Yoga under the blue whale skeleton at the Natural History Museum

My Sunday morning was a bit surreal. I was at the Natural History Museum London at 7:30 and walked into the Hintze Hall as the very first visitor for the day – before the doors open to the public. To do yoga. Under a blue whale skeleton hanging from the ceiling. How amazing is that?!…

The OM Yoga Show London was held at Alexandra Palace from 18 to 20 October 2019. It was my first time visiting the biggest yoga gathering in Europe, and one of the largest events in the world. They are not kidding. It’s big and there is a lot going on! I was lucky enough to…

Yoga at the Design Museum

Yesterday was another yoga first for me: I did yoga in the atrium of a museum. To be specific, the Design Museum in London. It’s a beautiful building with many interesting angles and lines and the yoga was really enjoyable. The Design Museum atrium is just small enough that you can hear the instructor and…

A weird and wonderful walk to work

I was feeling very energised this morning after my morning Sworkit workout (I’m still on track with the September challenge of 30 workouts over 30 days!), and it’s an amazingly beautiful Autumn day here in London, so I thought I’d walk to work from Waterloo station along the south bank of the Thames. Three things…

Puppy Yoga

I have definitive proof that heaven is a place on earth and it’s filled with yoga mats and puppies. Best of all, you don’t even have to die to get to heaven. Do what I did – pay £35 to Pets Yoga and do yoga with five Toy Cockapoo puppies. My husband and I have…

Yoga in the Sky Garden

Affectionately known as the Walkie Talkie Building, 20 Fenchurch Street is an office building in City of London with a beautiful surprise. Its top three floors hold London’s highest public garden.

Learning to trust the whispers of your Inner Voice

I recently had an experience where an unexplainable bad feeling, gut instinct, warning from my Inner Voice, spirit guidance, guardian angel stepping in – call it what you like – stopped me from going to a yoga class. Yup, a yoga class. I would never know why  it was better that I didn’t go to yoga that…

Yoga on the roof of Coq d’Argent

Thursday mornings at 07:45 Jessica Skye of Fat Buddha Yoga teaches Rise’n’shine yoga on the roof terrace of Coq d’Argent, the french restaurant at 1 Poultry. If you think that sounds cool, it is. The roof terrace isn’t very big, but it’s green, it’s a roof, you can see the sky for miles and it…

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 yogis who host classes in these weird and wonderful locations. They are…

Yoga on the Madison roof terrace

Two days before my 42nd birthday I was out of the house at 05:35 to be on time for a 07:00 yoga class on the roof terrace of Madison, a restaurant at One New Change shopping centre near St. Pauls.  Yes it’s early, but man it was worth it! Sophie of Sophie Dear Yoga hosts…
