Yogarise

Welcome to Yogarise – your local, urban yoga studio. Step away from the busy London streets and on to your mat. Come on in and find a welcoming space for you to reinvigorate, unwind, energise or chill out. Whatever your vibe, we’ve got it covered.

A bit of background

We opened our doors in 2014, bringing some of London’s top teachers to Peckham 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 nominated good cause of the month. As part of our expansion we opened a second space in Peckham’s Bussey Building, a brand new studio on Streatham High Road in 2019 and our newest addition is in the heart of Covent Garden.

Our Aim

Our aim is to get as many people as possible breathing, moving and Yogarising – yes, it sounds cheesy but we don’t care! Yoga makes you feel good (officially) and we want to share some of that around. We are working with community partners to bring yoga and mindfulness into local schools and trying to convey the positive message that yoga really is for everybody. So, whether you’re a complete beginner or master yogi, are into meditation or fitness come along and see what Yogarise is all about.

  • Earth Mandala Vinyasa Flow38:22
    Earth Mandala Vinyasa Flow

    Jonelle Lewis

    In this Mandala Vinyasa practice we will focus on how our ability to ground helps us to be stable enough to balance and transitions seamlessly in our yoga practice and life. There is a focus on the, feet, hamstrings and hip flexors, spinal flexion and extension. A really nice practice to connect deeper into the element of earth. A well-rounded, mindfully paced but dynamic vinyasa flow yoga class. Class is in a mandala pattern, so there is no 'front' or 'back' of the mat - you'll need to practice listening rather than looking at your teacher as you change your perspective. You may find this causes you to listen more deeply to how you feel throughout your practice and move with greater skill and ease to how your body feels. This class will have you feeling balanced, grounded, uplifted and ready for your day. You will need two bricks.

  • Kundalini Kriya55:04
    Kundalini Kriya

    Kiranjot

    A kriya is a specific sequence of postures or actions for a specific purpose. I like to call them recipes, each step works in turn to create a specific effect for your body, mind and spirit. There are hundreds of Kundalini Kriyas, this one is called the Kriya for Elevation. It is a simple practice involving lots of flexing the spine, stretching of the legs and stimulating breath of fire. The practice finishes with a more challenge held meditation Sat Kriya which is a key practice in kundalini Yoga. It encourages circulation of panic life force through all the chakras. It’s a great practice to help relieve symptoms of depression. This sequence has breath of fire to begin with so please watch my introduction to Kundalini Yoga if this is a new practice for you or you haven’t quite mastered it yet. Tune in to this traditional Kundalini yoga class or Kriya, as they are known in the Kundalini tradition. This full Kundalini yoga class involves chanting, mudra and physical hatha yoga poses and a beautiful, long Savasana to finish.

    Awareness practice

    Adrianna Zaccardi

    In this short tutorial, Adrianna guides you through an awareness practice that can be used alone, but also before each of the restorative yoga classes. Scan the layers of the body (physical, mental, emotional or spiritual) to listen into what is present in your body right now, so that it may inform our choices as we move into practice, be it poses, or a place in which to anchor our attention during each pose. A really useful short practice to listen to to connect to yourself before any yoga class, but especially useful for Adrianna's restorative classes.
