Retreat Yoga Studio will open its doors in February 2018. Located on New Cross Road, two minutes away from the station, the studio offers a perfect location for yogis who live, work or study in South East London.

Retreat will offer daily yoga and meditation classes ranging from beginners to advanced, as well as sound healing, therapy and counselling.

Our ground floor studio is ideal for small group classes, comfortably fitting 9 mats. Downstairs you'll find a larger space, where sessions for up to 19 attendees can take place. There's a shower room on site and plenty of space to get changed, so you can squeeze a yoga class before or after work.

Our crowdfunding goal: £6000

We aim to raise enough funds to cover the costs of:

- Refurbishment and fit out.

- Yoga props and mats.

- Marketing campaign.

- Launch weekend (free classes)
