about BoCo

a peaceful space for yoga and pilates

We first met many years ago at a yoga class Maya was teaching. We found we had a shared vision of a perfect yoga environment - a peaceful and dedicated space, not part of a village hall or competitive gym environment, with small classes allowing for individual guidance.

Today at the BoCo studio in Surbiton we are able to share our vision with everyone - from beginners to experts. Our light-filled, serene studio is fully equipped and we've gathered an exceptional team of expert instructors. Our members, some of whom have been with us from the start, discover that the benfits of yoga and pilates go beyond an increase in flexibility and strength. They have found more enrgy and a sense of well-being.

We think we have achieved our vision. Why not come and try it for yourself?

members comment on their BoCo experience

Kirsty Love of Walton on Thames

My Monday night yoga class at BoCo is the one and only class I partake in. I feel truly blessed to have found this studio & also Gaia. Her classes give you the option to explore each pose in their different stages, from beginners to advanced. She is so open, warm & friendly. In Gaia's mindful instructions, I have a new-found confidence in my body - it can do some amazing things! For this I am truly thankful.

Jean Mahrer of Surbiton

At BoCo I am learning to re-connect with my body – to wake-up what has been sleeping as a result of injury and pain and age. I am able to do more, and now dare to expect more of myself. And this is all happening in an atmosphere of quiet confidence. And there is such delight and pleasure in the yoga and with the staff and members I meet.

Kitty Cook of Esher:

The instructors are what I value most at Body Concepts. Though extremely knowledgeable and experienced, their attitude is not one of pressure or judgment but one of guidance and encouragement.  Through their teaching, they convey an awareness of and sensitivity to the fact that we are all different shapes and sizes, and we come to practice yoga (or pilates) for our own individual reasons. As a result, I have never found myself in a class overwhelmed with frustration by what my body cannot do, but overjoyed by discovering and learning what my body can do.

Susan Dick of Oxshott:

Joining BoCo was the best thing I have done this year. Everybody on reception is always cheerful and quick to help. When I began in January I had not practiced for four or five months due to a shoulder injury that wouldn't heal. Maya took me back to basics and very soon my shoulder and practise were improving. By the time Colin returned from India, I was in much better shape to undertake the challenges he presented us with. Colin's teaching has helped me to grow emotionally and physically stronger. His knowledge is extensive and he is very quick to share that with us. My yoga practice has improved no end and I have a different awareness in my practice. It's now not just about getting into the asanas but working with pranayama and learning that the two go hand in hand.

Max, Surbiton

Boco Pilates has transformed my health. After two and a half years, my back problems have gone, my yoga's improved, and my posture is great. I was a bit nervous at first, but Karin, Maya and the team run a lovely studio and are so friendly and welcoming. If it wasn't for Boco, I wouldn't be anywhere near as strong as I am today!

Catherine Mackenzie, Surbiton

Having suffered a serious leg injury a few years ago I wondered how I would manage yoga, but within just 5 minutes of my first class I felt completely at ease. There is never any pressure, just expert guidance and care. Maya is such a wonderful and empowering teacher, a complete gem who treats every person as the individual they are while always radiating something very special to the whole class. She explains the intricacies of breath and the human body in such a clear and meaningful way which takes you on a voyage of discovery – class is so much more than just executing poses. My mobility and strength have improved, and what a joy it has been to feel confident and free to develop in such a safe, caring environment. All the lovely BoCo staff and teachers make it so.

Lisa Saunders of Surbiton:

I absolutely LOVE my Tuesday evening class. I can’t think of one thing that would make a difference, as it’s brilliant already. My teacher is fantastic, and it’s made a real difference to my back, which is definitely stronger since I started the classes.

Tom Jones of Surbiton:

I've had chronic back pain for over three years. I started at BoCo with a gentle Pilates class, which I found excellent, then progressed on to a more active class. At the outset I couldn't even do the active Pilates class because my back was so bad. It's a great compliment to BoCo's programme how good my back generally feels today. Pilates has really been quite transformative for me – I'm delighted to have found it. My back and mobility feel better now than at any time over the past three years.

Michael Banks of Esher:

My experience has been quite remarkable. After a lifetime of sport I was increasingly restricted in my movement by painful stomach muscles and seriously thinking of giving sport up.  I felt a one-to-one session at BoCo was worth a try but was not convinced that the set exercises would correct two years of discomfort. How wrong I was. After only a few days there was great improvement and now, a month later, I have regained mobility and enjoy playing tennis and golf once more
