“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
Welcome to Ikigai Holistic – Yoga Studio and Wellbeing Centre in Whitstable.
A space to rest, restore and inspire within the heart of Whitstable.
At Ikigai Holistic our aim is to provide a space of tranquillity to nurture and enliven the soul. We run a range of classes which consist of many styles of Yoga including Power Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Kundalini Yoga and more. We also offer AntiGravity, Pilates, Alchemy Crystal Sound Baths and a variety of monthly workshops.

We pride ourselves on our fluid approach, updating regularly to create classes and workshops that focus on a holistic approach to wellbeing.
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.

Working through a range of postures you will explore useful tips and variations which allow you to explore the benefits yoga can have on the mind and body. Dan aims to create a space for you to feel comfortable in your practice whether you are just starting out on your yoga journey, working with injuries or an experienced yogi. You will leave this class feeling refreshed for your day ahead.
Body & Breath with Jade
Jade creates a safe and held space to allow students to uniquely explore and enquire into themselves. It is an experience created with clear themes and emotive music, alongside the guidance of connecting movement with breath. Each carefully orchestrated offering is a play of thought provoking sequenced chapters, combing movement with the power to pause and allow for curiosity in each moment. It will be based around the movements and shapes of vinyasa flow and be a blend and mixture of slow, grounded, gentle and at times strong.
