Our story

Our journey was inspired by Michelle, who was struggling to keep up with a demanding career in London alongside maintaining some form of work-life balance. Things quickly became exhausting and she started looking for an outlet for her stresses. She was never a fan of the gym, but quickly fell in love with yoga after stepping into her first class several years ago.

It was then that she realised the need for a place where anyone could come in and take time for themselves. And so The Nook Urban Retreat was born – a space of calm and wellness for busy modern lives.


Our space

We set out to create a space that is beautiful, cosy and inviting. Every aspect of The Nook Urban Retreat is carefully considered, from the Scandinavian infused design to the natural elements that come together in a minimal fashion. Our studios are designed to ease you into a state of calm – we limit the size of our classes to no more than 18 mats so you have space to stretch with minimal distractions.
