Urban Yoga is throwing out the rulebook when it comes to ashtanga yoga practice. There’s no chanting, no meditation and no Sanskrit (poses are referenced by their English names). Classes are set to music, and there’s a screen projecting videos of vivid landscapes, wild animals, sunsets and glittering beaches. It’s more like stepping into an aerobics class than an ashram, which is perhaps the appeal. Time Out road-tested the studio’s signature class Urban Yoga, which is designed for all levels of yogic ability. As we step into the light-filled reception area, we’re immediately impressed. It’s a chilled contrast to the busy streets outside and it smells of peppermint, thanks to bottles of complimentary herbal teas on offer. Our instructor has a Madonna mic, which she uses to guide us through the vinyassa flow. It’s fast and demands a fair bit of prior knowledge, so we’d suggest opting for the six-week Urban Base class if you’re new to yoga or it's been a while.
