Now that the lockdown restrictions are being lifted and we finally have more freedom, most of us are excited to finally spend more time outdoors. After a year of practicing yoga on your yoga mat inside your house, we can imagine you’re eager to join outdoor classes this summer. If you’re based in London, you’re not going to want to miss out on this blog, as we have gathered a list of the eight best outdoor yoga classes in the city for you to join. Now all we have to do is wait for the lovely weather to come out and we’re all ready to go.
1. Yoga Rise London
We’re starting the list off strong with yoga classes held on the rooftop of the Bussey Building in Peckham. What’s better than starting the day practicing yoga on a rooftop with a stunning view overlooking London? You can only imagine how magical that must feel during a sunrise or sunset.
2. Paola’s BodyBarre
For a great sweat, we highly recommend the outdoor classes by Paola’s BodyBarre. The classes combine pilates with strength, cardio, yoga and a bit of dancing, it’s very different from your usual yoga class. After the routine life we’ve lived during lockdown, it’s time to step out of your comfort zone and try something new.
3. Neverland London
If you’re a big lover of the beach, you’re definitely going to love these outdoor classes. Neverland London organises beach yoga classes in London this summer 2021. Every Saturday from 10.30 am, you can enjoy an hour long yoga practice with your feet in the sand. That will help you to start your weekend off on the right foot with immediate summer vibes.
4. Eccleston Yards
Perhaps you’re scared of heights which doesn’t make a rooftop yoga class sound like a great idea, we’ve got something that might interest you. At Eccleston Yards, you’ll be able to join outdoor yoga classes this upcoming summer where you can place your yoga mat in the lovely garden in the middle of London.
5. Paddleboarding on the Thames
This might not be yoga, but paddleboarding is getting increasingly popular and is a bit different from your usual workout session. Active 360 provides supping lessons on the Thames in London, where you can learn all the steps from their SUP experts. So no worries if you’ve never stood on a paddleboard before, you’re in safe hands!
6. South London Park Yoga
If you’re looking for a calm and peaceful place to practice yoga, you will love the outdoor yoga classes at Clapham Common. This park in the South of London is a bit quieter than the other parks in the city and is perfect for a relaxed yoga session. Every Monday evening at 6.45pm there will be an outdoor yoga practice this summer.
7. Yoga Hikes London
Yoga and Hiking is the perfect combination for a healthy, revitalising, enjoyable and friendly weekend break. You can sign up for the yoga hikes through Meet Up and this allows you to go on beautiful hikes with likeminded people. Alternate your hike with yoga breaks to keep you as fit as possible.
8. Yoga on the Summer Terrace
Finally, Yoga on the Summer Terrace in Islington Square will be hosting live outdoor yoga classes this season, with five top instructors. Starting from Monday June 21st, you’ll be able to join multiple yoga classes per week. The tickets can be bought on EventBrite.
