Co-owner Amy Par­tridge said: “We were ex­pect­ing a cou­ple of hun­dred peo­ple but we got well over that by the end of the day. Peo­ple came down who were al­ready mem­bers, and then ob­vi­ously we’ve got loads of new peo­ple as well.”

Ms Par­tridge and busi­ness part­ner Leanne We­ston, both from Ruis­lip, were in­spired to open the stu­dio af­ter trav­el­ling around south-east Asia.

She ex­plained: “I stud­ied yoga while trav­el­ling and did it a lit­tle bit t back here. I wanted to bring yoga into my ev­ery­day life, and give back k to peo­ple what I’ve been able to find from it.”

Ms We­ston added: “I’ve got sco­l­io­sis, my spine is slightly twisted, and I’ve spent years go­ing to doc­tors, chi­ro­prac­tors, I’ve had X-Rays in hos­pi­tal and noth­ing re­ally worked and I was in pain.

“Then I heard about the hot yoga, and I still can can’t t be­lieve how much it’s helped me, and now I’m com­pletely pain-free.

“It’s mas­sive in Aus­tralia and mas­sive in Amer­ica. There were a few stu­dios in Lon­don when we started, but it wasn’t as big as I thought it should be.

“Since we’ve been open it’s been amaz­ing. See­ing peo­ple’s progr pro­gres­sion from when they started to wh where they are now is just unbe un­be­liev­able.

“P “Peo­ple who have lost stones in weigh weight, peo­ple who came in re­ally shy, a af­ter a cou­ple of months just beco be­come com­pletely dif­fer­ent peo peo­ple.”
