Are you bored of the usual gym-based yoga classes? I know I am. I’m in dire need to step up my yoga game as lately I’ve been utterly detached from my yoga practice because it doesn’t get me as excited as before. I want something new!
And where’s the best place to experience yoga in a totally new perspective? Right here in the city of London.
You can attend free yoga classes in many parks of the city, which is great during summer. You can even have a go at shoulder stands inside hotpods set up on various rooftops. There’s so much going on. I’m sure you’ll find something in the city that tickles your fancy.
Here’s a roundup of the five coolest yoga classes in London. These should totally go on your bucket list…
The world’s highest yoga class, at The View from the Shard
Definitely not one for those with a fear of heights, the highest yoga classes in the world at over 1,000 ft high give you serious stunning views of the city that stretch out for 40 miles.
Cost: £40 (including goodie bag and viewing time before and after the class)

Yoga across the glass floor, at Tower Bridge
Enjoy a unique London experience with Tower Bridge’s sunrise yoga classes across the newly unveiled glass floor of its high-level Walkways, 42 metres above the River Thames. How cool is it that you can see all the traffic underneath you?! Bonus points if the bridge rises while you’re in the class. More dates will be added soon due to high demand – no wonder!

Yoga at the the ArcelorMittal Orbit, East London
Another high-rise yoga class which may be a little more convenient if you live in East London. You have gorgeous panoramic views of the Olympic Park and you can see Canary Wharf’s skyscrapers peaking in the horizon. An epic sunrise view I must say!
