"This is a proper yoga center, not the gym which you commonly find around London. Home environment, wooden structure and great teachers offering a variety of classes, from dynamic power yoga to alignments and meditation. I Love this Place…!!"

"This has been a great introduction to yoga. I've tried other yoga classes before but Yogahome is the only place I've felt truly at ease, totally comfortable and unselfconscious, allowing me to try yoga without feeling embarrassed by my lack of knowledge/ability. I think it's a combination of the inviting space and the loveliest of instructors. Thank you so much!"
