Meeta has been teaching Yoga classes in Southampton since 2001

Growing up in the Indian community in Dar-es-Salaam, Meeta has Yoga in her blood

After emigrating to Southampton, Meeta decided to follow her heart and teach what she loved. She trained with FRYOG to gain her qualification then taught at various venues around the city, soon gaining a regular following of yogis. As her own style developed, she opened her own studio and has since taught many hundreds of yogis.

Meeta's classes are exceptional in that they are invested with a rare spirituality. While her classes are challenging and dynamic, there is a depth to them which makes them wholly unique. Her classes are creative and stimulating both mentally and physically and she always has time and encouragement for each and every individual.

The atmosphere which has developed in her studio is warm and friendly, akin to a family

What can yoga with Meeta do for you?

What feels impossible or out of reach is different for everyone. What is it for you?

Are you seeking a sense of inner peace and happiness? Increased strength and flexibility? Better posture?

All of those things, and more, are possible when you join Meeta and your fellow yogis on the mat.

'Pain is just a sensation...'

You'll hear Meeta say this in a typical yoga class. What does it mean... and what else can you expect from one of her classes?

First of all, do not be put off by this! Yoga is not just a workout for the body; it's for your mind and spirit too. When you're holding a pose and ready to give up, hearing the phrase 'Pain is just a sensation' gives you permission to find your edge, to push yourself just a little harder and dive a little deeper than you did before*.

In Meeta's classes you can expect:

  • encouragement and personal attention from Meeta; her style is to get to know each individual to help them on their journey
  • to experience a unique spiritual yet energetic atmosphere in each class
  • to feel your core strength, flexibility, stamina and sense of overall well-being improve
  • a challenge that suits your level of ability and experience
  • to emerge with a sense of accomplishment

*But always listen to your body!

Meeta's amazing repertoire of styles

No matter how many years you practise regularly under Meeta's guidance - she always gives something new!

Meeta's Indian, East African, UK, Hindu cultural history has created a unique individual with the most wonderful approach to the World and to her teaching.

Her yogis love her not only because she is the most natural and authentic teacher of yoga, but also for the person she is.

Meeta teaches a dynamic, physical yoga class that can help you lose weight, improve bad posture and address respiratory issues such as asthma. Appropriate for both beginner and advanced yoga practitioners, her style of yoga is great for strengthening the physical body, creating flexibility in the limbs, regulating hormones and increasing energy levels. Many people also experience improved concentration and a sense of inner peace from the classes.

Classes at Meeta's Pentire Avenue studio

A beautiful sanctuary for her yogis to practise

In 2005, Meeta set up her own beautiful custom-built, fully equipped studio adjacent to her home in Upper Shirley (just a 5-minute walk from Southampton Common).

This peaceful, intimate space is the perfect haven, where a small number of yogis can come and shut out the outside world. Take to your mat in Meeta's studio, and concentrate on your personal journey.

During normal classes there is limited time to explore postures and students do not have the opportunity to practice long holds in different postures.

Our workshops offer an excellent opportunity to explore postures in greater detail and give everyone a chance to socialise afterwards. Remember pain is only a sensation! If you want to open your body, you need to engage in long holds.

Our next workshop ('Lunge into Freedom') is scheduled for Friday, 3 November.

See Meeta's Workshops Page for all the details.

What do you need?

.. just follow your heart


  • an hour of your day to channel your energies, and enjoy some well-deserved 'me' time
  • a nice grippy mat (best to bring your own but Meeta can provide)
  • comfy clothing
  • maybe some water for the more intense classes, like Core or Hot Yoga
  • to free yourself from judgement - age, weight, flexibility and physique are no barriers here
  • to listen to your body - if you need to modify the postures so you're getting the most out of them, grab a block or two at the studio, or bring your own!


  • any previous experience
  • to be naturally bendy or on a particular diet
  • fancy gear - but if you have it, you're free to wear/bring it!
