Brilliant views and brilliant vibes were on offer at the iconic The O2 earlier this summer. Up at The O2 hosted a number of sky-high yoga sessions at its world-famous roof venue back in May to mark Mental Health Awareness Week.

Along with a guided climb up and over the roof of the popular music and entertainment venue, climbers got to enjoy extended sky time with a 20-minute yoga class at the summit.

The classes were hosted by Lucy Sesto, a former Great Britain acrobatic gymnast who has channelled her passion for movement into a career as a yoga teacher. As well as teaching public classes and online via The Body Class app she also hosts retreats, in the UK and abroad.

With its highest point at 52m above ground level, yogis got to enjoy incredible 360° views of Greenwich, Canary Wharf and the Olympic Park – all the while raising funds for The O2's official charity YoungMinds, which supports children and young people's mental health.

"Yoga has undeniable benefits for our mental health, and we're proud to be donating all proceeds from these climbs to our official venue charity YoungMinds, who do vital work for young people and families all over the country," said Dan Hurst, head of attractions at Up at The O2.
