“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

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.
Spiritual Hatha with Saskia
Inspired by the belief that Hatha yoga represents the sun and moon, aiming to balance these two energies, creating an equilibrium between body and mind. First you will focus on the physical aspect of yoga (the asana), concentrating on alignment, fluidity and finding space within the body. Followed by exploring the spiritual and philosophical side of yoga, through practices such as pranayama, observation, mantra and meditation.
Postnatal Yoga with Liz
A class for you that you can bring your baby to. This gentle yoga class allows you to start to reconnect with your body, stretch, easy out aching shoulders and find your inner strength. However you birthed your baby, it will take time for you to feel like ‘you’ again and this class offers you that opportunity in a baby friendly environment along with other ladies who, like you, may not have had a full night’s sleep! so plenty of restorative postures too.
Beginners Pilates with Sharon
These classes are designed for those who have yet to try Pilates and need to learn the fundamentals on which to build their practice. Classes will focus on the basic movements of the Pilates Method. Modifications will be given for those with physical limitations. This class is a great way to start and to watch the transformation in how you look, and more importantly, how you feel.
