At Union Yoga we are passionate about yoga, health and well-being. We believe the ancient practice of yoga can be used by everyone, any shape, any age and any level of fitness to improve your overall health and state of mind.

We provide a safe and comfortable environment to enable you to fully relax and release all your tensions. A space where you can come to switch off from the outside world. A space that becomes your private sanctuary to enable you to re-charge your batteries and gain some inner and outer peace and calmness.
