, and if you want to work really hard, try a Pilates Sculpt class with Belle. It’s a mix of yoga and pilates that will have your heart pumping and your arms wobbling in minutes.
Classes vary depending on the teacher but there’s a focus on strength and physical fitness as well as mental wellbeing; most classes close with a thoughtful moment of reflection. All classes take place in bright, clean first floor studio, where mats, blankets and props are all provided.
