Sunday 20th - 10, 12 & 5

New Website Launch
Soon we will be launching our new website over on www.hotyoga.co.uk. Among other things, once we do that we will be introducing an online payment system so you can buy memberships before you come in to class. Watch this/that space! :)
Our New Student Introductory Offer has been improved for 2014.
- 2 weeks unlimited yoga
This offer is available to residents of Greater London and Surrey on their first visit to the studio.
April Thailand Retreat
We are heading back to Jungle Yoga in Khao Sok National Park in April 2014. This will be a 10-day retreat from 10-20th April (ends on Easter Sunday). We are taking deposits and the retreat is already half-full (as of 1st Dec). Full details available from reception.
World Champion ChauKei Ngai 29th Sept
We are in the process of changing the company and studio name. We are now Richmond Yoga Ltd and the studio is The Richmond Yoga Centre.
This is a name change, not a yoga change. We continue to teach precisely the same yoga, with precisely the same schedule. Nothing changes within the studio except the name.
For existing students who have any questions about this, we have more information at the studio, we are sending more information out via email and we are open to questions at reception.
See you in the same hot room, doing the same series of yoga, soon.

BYR Becomes CarbonNeutral®
We've talked about doing this for a long time but this year we have finally gotten around to doing something about it and have been accredited as a CarbonNeutral® company.
We now offset our carbon footprint by sponsoring a project to capture the volatile greenhouse gas methane from a managed landfill site.
We're not absolutely certain but we believe that we may be the first Bikram Yoga studio in the world to be accredited with this status.
“No more back or neck spasms, yeah!”
