Henham Yoga Studio – about us
Hello and thank you for stopping by. I’d like to explain a bit about our yoga studio and what we do here.
My husband Hektor & I undertook the renovation of the Henham Barns in 2015, transforming what was a derelict storage barn into a beautiful space for events and weddings. The yoga studio was created above the kitchen and bar space, and was purpose built. Being a yoga teacher, I knew exactly what we needed to prioritise to make it the best possible space to practice yoga in.
However, this is not quite as it sounds – Hektor built the yoga studio for me and it was finished way sooner than I anticipated! Mentally and physically (I’d just had my first baby), I was nowhere near ready to take on ownership of an amazing new yoga studio. I was too worried about not doing it justice. It has taken a year and a half of putting the finishing touches to the space, purchase yoga props and hosting yoga events before I decided to host classes at Henham Yoga Studio.
When you arrive at the studio, there is space downstairs to leave your shoes and a loo on the way up which is available for use during class. The fragrance of incense or essential oils scents the room. There are twenty dimmable downlighters in the ceiling to provide light, and atmosphere is created from electric candles and the Suffolk red bricks visible in one corner beneath twinkling fairy lights. Sonos speakers provide bass to the music used during class, and four original windows provide light and views to the parkland outside.
We hope we have created a beautiful space for you to feel welcome to come and practice yoga with us. Newcomers or advanced yogis, it does not matter as yoga is non-competitive and all levels are catered for. Mats and props are available for complementary use. Props include buckwheat bolsters, local hand made lavender eye pillows, extra long straps and blocks.
