Last month I got up quite early and headed down from my neighboorhood to Central London hours before I had to be at the office. Why? I had booked spots to do Tower Bridge Yoga with two friends and the day had finally arrived! The formal name of the class is “Yoga in the Walkways’ which makes sense because it is not only on / at Tower Bridge but on the glass bridge 42 metres (or 138 feet) above the River Thames.
It was a chaotic morning of the subways not working so I was running quite late but luckily my friends had arrived on time (well, actually early) and saved me a mat and a spot on the glass! I had planned on arriving early to take a ton of photos but sometimes life does not work out that way an instead of being there well advance of the 7:15am call time I got there at 7:27am, only three minutes before the practice started. The instructor, Anja of Mojo Yard, could not have been nice enough though and quickly I was settled in and focused on my breathing.
I do not practice yoga a ton – spinning and HIIT classes are much more my thing – but I did enjoy this 50 minute Vinyasa flow session and it is true, the view could not really be beat! The only thing I did have trouble with was the balancing poses as usually I find a spot to focus on but out the windows you could see the river flowing and that definitely threw me off. Here are some of the shots I was able to capture at the end of the class and on my walk to work afterwards:
You can find more details here for Tower Bridge yoga or if you are ready to book, you can go straight here. (And no, this is not sponsored, I just had a great time and wanted to share it with all of you!) And note, this is different than the yoga that actually happened on the pavement of Tower Bridge a few weeks ago as part of the no car day in London!
Would you do Tower Bridge Yoga?
