About Yogahome

Yogahome offers 100 classes a week including Yoga, Pilates, Meditation, Kid’s Ballet and Tai Chi! We also offer a variety of therapies and one to one sessions.

Founded in 1998, Yogahome is a friendly, relaxed centre where people can come and try something new or develop their practice further. We are easily reached from Stoke Newington, Hackney, Dalston and Islington. Set up and run by Maria Gandy and Billie Chan (right).

These classes are funded entirely by Yogahome and are free to the receiving organisation. Details of our current charitable projects can be viewed here.
