In true yogi style, we have matched the concept of the seven chakras of the body to giving you Liverpool's seven best spots to test out your yoga skills.

Yoga, meditation and mindfulness have become an everyday conversation topic. With more and more popularity over the past couple of years, the industry continues to grow with each and every Ujjayi breath.

Although yoga is seen to be pretty cool right now, the practice of yoga is reported to go back about 5000 years. Yoga is said to have multiple benefits, improving the mind, body and soul.

Yoga is not discriminative; the practice of yoga is accessible to men and women regardless of age and physical ability. It is said that yoga can be revitalising, restorative and rejuvenating. The series of poses can apparently prevent and combat sports injuries, including back, neck and shoulder pain.

The practice can encourage weight loss, fitness and stamina whilst improving mental focus. The breathing techniques and nature of the exercise is suggested to prevent the development of depression, insomnia, anxiety and stress.

So, it's no surprise that yoga studios are popping up all over the city and we don't want you to miss out on the hype. We've narrowed down the lists to give you an insight in to the top studios you should be visiting to fight some of those autumn blues.
