Welcome to Kanti Yoga — a studio encouraging mindfulness, movement, kindness and community spirit.
Founded by Naomi three years ago, Kanti has grown from a one-woman show to an inclusive space with 11 teachers, each leading their own unique classes suitable for all levels.
Naomi’s love affair with yoga started 13 years ago, her passion so contagious, even her first student is still a yogi at Kanti today.
Kanti Yoga is designed with community in mind. Couches in the reception area encourage students to stay for a cup of tea, while the spacious studio’s sunset mural transports you to a tropical island.
Two deep breaths and stress fades. “It’s so important to find a space to simply breathe. You need the yin and the yang — the active and the passive,” Naomi says.
As well as a range of traditional yoga classes, Naomi offers free trauma-aware Frontline classes to current and retired policemen, fire fighters, nurses, doctors and servicemen. For girls aged 13 to 16, Kanti offers Teen Yoga classes that start with a casual chat, encouraging conversation about the pressures of being a teenage girl.
The studio really is a place for everyone, so don’t worry about your previous yoga experience or what your workout gear looks like — everyone is welcome in this friendly space.
