It’s true, Yoga does…

It’s true, Yoga does…

Energise Your Body

Yoga uses natural, bodyweight-only exercises to safely build your core strength.

Release Toxins and Stress

Yoga has a unique and natural way of twisting the toxins free from your body.

Free Your Mind

Yoga has a balancing effect on the stresses of life, helping you think more clearly again.

Our Philosophy

At abaYoga we appreciate that life can be complicated – that’s why we’re so flexible!

We want you to be free to practice Yoga when (and how) it suits you, which is why our fees, timetables and practice rules allow you the freedom to work around your life’s demands. There are no fixed course timetables, and you can miss classes and come back when it suits you, without penalty.

We also encourage you to practice with compassion for yourself at all times. This means progressing at your own pace, within your own limits. With nothing to prove to anyone, we facilitate your practice by offering modifications and challenges; we never instruct.

Nothing is compulsory, except one thing: breathing!

Our Passion

When we returned from Sydney to South Croydon in 2016, we found that we had to drive for a least an hour to practice Yoga in the beautiful, challenging and playful style we had grown accustomed to in Asia-Pacific.

abaYoga became our vision; starting with one, before building several playful classes in community venues across the area, making our blend of Dynamic Flow and Restorative Yoga from across the world accessible to South Croydon and East Surrey.

We’re both deeply passionate about keeping the caring, community feel we have gently cultivated in the church halls and school sports halls of the South Croydon area. We’ll be opening our first studio in the coming months, and transferring this energy into a new-generation Yoga space focused on welcoming all kinds of curious minds.

We hope to see you on the mat, too!

What Our Students Say About Us

What Our Students Say About Us

“Chris is a very knowledgeable teacher and his Thursday classes are brilliant. I’m looking forward to the Saturday class!”

Lisa C.

Oxtead

“I absolutely LOVE your classes! I feel great after, walk taller, and am much more aware of my posture throughout the day at work. I spend my whole week looking forward to Thursdays!”

Nicki R.

Caterham

“I’m six weeks in and loving this class! The atmosphere is great, the people are great, and I feel like I can go at my own pace!”

Sarah W.

Warlingham

“Chris quickly makes everyone feel very welcome and at ease, and while being guided through the moves and positions, he offers demonstrations, provides individual feedback and encouragement; providing each of us with the confidence to explore and gently find our limits.

Chris’ passion for yoga is very apparent and his enthusiasm is infectious. Discovering yoga with him has been the best thing I’ve done this year!”

Tony H.

Sanderstead

“Chris provides a great class! This is my first exercise after having a baby three months ago, and my core muscles were non existent.

With Chris’ encouragement, I felt I could move at my own pace to do the best I could. Chris is an excellent teacher, and I’d recommend AbaYoga to anyone, at any age or ability level.”

Sue L.

Chelsfield

“I didn’t know what to expect from my first yoga class, so I was a little apprehensive. However, I found Chris’ session most enjoyable. It wasn’t too demanding in terms of strength, but my muscles definitely know they’ve been working – especially my calves and thighs. Some very beneficial stretching and positions, especially for the back.

I am hoping to sleep well tonight and I’m already looking forward to next Thursday. A good job well done, Chris!”
