About Upward Frog Yoga


Upward Frog Yoga started life in the Thames Valley where I was teaching yoga in studios and gyms around Marlow and Maidenhead as a sideline business alongside my conventional career in HR. On returning to Stockport in 2017 and finding that there was nowhere on my doorstep to practice yoga, or many available places to set up classes, I started looking for premises to open my own studio.

Eventually, after about a year of looking and a few false starts and frustrations, the unit on Chestergate was viewed and immediately it felt like home. I drew a line under my previous (27 year) career, took a part time job at Waitrose, and started planning the studio. My vision was to create a non-intimidating, friendly and supportive environment which would be welcoming to both new and experienced yogis, offering courses for beginners, classes for all abilities and special events to help everyone develop a more yogic lifestyle. And all the while, being respective of the ancient traditions of yoga.

The result is Upward Frog Yoga Studio - an unfussy, calm and peaceful space to practice yoga.

The studio opened in January 2019 and we look forward to welcoming you to a class or event.
