Voted among the top yoga studios in London, MahaDevi Yoga Centre is a calm, warm and welcoming space in the capital. The boutique studio offers small, tailored classes, making yoga accessible to everyone. The centre welcomes all body types, age groups and physical abilities — there is a class for you, whoever you are, and wherever you are on your yoga journey.
The studio’s classes are rooted in traditional Hatha Yoga, which includes mantra, breath work, asana, relaxation and meditation. This leads to a holistic practice that supports students’ physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. However, the centre is not just for regular yoga classes. Why not try one of the other offerings, such as a two-hour restorative yoga immersion, gong baths, yoga nidra, sound meditations, or dive deeper with specialised bespoke yoga teacher training?
And that’s not all. At the weekends, the studio opens its doors to musicians hosting established devotional music artists and folk and jazz performers.
Although it’s located in the capital, if you are looking to escape the hustle and bustle of London life for a few hours, look no further. You can also pop into MahaDevi’s cafe and treat yourself to an artisan coffee and a snack or grab a book from the library to help pass the time if you need a mini retreat.
Classes are reasonably priced, with discounts available on 5 and 10-class pass blocks. In addition, there are concessions for the recently launched 50+ class — and anyone’s first class is free. Now here comes the best bit. Taking a class with MahaDevi has a real social impact. Proceeds from classes fund one-to-one yoga therapy for children, young adults and adults with additional and complex needs or physical disabilities.
The centre works with more than 120 families bringing the transformative power of yoga to people who most need it. This is the only purpose-built studio in the UK providing therapeutic yoga to the community of people with additional needs. By simply joining a class, you can support this wonderful and unique project.
