Chloe started running in 2002, and in 2003 she ran the Paris Marathon which was a baptism of fire! It was during her self-confessed ‘rather sketchy’ marathon training in 2003 that she started practicing yoga. She had genuinely resigned herself to being a stiff person and hadn’t realised at all that over a long period of time her body was capable of adapting and becoming more flexible. Yoga is genuinely amazing for runners, but running isn’t particularly great for yoga! Fast forward to 2012 and her husband had taken up running – he’d caught the running bug. Together they’ve entered into the Two Rivers Marathon in February 2020 as their qualifier for the Comrado Ultra in June
Yogarise is your local, urban yoga studio. We opened our doors in 2014 in Peckham Rye’s Bussey Building, bringing some of London’s top teachers to Peckham and offering a wide range of classes at affordable prices every day of the week. Since then, we’ve opened studios in Streatham and Covent Garden too. Given the current Coronavirus pandemic, we've closed our doors but that hasn't stopped us! We're running live streamed yoga and pilates classes daily direct to your living room. Our aim is to get as many people as possible breathing, moving and Yogarising – yes, it sounds cheesy but we don’t care! Yoga makes you feel good (officially) and we want to share some of that around. We work with community partners to bring yoga and mindfulness into local schools and to convey the positive message that yoga really is for everybody. So, whether you’re a complete beginner or master yogi, are into meditation or fitness, come along and see what Yogarise is all about.
