ChromaYoga aiming to revolutionise yoga with multi-sensory studio

ChromaYoga has opened a 50sq m (538sq ft) studio that combines colour therapy, soundscapes and bespoke scents with the aim of creating "an immersive, sensory experience" not yet seen before.

The business describes itself as the "UK's only multi-sensory yoga studio", with sessions bathed in colours that affect physical and emotional health. Tones of red, orange, yellow, blue or pink light help instructors guide the class through a set of sequences, designed around the healing properties of that colour.

In collaboration with London scent maker Asakala, ChromaYoga has developed essential oils to correspond with each colour. The scents are used to drive energy, aid breathing, release muscle tension and encourage relaxation.

Sessions are also accompanied by sounds for different states of consciousness.

Classes at the studio in Shoreditch, London, each hold 20 people, with 30 sessions available each week. Each class ranges from £14-£18 (US$17.50-US$22.50, €16.50-€21.20), with five, 10, 15 or 20 class passes available.

Nina Ryner, founder, said: "With this combination of unique ancient practices, ChromaYoga will revolutionise the modern yoga experience.

"Our classes combine monochromatic light, soundscapes and bespoke scent which have been designed to improve physical and emotional health. We use current research into the ways in which light can be utilised to improve sleep quality and mood, increase energy and aid muscle recovery.

"Our soundscapes include frequencies designed to induce a relaxed, lucid state and when combined with our bespoke scents, this trinity of sensory experiences creates a revolutionary approach to the modern yoga practice not yet seen before."

As an operator, you need to pick your price point and do what you can for that, but do it really well. We have great quality facilities, but what we offer isn’t luxury

In London, people are familiar with the boutique concept, but elsewhere it’s still relatively new, so initially it was a challenge to educate people in Manchester about our benefits, when they were used to paying budget club prices

The capitalist model may create wealth in the short term, but if it doesn’t address the broader issue of serving society, it risks losing its licence to operate. If inequality grows, that might force more difficult change

You can do lots of great stuff, but find there are still large numbers of people who don’t engage. If you can start to understand why, then you’re onto something
People
I’ve always felt uncomfortable with the idea that membership of a full-service club might cost £60 a month, but a personal trainer will watch you do press-ups for an hour and also charge £60. One of those two numbers is wrong and I think the boutique industry will expose that

As long as people do the 30-minute circuit, twice a week, they are guaranteed results, and that’s a simple message to get across
