welcome to the yoga house

We are a cosy yoga studio in the heart of Crossgates, we are proud to be one of the first yoga studios in the up and coming East Leeds area! Our aim is to build a down to earth, supportive yoga community, where everyone feels at home. We offer a variety of classes, courses and workshops to help you move, breathe and relax. Spend some time unwinding in our cosy space, sipping tea, meeting other likeminded yogis and getting away from the hustle and bustle of life.

Coming from a gymnastics and dance background, Freya found Vinyasa Flow yoga in her early 20’s and fell in love with the practice. Not only did this style of yoga allow her to keep up her physical strength and flexibility, but the synchronicity of movement to breath and the meditation aspect also helped her personally. After gaining a degree in Event and Business management at University, Freya worked at St Gemma’s Hospice for two years as an Events Fundraiser. During this time she realised office work wasn’t for her and decided to take a year out to go travelling and do her yoga teacher training. She is now qualified in Vinyasa Flow, Restorative and Children’s yoga and teaches a range of classes for all ages and abilities. Freya also teaches yoga to people living with cancer at the Maggies cancer centre in Leeds and is passionate about bringing the benefits of yoga to those who need it most.

the yoga house story

From living with a close family member with a chronic pain condition and witnessing first-hand how much yoga, tai chi, breathwork and meditation helped to reduce this pain, Freya realised just how beneficial and healing these holistic practices were. During this time Freya found her passion for yoga and realised she wanted to open a yoga studio to help others feel the benefits she and her family had felt from the practice, and so The Yoga House was born! It was important to Freya that the studio was in East Leeds as yoga was predominantly available in North Leeds, and she has made it her mission to create a yoga community in Crossgates!
