Yoga in the Yards

2019-04-29-Yoga-in-the-Yards-main.jpg


Fitness and fashion combine with seriously stylish results in Belgravia’s boutiques. Designed with yoga and barre classes in mind, the Phoebe unitard from Silou London costs £189, by appointment at the brand’s Eaton Mews West showroom and online.

Yogis are well catered for in the new wellness destination of Eccleston Yards, with both Re:Mind and newly opened Hotpod offering classes for a range of abilities. While Re:Mind is primarily a meditation studio, it does host evening yin yoga sessions, a slower paced style where individual poses are held for between three to five minutes. And of course classes end with a proper guided meditation in savasana.

For Bikram fans who want to work up a sweat, Hotpod is the place to do it. Vinyasa classes take place inside an inflatable pod, which can easily be deflated and thoroughly cleaned, making it more hygienic than traditional hot studios. The cocoonlike environment of the pod makes for an oddly nurturing atmosphere, and it smells divine thanks to Hotpod’s signature blend of aromatherapy oils, which can also be purchased to take home at the front desk.

Both studios offer classes that can be booked on a drop-in basis, although regulars might like to sign up for monthly membership (from £40) at Hotpod.
