“Our ikigai is different for all of us, but one that we have in common is that we are all searching for meaning.” Hector Garcia Puigcerver

Ikigai is made up of two beautiful yoga studios. Our larger studio has a hydroponic living wall which is believed to enhance relaxation and improve air quality by removing VOCs from the air.
Our bamboo flooring is heated throughout, providing comfort during those cold winter mornings and our equipment is ethical and organic where possible. We have bolsters, blocks, yoga mats and everything else to make your experience as easy and comfortable as possible.
Mind, Body, Movement with Sunni
Through intention led movement, this class will explore the connections between the physical body, the mind and all the bits in between. The practice will move through a series of asanas (poses) in a progressive and conscious way, always with options for variation and regression. You will find a sense of strength and stability with in the body, create room
for fluidity and balance and find stillness throughout, allowing the mind to quieten so that you can enquire within. This class is suitable for all levels and experience.
Sunrise Flow with Dan
Sunrise Flow with Dan is an accessible vinyasa flow.
Starting your day on the mat will help you to feel energised and set the intention for the day ahead.
During the practice you will move through the flow and connect to the breath, allowing space to look inwards, aswell as physically moving and stretching the body in preparation for the day ahead.
Yin Yoga with Emma
Yin Yoga is a slow paced practice where postures are held for longer. Deep stretching and combined poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body, the tendons, fascia, and ligaments, with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.
