Yoga and Pilates in funky places around London

I’m on a mission to attend yoga and pilates classes in unusual locations and the most iconic buildings in London. Rooftops, museums, top floors of London skyscrapers, stores, bars, clubs – you name it I want to plank there.

London is filled with yoga teachers who host classes in these weird and wonderful locations. We have iconic modern buildings with names like The Gherkin, The Shard, The Walkie-Talkie building, The Cheesegrater and The Vase, as well as historic museums, bridges and public spaces.  London is just littered with amazing places and spaces to explore.

In this blog I will share with you my experience, and of course photos, of attending pop-up yoga and pilates classes in the most funky places around London.

Here is a list of unconventional places to do yoga or pilates, some (hopefully most) of which I will attend and then review:
