About Us

Movement for Modern Life are the UK’s online yoga platform. We have become the ‘Netflix of Yoga’ (Vogue), and in the last five years become a household name for the very best online yoga and wellbeing classes.

We have grown organically, through word of mouth and evangelists. We’re down to earth. We prefer our dodgy tracksuit bottoms to brand new.  We are centred and focused on the practices that make us feel amazing, and are an antidote to frazzled modern life. We provide the tools in your toolkit to help you navigate through the word today. We are fans of yin yoga in our PJ’s at home. We’re fans of qigong and self-care healing practices with candles in our front room. We love a morning energising yoga class. We have many different styles, we are about diversity in every way. We are about yoga on and off the mat and showing folks how to live a healthy, sustainable lifestyle.

But we won’t compromise on only having the very best teachers on board. Our teachers are there for you in the comfort of your own home supporting and nurturing you to become your best self in every way, become healthier, wiser, stronger, more focused, calm and energised and transform every single day. We support smaller, grass roots environmental and health charities, and support yogis and those in wellbeing who are living their practices.

  • We’re now 5 years old
  • Run by sole founder, yogi and dog-lover, Kat Farrants
  • We’ve grown organically, but swiftly – putting our community at the heart of everything we do
  • We never, ever compromise our values – it’s about the mission, not the moment!
  • We believe in working in our own time
  • We work smart, not long
  • We take it easy, not hard
  • We believe in the work of the very best teachers
  • We follow our dharma and don’t believe in drama
  • We believe in diversity, honesty, openness, transparency
  • We believe that when we’re learning, we’re happy
  • We’re OK getting things wrong, so long as we keep trying
  • We’re flexible and mostly unstructured
  • We know that we’re only as good as our Teachers and Community
  • We’re a small, close knit team
  • We have occasional team working days and fun days out
