My place

Yogi: Eva Kristlova
Photographer: Sarah Carmody
Location: Birling Gap, East Sussex, England

Birling Gap is a special place on the south coast of England, not far from Eastbourne, nestled between the Seven Sisters and Beachy Head. “The breathtaking sunsets that you witness here are simply stunning, as well as the dramatic backdrop of the chalk cliffs and the wild beaches with rock pools during the low tide,” says yogini Eva Kristlova. It’s the perfect destination for swimmers, surfers and yogis alike — and with lots of history thrown in too (pirates!). “We are lucky that this hidden gem is right on our doorstep. A trip to Birling Gap always brings something special. The golden hour is my favourite time of the day and the photographer [Sarah Carmody] captured the scenery and the sunset perfectly. You always feel recharged and inspired after the visit. Being in nature, and especially here, can be a very powerful and healing experience.”
