Welcome to our yoga classes, which are held simultaneously at the studio and online.
Our classes offer a diversity of yogic experiences: breathwork, postures, meditation, chanting, philosophy, and relaxation. That’s why most of them require more time, i.e. 1h30-1h45. Our intention is to introduce a multi-dimensional science and art of yoga to the beginners and to help experienced practitioners deepen their practice.
To book your space, follow the ‘Sign up & Pay’ link next to each class. Please sign up online before every class. If you cannot attend, deregister at least 12 hours before a class, otherwise your class credit (i.e. class pass) will be deducted from your account.
Before your first class, please fill in a short health questionnaire at least one day before the class. Kindly follow the link here.

Most of our classes are 1h30 plus and incorporate postures, breathing, meditation, relaxation, and chanting.
Ashtanga vinyasa yoga Mysore style (teacher-assisted self-practice) is for all. It is 1-2-1 practice with Irina in a setting of a small group. Students learn by heart yogic sequences, breathing, and meditation techniques, individually guided by the teacher, who tailors the practice for each student. Ashtanga vinyasa yoga is the flowing dynamic practice of progressive sequences of postures, synchronised with mental focus, breath, gazing points and energy bonds. Students develop strong focus, awareness, proprioception, and independence. The practice can be both vigorous and soft, depending on the student.
Guided counted 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.
Gentle yoga flow class is for new to yoga, new to Ashtanga yoga and for those, favouring a gentler flow. During the class, you are guided through the Standing, Seated & Finishing sequences of Ashtanga vinyasa yoga. You will also explore life affirming breathing and relaxation practices. Saturday’s session is for beginners and will introduce more in-depth yogic breathing practices.
Ashtanga and breathwork class is for all. Here you are guided through the postural (asana) sequences of Ashtanga’s Primary and Intermediate Series for about an hour. Next 30 min are dedicated to the cleansing and breathing techniques of Hatha yoga, Kundalini chakra meditation, and relaxation. These practices are not only designed to improve our health, but to bring our awareness to the most inner layers of our being, towards spiritual evolution.
Breathwork, meditation and relaxation class is for all. During this class you’ll learn how to breathe in order to improve your respiratory capacity and synchronise the functions of your brain hemispheres. These ancient yogic techniques are paramount for our mental, emotional, and physical health as well as for our spiritual involution. We also share with you the fathomless world of yogic chakra meditation, followed by the guided relaxation.
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 12 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.
We’ll provide you with mats, props, blankets and hot drinks on a cold day or cold drinks on a summer’s day. We’ll always leave time between lessons so we can chat, share experiences and enjoy each other’s company.

Cost: £65 for 60 min of 5-class package for just £290.
“I decided to join Iriness, because I felt it is an authentic yoga studio. I found Yoga beginners course really awesome, as it entailed many pillars of yoga, such as pranayama, meditation, asana, as well as yoga philosophy. After the course I realised I could not stop my yoga journey😊! Since I started practising yoga with Irina, I feel stronger and more in connection with myself from the physical and mental standpoints. Every time I join the class I feel better, no matter how I felt before. Yogic tools also help me managing my day to day life, feeling more balanced, more calm. I enjoy coming to Iriness every time, because of the community of people here and of the passion and dedication that Irina puts in each class. And, mostly, because of the tailored approach Irina has with every student. I am always looking forward to the next class. It’s a beautiful way to start your yoga journey at Iriness Yoga, every day you’ll discover yourself a little bit more.” – Laura, student
