Akram Yoga Studio opened its doors in Woking in early 2013 with a clear vision in mind. Our primary goal was to create a hot yoga studio where students like yourself would leave a class discussing the transformative power of yoga before even mentioning the heat.

In that same year, our owner Zahir Akram and senior alliance teacher Christine Felix made a decision based on popular demand. They initiated a teaching course, initially thinking it would be a one-time occurrence. However, the overwhelming response and positive feedback propelled them forward, and for almost 11 years, we have successfully conducted this program annually.

Sadly, in 2020, we experienced the loss of Christine Felix. Nonetheless, her impactful legacy continues to inspire and guide us. In our upcoming teacher training program, we are excited to include Laura Akram, Zahir's wife, a qualified yoga teacher and yoga therapist, along with the expertise of senior alliance teacher Paull Allen.

Our mission is not to impose any particular dogma upon you. Instead, we strive to equip you with all the necessary tools to become a thriving yoga teacher. Throughout the program, you will gain comprehensive knowledge, from static hatha yoga to dynamic vinyasa flow and even teaching techniques in a heated room.

At Akram Yoga, we aim to empower you as a teacher and provide an enriching learning experience. We believe in cultivating a nurturing environment where kindness and growth go hand in hand.

We hope you will join us in continuing to share the magic of Yoga.

Warm regards,

The Akram Yoga Team
