Studio One was opened in 2014 by Michelle Almond, a yoga teacher of 12 years who has taught everywhere! Michelle moved to Standish in 2008 and started teaching classes at Standish High School, Mossy Lea Village Hall and many more. Alongside this she was completing a PhD with the eventual aim of becoming a lecturer. However, over the years the classes grew and were in such high demand that she was outgrowing any community spaces available.Read More

Our Strong Series is a 5-week course designed to take you on a journey through a particular aspect of the practice that can be somewhat challenging and difficult to look at in detail in a regular flow class. Each week is a 75-minute class built in layers to take you from A to B in a formulaic way; we’ll deconstruct the movement, study the anatomy and spice up your practice.Read More
When the workplace come to yoga!
We have lots of ‘groups’ of people coming to yoga together, friends from work, college and home but very few who take the time out during work hours as a team to make their workplace stand out!
This company are proving that team work really does make the dream work!Read More
Our yoga community is all about being inclusive and accepting of everybody which means we have cultivated a band of students who are not necessarily ‘typically yoga’!
So if you come to our studio, if you make friends with our students you’ll be sure to find a few exceptions to the yoga ‘rule’; our crazy Front of House team (Harriet), our beer monster of a student (Valerie) and a past teacher who simply can’t miss our nights out (Sarah)!Read More
I come from a super small family, but my parents made up for it with the most awesome, magical Christmases. I know most families have rituals and things they get the kids to do on the run up to the big day but my mum and dad were great at this; there were trails and maps and games to find our presents around the house, these got more elaborate every year and I’m quite sure it’s because my dad got a chance to legit be a child for a couple of days! It was so believable and awesome that my brother still believed in Santa when he went to High School, much to our amusement (sorry Michael).Read More
Back in 2014 we started with one class a week on the timetable, within a year we’d added a second and we have now reached the amazing goal of a THIRD class hitting the schedule. January 2019 will see the total number of Over 60’s classes at our Standish studio hit 3 per week with Kim guiding these groups through 75 minutes of stretching, strength and laughter.
If you’ve ever had the pleasure of being around on a Tuesday or Thursday morning you’ll see how much of an impact these classes are having;Read More
The whole period has become such a rush to get things done on time, to see all the people and we forget about our own needs so if you’re one of those people looking to escape the madness and mayhem for an hour don’t worry….Read More
If you want to start something new in January, start researching it NOW!...sign yourself up and put it in your diary. Why? Because we end up spending the first week of January trying to get our shit together to actually put these ‘goals’ in motion and before you know it January’s over, you’re nowhere near your target, you didn’t start the new thing and bang...it’s June again and you’re waiting til January 2020 to start again!Read More
The brain cannot follow the sounds as no rhythm is made by the bowls and gongs, so the brain waves switch from beta state (awake, alert, problem solving) into alpha state (daydreaming, relaxed, imagination), to theta (meditation, dreaming).Read More
This weekend we’ve been spoiled in that way..…Faith Hunter showed up all soul and Louisiana charm and….well, charmed the pants off everyone! The studio was a hive of energy and positivity and it was a pleasure to witness; if you missed out then I urge you to try a workshop in the future.Read More
If you’re anything like me you probably don’t need another Lush bath bomb or ‘Quote a Day’ calendar for 2019 and asking for anything else seems strange, materialistic almost. Well don’t worry we’ve got your back…Read More
The beauty is that you get to choose what you would like from each session by setting an intention at the start of every practice. So if you’re feeling sluggish, you can set an intention around enhanced energy and vitality; if you’re feeling tired, you can choose to find deep rest.Read More
Ok, so I want you to think of MEDITATION as an all-encompassing term for various ways in which you can find connection, calm and concentration. There are lots of types of meditation from silent to breath focused to guided. And then there’s MINDFULNESS; simply put, mindfulness is a TYPE of meditation!Read More
Because today is World Mental Health Day and it’s a day we use to check in with our ethos every year. We look at what we are doing for our own mental health, what we could do better and, more importantly, how we could help others.Read More
Every one of us has a pose or poses that will forever and always be unattainable, whether that’s due to injury, other sports played or skeletal make up. So whilst you’re sat happily in Baddha Konasana thinking ‘this is easy’ think about the person whose knees are touching their eyeballs; earlier that same person might have held a forearm stand for 2 breaths whilst your feet remain weighted to the ground in that pose.Read More
This is also the perfect time to set some intentions for what you would like to see happen in your life over this magical season, what do you want this new season to bring for you? There is HUGE power in intentions, so set one! Plant some inner seeds today that you can nurture and nourish over the hibernating months of winter, so by the time spring comes you are ready to blossom back out into the world!Read More

We are a family of climbers and skiers/snowboarders, so as we’re approaching a trip at home or abroad we tend to change up our practice a little to prepare our bodies with a little more focus. Our yoga poses for climbing are super simple and we add them to our regular practice along with some viloma pranayama (breathing) practice. More on this later!Read More
We love getting positive, glowing reports on our teachers and classes, seriously nothing lights us up more. We’d love for you to get comfortable telling us when something doesn’t quite work or where we could have tried harder; whatever it is we want to know. Otherwise we’re going to go through life thinking we’re bloody wonderful when let’s face it, every now and then we could do to up our game.Read More
