If you don't know where your local classes are, there are various websites for finding classes. The British Wheel of Yoga (the largest yoga membership organisation in the UK) has a class finder for its members. You could also try Class Finder.

The Satyananda Yoga Centre, Balham is one of the longest established yoga centres in London, having been founded by Swami Pragyamurti in the early 1970s, who still teaches there.
