Yogarise Peckham



We are Emma and Sean (and Misty the dog) and we are Peckham locals who love yoga. Having spent years travelling across London to our favourite teachers and studios, we thought… why not bring them to us instead, so our friends and neighbours can join in the fun, minus the hassle? Essentially, we think yoga makes you feel good. If we can share a bit of that around, make more people feel good, what’s not to love? So… Make it happen people. Get your ass-ana on the mat and get yogarising!


Yoga is a transformational practice that encourages the union of mind, body and spirit. It helps us to tune in to our body’s needs, rewarding us with a whole host of health benefits both mental and physical. As well as increased flexibility, strength and balance (and a toned, honed yoga bod!), it can also help with poor digestion, insomnia, anxiety, asthma, arthritis.. all sorts. With all these serious health benefits, you would think it’s a serious practice, but here at Yogarise, we believe life is for living and having fun is part of that – we look forward to welcoming you to our growing community of Peckham yogis and yoginis.


We feel that by setting up in the Bussey Building we are helping to breathe new life into an historic space, making the most of its large warehouse windows, filling the studios with a beautiful light. Copeland Park is already established within the London arts scene, housing a collection of studios, workshops and art spaces. Yogarise has built on this and supports new and emerging artists and designers by exhibiting their work on our walls and in our retail area. We are currently showcasing works by Kate Philipson ‘Leopards Lunch’ and Skev.


We opened our doors back in 2014 in this original space. Light, airy and open plan, Studio #1 has grey vinyl floors, chipboard walls and plenty of colour and character.


Our new, slightly cosier space, Studio #2 has a more intimate, relaxed feel with polished wooden floors, mood lighting and good vibes aplenty. Come on in and… let go.


Come out of Peckham Rye station and walk straight ahead, on to Rye Lane. Turn right, then cross over the road at the zebra crossing. The entrance to 133 Rye Lane is just to the left of the crossing.

Studio 1 is on the second floor of ‘B Block stairs’. To find Studio 2, continue walking down the alley, use ‘C Block’ stairs and we are on the first floor, to the left.
