New To Yoga West
We are a community studio based in between Acton, Chiswick and Shepherd’s Bush in an old art-deco factory. It’s a beautiful building and a simple and beautiful space.
We run around 30 yoga and Pilates classes a week in a range of styles for a variety of levels. The majority of classes are physically demanding styles such as Jivamukti, Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow, however, we also offer slower classes, Beginners Classes, Pilates and Pre and Post-natal Classes. We hold regular yoga, Pilates and meditation workshops. We have carefully selected our teachers, who are among the most knowledgeable, inspirational and supportive in London.
We offer classes suitable for all levels and ages and we invite you to practice yoga with us and join our community.
Yoga supports people to live lives centred around who they are and to live happily with themselves and those around them. Yoga is a life-long physical practice that gives people greater health, fitness, body-awareness and wellbeing.
Yoga West is an environment where everyone feels comfortable to explore and develop their yoga practice. We are a friendly and informal community. We have a range of people who attend the studio from advanced students to teachers with 20 years practice to people who have never done a yoga class. Everyone is treated the same irrespective of experience age or background.
People come to the studio and to yoga for a number of reasons but they stay because it gives them a sense of belonging and because of how yoga changes them as people.
Choosing The Right Class
We offer a range of classes from physically demanding level 2 Vinyasa and Jivamukti classes to slow and gentle restorative and yin classes.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Frequently Asked Questions
I’m not flexible
I’m not very fit
Can I do a few privates first?
Of course! We offer private and corporate yoga programs all over London so it’s easy to schedule a few privates. We find many new students benefit both in terms of confidence and knowing the basics from starting off with a few one-on-ones with a teacher and are then ready and confident to attend regular classes. We can organise these to take place at the studio (schedule permitting) or at a time and place of your choice. We charge £90 for privates at the studio and for privates at a place of your choosing. Please call or email the studio to book in.
I’ve not done yoga before
Do I need to book in advance?
About half of our students book in advance and about half simply turn up. It’s simple to book in advance using the MindBody App or via our site. You normally don’t need to book in advance, however, for weekday evening classes and Saturday and Sunday morning classes it’s not a bad idea to do so.
Pregnancy classes have the same pricing options as other classes. However you should fill in the separate PRE NATAL REGISTRATION FORM. Existing customers who have previously filled a non-pregnancy registration form and who wish to begin attending a pregnancy form must also complete a PRE NATAL REGISTRATION FORM. Please ask for one at reception.
The studio’s policy is that pregnant woman should not attend classes in their first trimester unless they have spoken to their doctor and have received the OK to do so. Women in their second and third trimester can attend pregnancy classes. These are Thursdays at 5pm with Pavlina and Sunday at 11:45am with Rebecca.
If you have an existing practice and no complications in your pregnancy and are in your second trimester there are a number of “pregnancy-friendly” slow flow classes you may attend. Please email us in advance before doing so.
If you would like to attend other classes please email the studio about your pregnancy, yoga experience and which classes you would like to attend. We will then check in with our teachers and confirmed if they are ok for you to attend.
Please don’t hesitate to call or hesitate with any queries or questions. We look forward to seeing you in class.
What should I bring?
Just bring yourself and wear what you would wear to the gym or on a run minus the socks and trainers. We suggest you bring your own mat, though you're able to rent them at the studio for £2. Some people also use a yoga towel. If you would like your own mat and towel and don't yet have one you can buy them from our shop online here or at the studio. We also sell special bundles of equipment online and in store to help you get started.
