triyoga: An Oasis of Calm in the Heart of London

January is often a time to begin something different, make a change or get healthy. A yoga course at triyoga seemed the perfect place to start.

Set in the charming Kingly Court in Soho, the triyoga centre (one of three in London) is a welcoming oasis of candles and calm. There is a soothing quietness as soon as you enter the studio and a sense that people are here to learn and escape the chaos of everyday life.

My teacher, Leela Miller, has been teaching yoga for more than 20 years. Her obvious passion for yoga and the way she explains of some of the philosophy behind it is truly inspiring: “At the heart of yoga is change”.

I’m brand new to yoga yet I found I was able to follow the class and adopt all the positions. Leela is a patient teacher and the class is just the right size. We were introduced to some of the fundamental yoga poses, concentrating on healthy alignment and establishing a deeper awareness of breathing.

I found the class challenging yet enjoyable and left feeling incredibly calm and centred. It provides the perfect escape from the fast pace of daily city life and I can already tell that triyoga will become my regular retreat in London. Watch this space as I’ll update you on my progress during the course.

Triyoga has centres in Primrose Hill, Soho and Covent Garden and specialise in yoga and pilates drop-in classes for beginners and experienced yogis as well as a range courses and treatments.

    I love this form of yoga, and infact any form of yoga, it connects me in mind body and spirit.

    Fits in perfectly with our mind body soul approach to singing at thecouragetosing.co.uk

    Yeah – that’s one of the keys to starting yoga: finding a class and instructor that are open and friendly to beginners. Thanks for posting your experience in getting started and encouraging others to take up a class too.
