what the press say about inner axis

More than simply being accessible, Inner Axis is actually essential, in my opinion (and I have tried pretty much every yoga style going). It is specifically aimed at a combatting the stresses of modern life – anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, burnout – helping us to function at a higher level at work and in our relationships.

Victoria Woodhall, Get the Gloss, September 2016.

Max Strom is a teacher who has written two books and given three TEDx talks. However, he struggled for many years to embrace his role as a teacher, due to feelings of low self-esteem and unworthiness that stemmed from his childhood. He eventually overcame these challenges through inner work, including breathwork, meditation, and writing. He now believes that everyone has something valuable to offer, and that we can all learn to understand and love ourselves.

Some people wear baggy, loose fitting bottoms and a t-shirt. Other people wear tight stretchy leggings and tops. The only thing that matters is that you wear comfortable clothes that you can easily move and stretch in.

As you move through a class you can get warm so it’s good to wear clothes that keep you cool, but bring a jumper for relaxation, when the body rapidly cools down. Some people also bring socks for the relaxation phase.

In triyoga hot, dynamic and ashtanga classes you will get sweaty and some people like to bring a small towel to class.

We provide mats and all other equipment you may need at all our centres. We also regularly clean our mats and equipment. If you would like to purchase your own mat we sell a varied selection in our shops at each centre.

If you are a new to triyoga and have not already registered for an account, please arrive 20 minutes early for your first session to allow time for registration.

If you are a regular student and have booked classes online, we ask that you arrive at least 10 minutes before the class starts so you have plenty of time to sign-in and get settled. Otherwise, for busy classes, if you have booked but not shown up 5 minutes before the class, we might need to allocate your spot to our wait list. If you need to cancel your booking, please do so at least 3 hours before the class otherwise our late cancellation policy will apply.

We realise lateness is often unavoidable but to avoid disruption, we cannot allow latecomers into class 10 minutes after it has started. For hot classes, we cannot allow anybody into the room once it has started due to the importance of the warm up postures.

Yes, there is a triyoga studio etiquette guide. This is on display in all our centres and you can read the full triyoga etiquette guide here.

We understand that cancellations are sometimes unavoidable – but cancelling late or not attending at all often stops other students from booking places in that class. Click here to view our cancellation policy. 

The aim of our cancellation policy aim is to improve the triyoga experience for everyone and make it easier for all students to be able to attend the classes they want to.
