This May we would like to spread a sense of self compassion and compassion for others through the meditation of Loving Kindness.
You may see real transformation throughout May by committing to a daily (or thereabouts) practice of sending Loving Kindness to yourself and those around you, via your yoga and meditation practice…. at the very least, you may be in with a chance to win some great Battersea Yoga prizes!
What is the May Challenge?


During the 31 days of May, challenge yourself to attend a meditation or yoga class for at least 20 days, or multiple classes over fewer days.

Everyone who comes to 20 or more classes will be entered into the prize draw to win one of the wonderful incentives above.

To help you make the most May, purchase a month’s unlimited class pass for only £110 (saving £38 on a months unlimited pass, and saving a massive £140 on a 20 class pass!)



Metta Bhavana or Loving Kindness Meditation


Come along to Angus’s class on Wednesday 3 May for full guided meditation and explanation about the different stages of the loving kindness meditation.


This practice is intended to cultivate friendliness, understanding, compassion and loving kindness.

It can help to resolve conflict, towards ourselves, as well as others. This meditation helps us to overcome anger, resentment, and hurt.

It helps us to empathize more, and to be more considerate, kind, and forgiving. We can also learn to appreciate others more, concentrating more on their positive qualities and less on their faults. We learn to be more patient.


May I be happy. May I be well. May I be safe.

May I be peaceful and at ease.

May you be happy. May you be well. May you be safe.

May you be peaceful and at ease.

Incentives for your commitment (a.k.a. prizes):


Private 1-2-1 yoga class with Emma
