We’ve been working our way through all the best London yoga studios and Indaba Yoga was next on our list for places to try. I signed up for the introductory special – 10 days unlimited classes for £25. So far, I’ve tried the Ashtanga Open Level class and the Vinyasa Flow Open Level class.
The Ashtanga class was with Saskia. I found the class quite challenging. I usually attend the Ashtanga Level 1-2 at Triyoga, which is more to my ability but every yoga class is about gradual improvement and seeing the other students in a more advanced class made me want to challenge myself more. Saskia was firm but encouraging, especially to her more regular students. I left both sore and well stretched. I don’t usually take Vinyasa classes so I found the class pretty difficult. We started with some strengthening drills – leg raises and crunches and then moved onto sun salutations and then the full flow sequence. The instructor, Elisa, pushed us quite hard but I ended up having to spend a fair amount of time in child’s pose. Both classes were 90mins, so I was pretty exhausted and most definitely sweaty by the end.
The studio itself is lovely and the classrooms are bright and airy. They have complimentary organic tea, great shower and changing facilities and a little shop selling yogawear and mats. Indaba is just a short walk from Marylebone Train Station. The introductory offer was definitely great value for money and the classes themselves are well priced at £12 for 45mins, £14 for 60mins and £16 for 90mins. They even offer a Karma Yoga Programme where you can volunteer at the yoga studio in exchange for free classes!
