Our Story

Who are Studio One Yoga?

Our mission at Studio One Yoga is to support the physical health and well being of people in our local communities by providing yoga that is affordable and accessible for all ages and levels of ability. 

We aim to do this by employing the best possible team of teachers and staff, and creating a modern studio environment that is always welcoming, clean and safe for people to be themselves.

Beyond our regular studio classes we look to work with like-minded people and organisations that can help create alternative offerings that are exciting, unique and allow our students to have new experiences.


How did it come to be?

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.

The opportunity presented itself in the form of our building on the High Street and Studio One was born!

After a successful spell of 4 years at Standish, it was time for another challenge and a return to her home town…Leyland. Once again, an opportunity presented itself and in March 2018 Studio One Leyland opened its doors.


What are our future plans?

Who knows?! The honest answer is that we don’t know…we continue to work hard and provide a service that is second to none with goals in sight for both of our studios. But beyond that we are an organic business who will stay ahead of the curve to provide yoga for all.

We have developed great relationships with international yoga teachers to enable us to offer some exciting workshops for our students and we look forward to launching our retreat really soon!

We have some exciting plans for 2019 which we’ll share more about as the weeks go by but for now wait and see….
