All our classes are 1h30-1h45m long and incorporate postures, breathing, meditation, relaxation, and chanting.
Our online Mysore-style Ashtanga class (teacher-assisted self-practice) is for practitioners with at least 1-2 months of experience. It is a 1-2-1 practice with Irina in a setting of a small group. Ashtanga vinyasa yoga is the dynamic practice of progressive sequences of postures, synchronised with mental focus, breath, gazing points and energy bonds. Practice is tailored to each student.
During Mysore class, students learn asana sequences by heart, individually guided by the teacher. Students take ownership over their practice, developing strong focus, awareness, proprioception, and independence.
Our counted guided Ashtanga vinyasa yoga class is for students with an established Ashtanga or vinyasa yoga practice. Irina counts the class in Sanskrit, leading students through the Standing, Primary (partially Intermediate) and Finishing sequences of Ashtanga, completing with pranayama and guided rest.
Our gentle Ashtanga yoga class is for those new to yoga, new to Ashtanga yoga and for those favouring a gentle guided flow. During the class, Charlotte introduces step-by-step Standing, Seated & Finishing sequences of Ashtanga yoga, accompanied by breathing and relaxation.
Our asana & breathwork class is for all. Irina guides the class through the postures of Ashtanga Primary and Intermediate Series, followed by the yogic cleansing, breathing, meditation, and relaxation practices.
Our Sunday breathe & relax class is for all and is free. Irina starts with a short postural practice and dives into the simple but powerful breathing, meditation and relaxation practices.
We welcome both new and experienced yogis to Iriness. Our founder and in-house yoga teacher, Irina, teaches a personalised approach for every student.
Iriness’ prime focus is spreading the method of Ashtanga vinyasa yoga. This is a dynamic practice, where postural sequences are predefined and linked with the breath (Ujjayi), energy locks (bandhas), and gazing points (drishti) to create a meditative flow of awareness of our body and mind. It aims to focus deeply within and enable practitioners to integrate senses and experience states of higher intelligence, or consciousness. This method is recommended to practise regularly (4-6 days a week), which will develop a strong, mobile body and peaceful mind. Most of our classes are Mysore-style, i.e. the teacher works with each student on a 1-2-1 basis in the setting of a small group. This way each student can go with her or his own pace, breath and abilities.
Your yoga practice is your own and it’s important that we find you the routine most suited to your gender, age and current state of mind and body. This routine will support you physically and mentally and our experienced teachers will be there with you every step of the way.
Online sign up is required before every regular class. There is no drop-in at Iriness.
If you can’t attend a class, please, deregister at least 6 hours before a class or your credit (class pass) will be deducted from your account.
We advise you to bring your own mat (more hygienic). Beginners can borrow our mats. Please bring a hand towel and yoga mat towel.
Please come to practice on an empty stomach and refrain from drinking during the practice.
Our studio has been built to provide you with a space of wellbeing: it’s full of light, warmth, and coziness. We’ve added underfloor heating for maximum comfort on winter days, ambient lighting to uplift your spirit, and practical amenities such as two toilets and a kitchen.

“I’ve been practising yoga for a few years now, and I can honestly say that Irina is the best teacher I’ve had, she is a true professional. Yoga is her way of life, and the passion she has for it is addictive! I came to Irina with no experience, and with a lot of patience and kindness she taught me everything from scratch, and I improved as time went by. But that’s not all, yoga has also helped me to manage my life with less stress, breathing deep and taking everything in the right proportion 🙂 Thank you Irina for introducing me to the wonderful world of yoga!” – Eyal Reich, student
