Our Story

After many years of teaching in sometimes rather uninspiring halls and community centres, in 2015 we were able to fulfil our dreams and open a beautiful Yoga and Wellbeing centre in Mapperley. Tucked away in a lovely garden with a natural pond, it offers a tranquil place to escape from the stresses and demands of everyday life. We call it The Secret Studio.

In winter the underfloor heating creates a cosy and welcoming ambiance. In summer we open the floor to ceiling doors and welcome in the song of the birds and the healing power of nature.
