the Story Behind whitespace

Whitespace opened its studio doors on the 30th October, 2010. The studio was the culmination and realisation of our founder, Deborah Berryman’s, vision: for everyone to experience and grow through mind-body practices, in a safe, warm, friendly and non-judgmental environment – regardless of age, size, gender, fitness, diet and lifestyle.

our studio team

Deborah

Founder & Director
I’m a London run away who hides out in a tiny village in the country, having left behind a successful (and sometimes exhausting) corporate career.

Yoga, movement & meditation has had such a positive impact in my life, and I’ve spent the last 15 years on a personal mission to share the benefits of these wellbeing practices with others.

I love our community here at Whitespace – such a kind bunch of down-to-earth people, doing their best to find connection, peace and a little sweetness in a sometimes frantic world. Seeing these people ‘light-up’ about their life again is what gives me the most joy.

I try to get to classes here often (I LOVE our teachers!), recently exploring Somatics which has been a joyful way to slow down.

I bring a steady presence to the studio, helping to hold our vision at heart and make sense out of what can sometimes feel like chaos. All fuelled by a delicious pot of ‘nuclear green’ home-made soup for lunch (kale, spinach, carrot, leek and cumin if you’re interested!)

Oliver

Studio Manager
After years co-owning a motorsport business, I decided to take my hands-off to add life “contrast” … and I couldn’t have landed with a more delightful team!
I’ve been increasingly appreciating everything that is “Whitespace” and its continual motivation to develop and attune the WS experience for its students. I’m excited to see the studio grow, flourish and continue to welcome more students through its doors to improve their health and happiness.

You’ll occasionally find me in a deep relaxation class, on short walks around the grounds, or faffing around with my motorcycle gear in the carpark.

Nina

Assistant Studio Manager
I first came to the Studio on Open Day in 2010 - from working 1 hour per day in exchange for 1 yoga class to becoming

my full-time job! This really is my second home - I’m either behind the desk, in the office or on my mat, I love working AND practicing here (& often drag the hubby here too!).

I’m here to ensure everything runs smoothly and support our members along the way (which is just the most fab part of the job). I’m mum to 2 awesome teenage boys and work hard to cultivate the qualities I learn on my mat into my life.

Anna

Scheduling Manager
I was a student at Whitespace during my pregnancy and here every week for the baby classes (and tea) once my son was born . . . when my maternity leave was over, I started to work here!

Before Whitespace I’d been conditioned as a project manager – I love a list, I love to be busy, and I have a thirst for just ‘getting-things-done’ . . . yoga has been teaching me how to listen to myself,

adjust the pace and find that sustainable balance that prevents illness and burn-out. I’m learning that Life’s a marathon, Not a sprint.

Natalja

Office Administrator
I joined Whitespace in summer 2017 after working a busy London job for almost a decade. Since starting my new yoga journey, like many, I also completed the Introduction to Yoga course and fell in love (with the practice, not with the instructor😊) and have been regularly attending classes ever since feeling the benefits.

My favourite class is Flow – energising and strengthening, teaching your body to “speak” and a wondering mind to be quiet. You won’t see me too often as I spend most of the time in the “tower”, but occasionally, if you hear a slight accent at front desk – it’s usually me saying hi and checking you in for a class. I love being a part of this small but truly amazing team and I hope they appreciate my fun-loving personality and my dry, unique sense of humour!

Jemma

Customer Sales & Wellbeing Advisor
In the autumn of 2017, I looked at trying some classes here at Whitespace and ended up finding a dream job instead! My friends and family joked that only I could find a job where I can wear my pyjamas and no shoes to work.

I’ve now been practicing Yoga for 10 years and there’s still so much more to learn. My favourite classes are slow, stretchy Yoga Flows or Deep Relaxation (aka powernap time for me).

My favourite part of working here is most definitely chatting to all the lovely students and seeing everyone progress on their yoga journey.

Sherree

Studio Assistant
My favourite way to spend time is being with family and friends, Yoga – teaching and practising, being outside in the company of trees, flowers and wildlife, foraging, gardening, watching any form of dance, live music. I enjoy being part of a wonderful Community, the hugs, the smiles, the friendships, the classes, the teachers, seeing the sparkle and smiles from students especially after class. Yoga has taught me its a wonderful journey which will be with me always, that it is ok to ‘just be’ on my mat and there is always so much more to learn.

Heather

Studio Assistant
I joined Whitespace in 2015 after practicing here for about a year. I was immediately drawn in by the warm and friendly atmosphere in the studio and it’s been a joy to be part of that since! The best part of being a studio assistant is getting to chat to our lovely students and teachers and being able to continue my own practice surrounded by friendly faces.

My favourite memory from working here was going to see all of the incredible work they do at The Winter Night Shelter after we’d raised money for them at our film night a couple of years ago, it made me really proud to be part of a team that makes a difference to so many people in so many different ways.

Albert

Teacher Training Assistant
I’ve been assisting with Whitespace teacher courses ever since finding this wonderful, friendly and humerus team.
They’re no skeleton crew, but they still find time to wish me well and tickle my funny bone! I enjoy demonstrating my best angles and poses in class - even when it feels like people are just looking straight through me. One day I might start my own Teaching journey, but tibia honest, – I just don’t have the guts.
