The Life Centre is a friendly haven, where yoga, Pilates and natural therapies inspire well-being in the communities
of Notting Hill and Islington, and for our many visitors from further afield - we love how our community spirit lifts everyone working or visiting here.
We know how vital it is to have the best teachers and therapists and to offer a fantastic choice of yoga styles and therapies. We understand how to nurture relationships in our specialised pregnancy, and mums & babies classes, and how to ease newcomers into a regular practice, with our beginners’ courses. Plus, we run exciting workshops with resident and guest teachers whose experience and imagination brings a freshness to yoga on each occasion.
Our history Founded in Notting Hill 1993, The Life Centre is one of London’s oldest centres dedicated to yoga, Pilates and therapies. Over the years, many (maybe even most) of the UK’s top yoga and Pilates teachers have passed through the big wooden door of our Notting Hill centre, a beautiful quiet converted house and chapel – and several of our earliest students (and some of our original teachers and staff) are still Life Centre regulars. In 2011, we were delighted to open our second location, in Islington, a bright and cheery space with 2 large studios in a converted warehouse which offers a similarly broad range of classes to those in Notting Hill. In addition, in 2003, we set up our yoga education arm, Yogacampus, which offers one of the UK’s very top yoga teacher training programmes, as well as a wide range of other specialist courses and workshops.

The aim of Traditional Yoga is to restore an understanding of the relationship of the different limbs of yoga and to
present this knowledge in its original, whole and undiluted practical form for the benefit of all practioners and teachers. Both hatha yoga (the science of body) as given by the Nath gurus and raja yoga ( the science of mind) as given by Patanjali. The organization was established to make available to a wider public, the guidance of A.L.V. Kumar, recognized as an inspirational leader and accomplished yoga master.
We offer two silent meditation and yoga retreats per year, a 15 day winter course at a peaceful resort in the forest of Karnataka, S. India and a 10 day course in the UK in August. Kumar is a Yoga Alliance certified instructor and offers RYT-200 and RYT-500 certification teacher training courses. In Hyderabad he teaches large scale free public yoga and health awareness workshops. He was recently honored with the Bharat Jyoti Award and the Glory of India Award for his meritorious public service in the field of yoga.
Kumar has been a lifelong practitioner of yoga and meditation. His interest in teaching came about as a result of a car crash that resulted in complete paralysis of the lower body. He used his knowledge of yoga to completely heal himself. Following this experience he decided to dedicate as much time as possible to teaching yoga to heal both body and mind.

Public and Private Yoga Session in North London N10, N2, N8, N6 (Muswell Hill, East Finchley, Crouch End, Highgate)
classes in dynamic hatha yoga for students with all experience. We will work on strength and flexibility in equal balance. Each class had themed around a particular physical alignment principle as well as a specific theme, providing opportunity to connect to ourselves on and off the mat.
I am a qualified yoga teacher and I started teaching in September 2001. I have been practicing yoga for more than 15
years and self-practicing astanga since 1999. I believe that yoga is accessible to all of us and through regular practice we can experience profound changes in our mind and body. I came to yoga (like so many of us) with an inflexible body and a stressed, scattered mind. My own experience has taught me that yoga is an enjoyable way to release and make available energetic potential within our bodies and our minds. We can become more flexible, physically stronger and improve our stamina, concentration, focus and awareness.
“Where we put our attention, that’s where energy goes.”
How do we steady our thoughts, quiet our hearts and speak
with clarity and purpose, when we are engaged in something that often feels stressful, difficult, and unsettling?
By practicing just a few yoga principles and techniques, ones that can be applied easily to any fears and phobias, (e.g. stress of public speaking) you will be able to help steady the mind, calm the heart and communicate with clarity and purpose:
Staying present gives greater access to what you know, what you want to say and allows more space to make choices and decisions on how to respond to what’s happening in the moment. Attending to physical sensations rather than emotional ones and maintain an attitude of gentle curiosity, open to discovery when speaking rather than trying to be perfect, you'll feel more alive, engaged and engaging.
If we approach any stressful event with the same kind and gentle attitude, then we'll find opportunities for equanimity and clarity.
KanBe Yoga is a concept that everyone KanBe Yoga. Yoga means union and treats the mind, body and soul as one. Yoga
is not for a select few, we are all connected and we all KanBe Yoga. If mind, body and soul are one, then working on any of the three will impact the others. Everyone has their own path in life; Yoga should be adaptable, why else would there be so many kinds?
KanBe Yoga is taught by Kandy; who teaches privately and also runs classes in London.

As our lives develop and become more complex, finding space and time to reconnect the body and mind is an ever-increasing
challenge. Add the arrival of children, and your daily juggling act, clever enough to incorporate your favorite Yoga or Pilates class, becomes too difficult to maintain; the exercise ball inevitably is allowed to drop.

At Stretching the City, we don’t think yoga should be intimidating or exclusive. We don't think it's religious and it's certainly not just for girls. It's not too easy, slow or boring (try one of our ashtanga or vinyasa flow classes if you don't believe us) and we don't believe that by practicing yoga you need to abandon other things that you enjoy doing - be that going to the gym or a night out on the town.
The Stretching the City team comprises of yoga teachers who share these beliefs and wish to teach yoga to people who would benefit from a quieter mind and a healthier body to better navigate the stresses of city living.
It's with this in mind that we provide affordable and accessible yoga classes and courses, so more people can enjoy the plentiful benefits of yoga – without worrying about being able to touch their toes.

I am a +500-hr Yoga Alliance certified teacher and therapist. I’ve practiced yoga since the age of 14. My training
and teaching experience allows me to combine traditional Indian Yoga styles with a contemporary western approach to authentically help guide others to find their own love for, and benefits from Yoga. I honour my teachers Shane Perkins, Dr Senthil, Shiva Rea, Jivamukti, Richard Freeman and Edward Clark. I teach a wide range of people, from professional cage fighters, footballers, snowboarders to pregnant ladies, kids and the over-50's.
My teaching is spontaneous, light-hearted and I aim to adapt to meet the energies and needs of the group. Music is a prominent feature of the class and sequences flow with rhythm and beat. Classes can be dynamic and uplifting yet always move towards inner stillness.
Yoga is an integral part of me and I strive to continually learn. I teach from the heart and only from personal experience. It is an honour to share this ancient science and art with others.
KB Yoga was formed in 2004 by Kelly Bunyan. As the Chief Instructor of KB Kickboxing and KB Kung Fu, Kelly decided
that offering a complementary practice would be highly beneficial for both her existing and potential members.
Not everybody is attracted to the high energy, cardiovascular workout of Kickboxing, nor the self defence training that Kung Fu offers. So to cater to the needs of those people seeking an alternative form of exercise Astanga Yoga was introduced to the monthly schedule. There is an air of relaxed informality which offers an opportunity for an enjoyable experience. Our instructors are highly qualified and approachable, creating a friendly, safe space to exercise in.
