The Painted Barn Studio

It’s easier to hold a pose while gazing out from our Studio across the beautiful Norfolk countryside.

We would like to introduce you to our new open sided Shala studio space and for the time being we will be using this large airy space rather than our original studio for Yoga and Pilates classes. Now that the rules have changed our Yoga and Pilates classes will be allowed start up again. We have undertaken a Covid risk assessment and for everybody’s safety we have some rules in place for the new Shala studio space. Everyone attending will have a designated space and will be at least 3 metres apart. We apologise for doves and pigeons flying through! Our hope is to be back in our beautiful original studio soon. For now we feel very happy to welcome you to the Shala studio.
