Our wellbeing studio is a purpose-built yoga and fitness studio, complete with a range of classes, guaranteed to keep you excited about your workouts.
Set within The Climbing Experience bouldering gym, our purpose-built studio offers a range of yoga, pilates and fitness classes for climbers and non-climbers alike.
You don’t have to be a climber to enjoy our classes. Flexibility and core strength are key elements for successful and rewarding climbing. But these are attributes that are key for a range of activities and for overall health.
As well as helping with flexibility, yoga helps with breathing, stress-reduction, ability to focus, overcoming fears and anxieties, and the prevention of injury. Whether you’re new to yoga or if you’re looking to take your practice to a new level, our classes will elevate your knowledge and uplift your body.
Try your first class free! Enjoy your first studio class on us, we know you’ll love it, so try us out before you pay.
“Went to my first yoga class today at the centre. Very much a beginner and made to feel so welcome and that I could tackle things at the pace that was right for me – thank you. Booking more. Highly recommend!”
“I truly enjoy pairing climbing with yoga, it has brought focus to my breathing when ascending difficult routes and has improved my flexibility. These things have refined my overall ability, giving me the edge on harder climbs.”
