YOUR YOGA CITY
A city for selfies, London’s landmarks mean there’s no need to travel far and wide to feed your yoga Instagram addiction
London contains some of the most iconic architecture in the world — and you can bet yoga is being done there. There aren’t too many pics to prove it but we happen to know that yoga goes on inside the Houses of Parliament, arguably the capital’s finest building of all. While you’re not likely to get an invite anytime soon for yoga at the House of Commons (let’s face it, though, we’d all be pretty happy if our MPs can keep quiet for a bit!), there are still plenty of cool public classes available in some of London’s great landmarks. That includes occasional classes inside the Natural History Museum, high up at the top of The Shard, or in the Sky Garden, set among the luscious tropical greenery with a backdrop of incredible city views some 36 storeys high.
London structure recognised right around the globe. Designed to help revitalise and recharge, the early morning classes, which take place on the glass walkways 138 feet above the Thames, are open to all abilities and run this year on the third Wednesday of each month through to December 18.
It’s an incredible city and an incredible place to do yoga. Who needs to travel to Bali or Hawaii for their Instagram-worthy yoga selfies?
