Balham Yoga Classes
Hannah Pocket is an approachable, lighthearted and down to earth person. Who is passionate about the positive impact a regular yoga practice can have on your body and mind.
Hannah believes yoga should be accessible for everyone, so her Hatha Vinyasa Flow classes in Balham have a friendly community feel and are open to all levels. Different options are given throughout each yoga class, to suit all levels of strength and flexibility. Every body welcome.
Hannah's Yin and Nidra classes are live-streamed so you can join her Monday Night Bedtime Ritual from the comfort of your own home. A space to wind down in preparation for an amazing nights sleep.
Private yoga classes are tailored to individual needs.
Hannah teaches a playful form of Hatha Vinyasa Flow. This style merges two popular forms of modern yoga and doesn’t take itself too seriously!
Hatha yoga, usually involves holding still poses for several breaths. An opportunity to refine alignment, engage muscles and find your edge - building strength and flexibility.
Vinyasa yoga, is more dynamic and focuses on moving the body in time with the breath. Build up a sweat, and loose yourself in the meditative flow as you move from one posture to the next.
Expect a different, intelligently designed, sequence in each class. Delivered with precise anatomical alignment cues, so you can develop a strong, safe, yoga practice.
Yin yoga is a soft, slow and meditative practice - with a focus on stillness and breath. Each week a different series of floor based stretches will invite your body to open and relax as we gently sink into our connective tissue and fascia, dissolving hidden areas of tension.
Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation that leads the body and mind into a deep state of relaxation.

Hannah's yoga classes are really enjoyable, she has a very clear and calming voice. There is a great variety for each class with plenty of options for the less mobile/experienced students like myself. I always feel in a good place after the Balham yoga class and recommend Hannah highly.
Hannah has a unique ability to teach yoga to all levels of ability and all ages. So often Women in their 40's and 50's know that the practice can help build strength, flexibility and relaxation but are put off by joining classes full of yoga experts and teachers who have an homogenous approach. Hannah is a strong communicator, has patience and offers a bespoke teaching experience for private clients that helps clients celebrate incremental gains, therefore building confidence and strength. I have no hesitation in recommending Hannah's yoga classes and private tuition.
Hannah's Balham class is what got me interested in Yoga! I'd been to a few classes before but wasn't gripped, then I went to a class with Hannah and really enjoyed it. Now I go every week, and I've learnt so much. Hannah's great at explaining everything and each week is varied, which keeps it fun and interesting! I felt very comfortable from the first class.
The Autumn day retreat venue was literally stunning, and was so nice to get out of London for a day. I'm still on such a high from such a lovely day spent with a wonderful group of people. I can't recommend this yoga retreat enough.
Hannah's day retreat was absolutely incredible and a very special experience. There was no detail that wasn't thought of. The yoga itself was brilliant, and the added meditation, readings and gratitude sections at the end were perfect. The ambience was magical and I can't wait for the opportunity to take family and friends along to one of Hannah's yoga retreats in the future.
I’ve tried yoga a few times in the past and have never really enjoyed it, but Hannah makes all the poses really easy to understand and brings awesome energy to the sessions - I love it!! Great work Hannah, I’m a yoga convert!!
I’ve been practising yoga for many years and have enjoyed Hannah's enthusiasm and fresh approach. She creates a lovely class atmosphere and makes everyone feel welcome and comfortable, whatever the level of their practice. Her local Balham classes are just the right balance between challenging and calming. I highly recommend Hannah to yogis everywhere.
The yoga retreat was a great chance to get away from the non stop hustle of London and to take some time out to recharge through both energetic and relaxing yoga flows. Hannah is very welcoming and the small group makes the atmosphere feel very friendly. The Yoga Garden yurt and Knepp Rewilding Project location were both beautiful, and the food was delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and left already planning when I was going to come back!
