The Flying Yogi: Kasia Poremna tells us why she is passionate about the joys of teaching yoga in W12

The Flying Yogi is a boutique yoga and Pilates studio that recently landed on Goldhawk Road. Owner and local resident Kasia Poremna tells us why she is passionate about the joys of teaching yoga in W12

You were an architect and interior designer. Why the transition to yoga?
Twelve years ago I was suffering from back injury and stress but didn’t know why. A friend practised yoga and invited me to a class. I went along and felt positive results immediately. I realised my working life was out of balance and making me unhappy so I decided to spend time taking care of myself with yoga. My body became stronger and started to heal and my stress levels fell away to the point I could sleep soundly again. That was such a relief. I discovered yoga was the right thing for me and decided to be a yoga teacher.

What can locals expect when they visit?
A warm hello and cup of herbal tea while you take off your shoes. We want you to feel comfortable and to familiarise yourself with our large new yoga studio. We offer Pilates and various yoga styles as well as warm yoga classes. The ceiling has infrared panels that radiate gentle heat. Six teachers offer a range of classes from beginner groups to yinyasa flow sessions for the more experienced. We have pregnancy yoga and mum and baby classes. We can help you relax or challenge you with something new. Ask about our gong bath! All are welcome –men and women, young and old.

About Editor

The company publishes four flagship magazines (Chelsea Locals, Chiswick Locals, Richmond Locals and Hammersmith Locals) with more launches planned in London and across the UK. The prime focus of each of these quarterly magazines is to showcase and support the independent traders and small businesses who do so much to give these areas their individual retail character and community spirit. This is achieved through dedicated advertorials which are written, designed and photographed by an experienced team lead by Neil McKelvie.

In every issue, these advertorials are complemented by feature articles which turn the spotlight on different aspects of neighbourhood life and interviews with notable local figures.In addition to appearing in the magazines, every advertorial is also published in the Keep Things Local newsletters, on the website and on social media. Get in touch to be featured in our Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring issues.
