Whether you’re stuck inside, working from home or just back after a long shift doing something vitally important to keep our city going, yoga could be the answer. The focus on breathing, the concentration required to find balance in certain poses, the flow of the movements – it’s all an active meditation that can help clear the mind, quieten anxieties and strengthen your body. And luckily, it seems you can’t keep a good class down: these quick-thinking London yoga studios are now providing online classes you can stream straight to your living room. Here’s how to go with the flow on your front room floor.

One Yoga London

Missing your regular class? The timetable at One Yoga London is going virtual for the foreseeable, with yoga flow and pilates sculpt classes being beamed from the studio straight into your living room. Livestream those calming vibes, complete with a soothing soundtrack and end of class guided shavasana to quarantine any anxious thoughts. Book online and you get a code to view the live class.  

Another_Space

This swanky studio with locations in Covent Garden and Bank is posting the schedule to its virtual workouts on social media channels. You then have to sign up to its streaming service, Digme on Demand, to gain access. Some classes are free with an account, while others will require membership from £9.99 per month. Once you’re set up, move all lamps away from the vicinity and get ready for that reverse warrior pose.

Paper Dress Yoga 

This retro set up on Hackney’s Mare Street shares its nice spacious studio with a vintage shop. Instructor Hannah Turner Voakes has been filming weekly home practice tips for their blog, and if you like what you see you can join one of the £6 vinyasa, ashtanga, yin and flow classes running throughout the week via Zoom. (As if enough of your life wasn’t already being conducted over the Zoom app?)

Yoga newbie? Teach yourself the basics with the help of MoreYoga’s YouTube channel, where they’re posting a series of short ‘How To’ videos, ‘all levels’ classes with teacher Becky Crepsley-Fox, and meditation exercises for those struggling with cabin fever. For a more advanced and varied practice, access a whopping timetable of classes – we’re talking close to twenty a day, from hatha through to ‘rocket’ – with membership for £10 per week. When it all blows over, you can perfect your poses at one of dozens of locations across London. Yoga in a space where your flatmate isn’t cooking spaghetti in the next room. The dream.

Down to Earth

This beautifully designed compact studio in Tufnell Park is great if you prefer small class sizes. Get to know its teachers via pre-recorded full-length classes on the website. The usual schedule of classes will be available on demand on a pay per view basis, with members getting access to the full range of videos. Too uncoordinated to follow the poses? Just smash that pause button. There’s also a limited number of live Zoom classes if you’re craving as much of a human connection as possible while you practice.

Supply Yoga 

An affordable community studio in Clapton, Supply is a social enterprise which funds yoga classes for service users across London. While the studio’s doors are closed, their whole schedule of classes will be streamed on YouTube Live, with a unique link sent out to bookers 15 minutes ahead of each class. Support their work during isolation by joining one for just £5.

East of Eden 

No Londoner’s living room can quite compare to the high-ceilinged wood panel Walthamstow studio East of Eden but you can still connect with its calming yoga teachers while in isolation. Many of its sessions for a range of abilities and ages (toddlers included!) will be streamed and are bookable on the Mind Body Online site. A video link will be sent an hour before the class (most are £10, but there’s a £5 discount for those who can’t afford that amount). All you need now is a hand poured scented candle to set the scene. Book here
