MoreYoga, which has over 20 studios across the capital, will host the free sessions every week in April at various MoreYoga studios throughout Stress Awareness Month.

Commenting on yoga’s natural capability as a stress reliever, MoreYoga founder Shamir Sidhu says; “From battling the killer commute to high pressured careers, not to mention the price of living – London is a breeding ground for stressed people! We want people to find the time to get away from the everyday stresses and enjoy a good workout in a tranquil environment. Yoga is a powerful stress-reliever and MoreYoga instructors are trained to help people find the balance that we so often lose when working and living in London.”

Regular yoga practice is proven to positively impact overall health and provides users with a renewed outlook following even a short class. MoreYoga’s sessions will be suitable for a range of fitness and yoga levels, as the classes will be mixture of simple yoga positions for stress-relief and easy mindfulness and meditation practices to help find balance in mind and body.
