He is known for his fun, uplifting style of Ashtanga vinyasa-krama.

Student Testimonials

“Aram’s calm, uplifting classes are definitely the best yoga sessions I’ve come across in London. As a beginner, I appreciate how he makes people of all levels feel really welcome and comfortable, and yet manages to challenge even the more experienced members of the class. His thorough knowledge of yoga makes each class interesting and I particularly love the relaxation sessions at the end! I’d heartily recommend him as a fantastic teacher.

Aram Raffy you are London’s ULTIMATE yoga teacher!.”

“I really enjoyed the emphasis he put on the breath. So few yoga classes I’ve been to even touch on breathing technique. Amazing deep relaxation at the end too. I felt wonderful! Thanks Aram”
