Whether you’re thinking about long-term personal health, feel alarmingly creaky after nearly two years indoors or, simply, you think your toddler could do with rigorously applying their chaotically graceless physicality to an ancient flow method, Manchester leads the charge with a range of yoga studios for all ages and abilities across the city.

Here are some of the best:

Yoga Soul | Northern Quarter

From reestablishing your mind–muscle connection during Vinyasa Flow to burning through motions in a rocket class, Newton Street’s Yoga Soul is a welcoming space for yogis of all abilities. With online, on-demand and in-studio classes all available, you can get a 21-day introductory course for just £30.

49A Newton Street, Manchester, M1 1FT, Tel: 0161 236 1986
The Yoga Rooms | Chorlton

Carrying over the results of their pandemic-induced adaptability, The Yoga Rooms is another studio which offers a blend of in-person and online learning. Every class is run by a specialist teacher in their bright, airy South Manchester space, with yoga and pilates on offer for all-comers of all ages and, with a schedule of postnatal sessions, even babies.

483A Barlow Moor Road, Chorlton, M21 8AG, Tel: 07841 031 836
Manchester Yoga Central | Victoria Warehouse

Offering pre-bookable classes, half-day retreats and holistic training all out of their Victoria Warehouse Hotel HQ, Manchester Yoga Central enlists experienced practitioners to deliver an escape from daily life. From gentle yoga to primal flow, MYC combines the smells, sights and sounds of ancient East-Asian wellness methods to provide a sanctuary of calm, located – somewhat usefully – next door to Old Trafford Stadium.

Trafford Wharf Road, Trafford Park, Stretford, M17 1AB, Tel: 07403 321453
Bodywise | Northern Quarter

A small, friendly studio on the second floor of the Manchester Buddhist Centre, Turner Street’s Bodywise offers everything from pregnancy classes to movement workshops on the Feldenkrais Method, with a focus on advanced peace of mind over advanced positions.

16-20 Turner Street, Manchester, M4 1DZ, Tel: 0161 833 2528
The Life Centre North | Deansgate

Boasting Manchester’s ‘largest and most diverse studio programme’, The Life Centre North offers some of the more obscure strands of yoga, like Kudalini, alongside expertly trained favourites like yin, ashtanga, rocket and others. Newbies can get 21 days of unlimited classes for just £35, too.

293A Deansgate, Manchester, M3 4EW, Tel: 0161 834 6283
Hero Training Clubs | Angel Gardens

A sleek, new-age contemporary fitness and wellbeing club situated amidst one of Manchester’s latest high–end residential developments, Hero Training offers every imaginable solution to health goals you might not even know you had. Alongside an extensive and tastefully lit gym and cardio area, members can go from Vinyasa Flow classes to restorative IV drips and Yin sessions to cryotherapy chambers in the same visit.
