Last week I received an email with invitation to Total Chi Yoga Bar, I was curious to see that place, as I’ve never been to a truly Yoga Studio, and classes at my gym are not counted. The place wasn’t open for the public, yet, so I was given an opportunity to be one of the first ones to try and see it.
First impression – sleek, airy design and absolutely amazing location – minutes walk from Regent Park and Baker St. tube station. From the outside, the Total Chi looks more like a cafe, which is also true – you can visit this place if you are looking for some truly healthy freshly pressed juices or smoothies (I tired the carrot and cinnamon one – it’s delicious!). If super hydration is what you’re after, Total Chi is one of the first London cafes to offer Birch and Maple Water as well as an assortment of Mylks including oat, almond, soya and lactose-free.
When you are coming here for a class, you need to make sure to check yourself in by using this small in-built tablet at the wall. Once you are checked-in, you will need to take off your shoes and go downstairs to the lockers room.
Lockers room is stunning, it has super secured pin-coded lockers, luxurious rain showers with Malin & Goetz products and embroidered crisp towels.
Next to the lockers room, you will find the lounge area where you can wait for your class to begin, there are also 2 studios and a pretty backyard.
The overall experience I has at Total Chi London was amazing, the staff is super welcoming and as it’s a family-run business, the owner is super sweet and you can really say that she loves what she is doing and put a great amount of her soul into every detail of the studio.
The class I had is called Restorative Pilates, it lasted 1 hour and even though there were not many strength exercises, I certainly felt pleasant tension in my body after the session. I’m planning to return and to try one of their Warm Yoga classes – both of the studios are equipped for the warm classes and as I’ve never tried this before, Total Chi Yoga Studio is definitely the place where I want to give it a go.
Total Chi doesn’t offer memberships, and you can only buy classes in bundles or separately. All of the information about the prices and classes, you will be able to find at their website: http://totalchi.com
At the moment they are running a promotion, when you get your second class for free, which means you are buying 2 classes for the price of one.
I really hope this review was helpful for some of the Londoners 😉
