Amazing Spaces: Hum Yoga + Meditation

Welcome to Hum Yoga + Meditation, your sanctuary situated in the heart of London City Island—a locale so unique it has earned the nickname ‘Mini Manhattan’. Surrounded by waterways and lush greenery, but still incredibly close to Central London, Hum epitomises the best of both urban and natural worlds. This isn’t just about having a studio in a special place; it’s an invitation to a lifestyle that harmoniously blends wellness, community, and modern convenience.

Meet Oriana Shepherd, the studio’s insightful founder. Her Welsh Italian heritage aligns with the studio’s multicultural community. Trained by Tara Stiles at Strala Yoga in New York, she channels that metropolitan vibe, offering East London a haven where members can unplug, relax and recharge. What sets Hum apart? Variety is the spice of life here. The studio not only offers a wide array of yoga and Pilates classes but also enriching events like soundbaths, mindfulness workshops and even a monthly book club focusing on wellness literature. Once a month members are offered the chance to experience sunrise over the city with Hum’s Yoga in the Sky, a practice 29 floors up on a viewing platform overlooking Canary Wharf and the City (weather permitting).

Moreover, the studio wears its heart on its sleeve by volunteering and offering donation-based classes, with proceeds going to support a local homeless charity. Hum celebrates diversity, boasting an active membership from over 30 countries, reflecting the eclectic tapestry of London’s vibrant, multicultural population, so whether you’re a yoga novice or a seasoned pro, there’s a class for your level, led by a certified instructor who resonates with you.
