Hello, Nice to meet you
Welcome to Yogarise – a London based, family run yoga studio with a fun and friendly vibe, excellent teachers and a huge range of classes. We offer studio classes in two locations, and a schedule from 7am to 9pm that is also live-streamed. Our On Demand Yoga and Pilates channel comes as standard with our Unlimited Pre-Pay packages and offers HD videos of varying lengths, topics, levels and styles, so you can practise with us anytime, anywhere.
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, it can also help with poor digestion, insomnia, anxiety… all sorts. With all these serious health benefits, you would think it’s a serious place to practise, 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 – online and in person. Because we know you like to mix things up we also now offer pilates and warm yoga classes, as well Baby + Me which combines baby massage with singing and movement.
A bit of background
We opened our doors in 2014 in Peckham Rye, bringing some of London’s top teachers to South London, and offering a wide range of classes at affordable prices every day of the week. We also provide community classes which are donation based (or free to attend), raising funds for a youth charity to bring yoga and mindfulness into local schools, and conveying the positive message that yoga is for everybody. As part of our expansion we opened a second space in Peckham’s Bussey Building in 2017, a brand new studio on Streatham High Road in 2019, as well as acquiring a coveted Covent Garden studio (FKA Yotopia) later that same year. During the pandemic we had to think outside the box, quickly looking at new ways to keep the business afloat. The wonderful supporters of our Crowdfund campaign enabled us to launch our first yoga product – the Yogarise Cork Mat. We also transformed our second studio space in Streatham into a co-working space. In December 2022 we moved down the road to a fab new Streatham space with wooden floors and a cosy vibe. The studio has the additional benefit of being able to offer ‘warm yoga’ in addition to our other classes and has a whole host of fab new teachers and yoga styles..
We are a small business with big ideas and we truly believe in the positive powers of yoga. Our aim it to make yoga as accessible as possible to as many people as possible. Our yoga offering has expanded in 2020-21 beyond the ‘bricks and mortar’ of our studios, to include more Teacher Trainings and Retreats, as well as a Corporate package for employee-focused wellness and team building, Yogarise On Demand (our video channel), and our Livestream classes, so people do not have to leave their homes or work in order to practise. We also continue to run our weekly Community Classes online and in the studio.
What’s on offer?
We have classes from 6.30/7am-9pm weekdays and 8am/8.30am-7pm weekends and offer a whole host of styles from Ashtanga, Jivamukti and Restorative yoga to Yin-Yang, Rocket Yoga, Pregnancy & Postnatal, Dynamic Yoga and Mandala Vinyasa. We have mats to hire from reception for £2, as well as water and snacks.
In Peckham, we now have a cafe, serving coffee, tea, cold drinks, toast, crumpets, porridge and home-made snacks. We have also teamed up with local vegan restaurant En Root, to bring you ‘Souper Tuesday’ – a hearty bowl of nourishing soup / stew, plus bread for only £6 every Tuesday from midday.
In Peckham there are rooftop yoga classes in summer which go down a treat. We offer a community class every week in each studio, as well as a ton of great workshops. We offer dedicated Beginners Yoga classes, Pregnancy Yoga and Postnatal Yoga sessions every week. We also run our own Yoga Alliance registered 200hr Teacher Training, various specialist courses for teachers, and yoga Retreats.
Our Yogarisers make the studio. From our talented team of teachers to our management and reception staff, our committed karma yogis and yoginis, to all our fab members – this is what it’s all about. Grab a cuppa, chat to other locals, hang with your teachers, come and join our yoga family. It’s not a silent studio, it’s not formal or particularly fancy, but it is built with a whole lotta love. We also collaborate with good causes to give back to the local community and beyond. At the moment we are supporting Choose Love through our Community Class donations.
We know not everyone likes being adjusted, so we’ve just introduced consent cards across all our studios. They’ll be on the front desk, and you just need to pop one at the top of your mat before class starts if you’d prefer not to receive any hands-on assists from your teacher.
