Yotopia – My favourite yoga studio in London!

Yotopia is the yoga studio that I must thank for getting me back into yoga and really enjoying the practice for myself; not only for the physical benefits but also for everything else that yoga has to give.

The studio, set up by former investment banker turned yoga enthusiast Lisa Campbell, offers hot yoga (35 degrees Celsius) and traditional yoga (temperate) classes in an exclusive setting with excellent teachers. Just to be clear, Yotopia does not offer Bikram yoga, which is practiced at 40 degrees Celsius, and is the exact same sequence of poses in every class. Yotopia has more creative and dynamic classes, which are different and at a lower temperature to Bikram yoga (thus not so oppressive).

My favourite classes are:

Hot Vinyasa Flow Yoga: This is what I consider a ‘staple’ class. It’s my go-to class. I know exactly what I’m getting and there are no surprises. Sharmita Ray teaches a fantastic Sunday morning class, which is both fun and inspiring. She’s incredibly knowledgeable and will adapt any position to suit different abilities and comfort zones.

Tropical Hot Yogasana: First of all – I love that the studio managed to fit ‘Tropical’ into the class name. This is by far, the most challenging yoga class that I’ve ever been to – it mixes power yoga with martial arts. Christian Salton, who teaches the class, pushes you to your limits and there you really discover what your body is capable of.

Ashtanga Yoga: For when I don’t want to drown in my own sweat, this is a great room-temperature class. Without the heat, I can focus more, especially on more advanced moves where sweat can be a hindrance. I also notice that there is less stress on my body overall.

Finally, a note on the studio itself – it’s beautiful! It’s centrally located in Covent Garden (next to where I live!); the yoga studios (one hot and one temperate) are high quality, have beautiful wooden floors, are clean and luxurious.
