Do this…

Break free from the studio and take your yoga practice to the great outdoors.

  • Kensington Gardens. Practice sun salutations in front of the palace and watch as the park comes alive and mother nature gets to work.
  • Richmond Park. Big enough to find your own private sanctuary, try deep breathing exercises followed by some meditation amongst the wildlife.
