Ashridge Yoga Studio

Yoga in the heart of Ashridge Forest, Berkhamsted


to Wood Yoga, transformative yoga in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire and Central London, as well as yoga retreats both in the UK and abroad. Wood Yoga is a partnership between Mike Farr and Soraya Allison.


We live, practice and teach yoga in a peaceful sanctuary in the heart of the forest in Berkhamsted. Although our individual practices are different; Mike teaches Iyengar Yoga which is a very systematic and focused practice to integrate mind and body. Soraya teaches an eclectic Hatha yoga based on a tantric lineage that helps reflect who we truly are. We both have a dedication to teaching in a whole and truthful way. Yoga postures (asanas) are not about making shapes or how flexible you are, they are an inner journey of exploration  and self-discovery. At Wood Yoga we offer a space and community that guides,  supports and nourishes you on this journey.


At our forest studio, situated 10 minutes from Berkhamsted and Tring,  We offer a completely different experience to busy town and city yoga classes. The tranquil environment and small class sizes allow us the opportunity to work more individually with you, which can enable you to develop in your practice more quickly. The peaceful environment allows you to engage more fully, connecting mind and body and achieving wholeness. If you are new to yoga you will gain a good foundation from our beginners yoga classes, in which to start your yoga journey. More experienced students will learn to deepen the actions of individual asana and gain more knowledge of the philosophy of yoga.


Alternatively, join us for drop in classes at the Town Hall, Berkhamsted High St, or  Yogaloft and Triyoga in London (with Mike). For an immersion in both styles, join us for a week in the French Alps in the Summer. Check out our timetable to find a suitable class for you.
