Body Shop Yoga and the Instructors

As Leeds first yoga studio, Body Shop Yoga has been offering classes to the community since Feb 2015.  The studio is located in the old Ryan Automotive building which has been in founder, Beth Ryan’s, family for generations. With the help of many close friends, Beth gradually transformed the studio into a serene space to practice yoga. Collaboration with Julie Waters, BSY instructor and wellness expert, further established the studio as a space for students to grow both mentally and physically. Currently, the studio offers a variety of yoga classes, instructors and wellness experiences. Keep up to date on current offerings by checking the schedule here and follow us on Facebook at Body Shop Yoga Leeds.
