The Yoga Space is Yorkshire’s Leading Yoga Studio. Established 10 years ago by Nichi Green they run Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Hatha, Yamuna Body Rolling and Kundalini yoga classes, yoga holidays and regular workshops from leading teachers in the UK and abroad. Leeds has a keen yoga community and the studio sees over 250 students a week rolling out their mats to take classes.
Having hosted world famous teachers such as Bryan Kest, Manju Jois, Esther Ekhart, Matthew Sweeney and Tim Feldmann, The Yoga Space has a great reputation as a dedicated studio with excellent teachers and a friendly, peaceful atmosphere. It is set in an old Baptist Church and as soon as you walk in to its spacious hall you can’t help but start to relax.
The studio also has on site massage therapists with a dedicated massage room and has been hosting Union Yoga Teacher Training with Brian Cooper annually for the last 9 years on which Nichi also teaches. Last year she also started teaching online so her students can now continue their practice wherever they are. She has students from all over the world on Ekhart Yoga who take her weekly classes.
Nichi has been teaching for 13 years and has seen a tremendous growth in the popularity of yoga over the last few years. “People are working harder than ever before. Their lives are busy and action packed. They know they can walk in here and find some space. They walk out feeling more in tune with themselves and more relaxed. I’ve got more men in my classes than ever before which is encouraging. It’s great to have more mixed classes. People are realising that there’s more to yoga than just a physical practice. It gives them much more than that. We always teach from the breath. That’s the way in and once people get that they understand that they can make changes and find some peace.”
