North or central London yoga class recommendations
October 31, 2016 4:10 AM   Subscribe

I'd like to continue to learn yoga when I move to London in the coming months. North or central London would be best. I've done research but I can't figure out what would the best class for me. So I thought I would ask for some personal experience-based recommendations.

I'm quite fat and I would like to join a class that is welcoming to people of all abilities, ages and sizes, it doesn't have to be solely for plus-size people. I am currently in a beginners' basics class which is not too fast paced, which I like a lot.

I haven't been in forever, but I took classes with Hana at Mindful Movements. They have different types of classes in different locations in North London. Feel free to contact me directly for more details. (I'd rather not post publicly which of the locations I went to, in case I want to pick it up again.)

It's been a few years but I used to take classes with Lisa Sanfilippo and really enjoyed her style. I didn't find her classes to have a competitive vibe - very open and an atmosphere of meeting people where they are (I am very not-bendy and never felt self-conscious). She teaches in a couple of studios in Islington, Notting Hill, Camden and runs a beginners course.

Triyoga. I haven't been for a couple of years but I liked the restorative and other gentle classes. There ARE some intense classes and people there but they can be easily avoided.

Caroline Dollar runs independent classes in north London, is fantastic, and also one of the warmest and most welcoming people you could ever meet. Also has experience teaching people of all ages, ability and sizes.
