Global Self Care- London: yoga studios with design in mind

Space and surroundings can be very important to Yoga practice; it sets the scene for an hour+ of movement and inner workings, and it’s the space your energetic field is bouncing around. Sometimes clean, contemporary minimal design works better for decluttering and focussing the mind in a class. London offers countless yoga studios to drop into, but for those seeking some design-led studios then here’s a roundup of favourites from around town…
