hot yoga fusion

9am - 9.30am: Hot Yoga Fusion

with Luisa-Marie Quinn

Start your day with Luisa as she guides you through a 30-minute hot yoga session as she fuses her militant style which stems from her professional personal trainer expertise into this hot yoga session. Bring a towel and a bottle of water, and get ready to combat and challenge yourself through this vigorous practice. All levels welcome.

hot yoga with clara

9.45am - 10.15am: Hot Yoga Fusion

with Clara Prats

If 9am is too early for you and you've been out all night on Friday (this is probably me) - we've got another hot yoga slot by popular demand. Let Clara guide you through each pose as she focuses on the alignment against every breath and have her soothing but firm teaching style clear your head space and challenge yourself on the mat physically and mentally. Bring an open mind, a bottle of water and a towel - you will need it. All levels welcome.

rocket yoga with kyle

10.30am - 11.00am: Rocket Reggae

with Kyle Anderson

Move to the groove of Jamaica as our dancer-turned-yogi Kyle soulfully guide us through this vigorous ashtanga practice. With reggae music playing in the background, we'll playfully move through our practice and who knows, maybe have the courage to attempt a crow or a handstand here? Must have basic knowledge of yoga.

funky vinyasa with emma

11.15am - 11.45am: Funky Vinyasa Yoga

with Emma Tuvera

Get your funk on with Emma, our newly graduated yoga teacher. She's our resident instructor for our Beginner's yoga class, but in this class, she'll guide us through our salutations, linking each movement with the breath alongside some funky poses paired with a series of groovy tunes. All levels welcome, so bring your whole clique.

therapeutic yoga with simone

12.00pm - 12.30pm: Therapeutic Yoga

with Simone Venner

As if you've just gone and done all the classes earlier in the morning, it's time to recuperate with Simone. This restorative class will help clear the mind guided by some pranayama breathing and restorative poses to heal the body. Bring a blanket if you wish or an eye mask, and just relax for the next half an hour.

flash mob yoga with kathy

1.00pm - 1.45pm: FLASH MOB YOGA!

with Kathy Ran

End the festival by joining in on our flash mob yoga led by the owner of Black Lotus Yoga herself, queen Kathy Ran!

We do this on the patio of El Vaquero restaurant, just right by the studio. The objective here is to have as much fun as possible, and as we're facing the main road, we'll definitely turn a few heads here as drivers drive by...

We're so proud and excited to announce our new platform here on Black Lotus. Our objective is to not only bring together our lovely yoga community, but also strengthen and support each other through our very own stories - what brought us on our mats, highlights, to a variety of educational articles written by our very own yogis and teachers.

Since we're on the topic of stories, I thought I would christen the start of this wonderful community with my story.

Hi, my name is May. For all you Black Lotus regulars, you may see me floating around the studio at least 5 times a week. I am a newly qualified Registered Yoga Teacher, but also through my background in Journalism and Digital Marketing (my day job), Kathy and I thought it would be an amazing idea to put this blog together. I will be working with Kathy on this platform, to try and bring as many of us together together and educate one another along the process.

My yoga story began when I moved to the United Kingdom. Being miles away from home, I found yoga through university. I loved how it made me feel and I don't think I've ever stopped since. Somewhere along the line, I started having back pains, after countless tests, needle pricks, hospital visits, the doctors ruled it down to a Vitamin D deficiency, a mild scoliosis (sideways curvature of the spine) and a bad posture (guilty for this one). Yoga found me at the time where I needed the most and I've never had issues with my back since.

Since I found Black Lotus a year and a half ago, I signed up for a Gold Membership right after my Intro Offer, and I've been made to feel part of the family since, and I'm so glad I'm part of this little yoga community. I even became a yoga instructor along the way... This journey has been amazing... and it's only just begun.

If you have an interesting story on how yoga found you or how you've found yoga, life after yoga, we would love to hear it.

We hope you enjoy this blog as much are we are enjoying putting it together. Let's build a supportive, integrated and educational community together and watch this space grow.

If you have anything you would like to share please contact Kathy or May at :
