Yoga at the Sky Garden

Sky High Yoga

Whilst most people we’re enjoying a nice bank holiday lie in on Saturday, I was up bright and early and in my yoga gear. No, I wasn’t just being a bit weird and heading to the gym at 7.30am. The lovely Freya (from Frey De Fleur) invited me along to try the Sky High Yoga, at the Sky Garden.

An opportunity not to be missed however tempting my bed was that morning. It was my first time at the Sky Garden and what a way to experience it!

The yoga class itself was an Ashtanga class, I would say it was roughly an intermediate level class so I would suggest having at least some yoga experience before you head along. Saying that however, the teacher was very good at giving different variations for the difficult postures, although it was quite fast paced so some knowledge of the vocabulary is helpful to avoid having to look around you all the time.

Of course the appeal of this class isn’t necessarily the yoga itself, but the setting. Although it was an unfortunately foggy day, the view was still outstanding. Urban yoga classes will never be the same! Although looking down on London, one of the busiest cities in the world, isn’t always peaceful; the City of London on a Saturday morning is normally eerily quiet, and there was something so serene about looking down on the almost empty streets below.

If you’re just in the market for a great yoga class, then I wouldn’t recommend this. It was enjoyable, but it’s hard to focus on practice when people walk through, and it’s so busy. But like I mentioned already, that isn’t the appeal of this class at all. If you want a trip to the sky garden, before the crowds descend, or to experience it in a very new, and peaceful way then I would highly recommend Sky High Yoga!

Sky high yoga Freya, and I stayed around for some smoothies in the Cafe afterwards. Not only were they delicious but I was very impressed with the prices, as for some reason I always presumed it would be extremely expensive due to the location, and the fact that entry to the Sky Garden is free. It’s definitely worth sticking around after the class for a coffee or smoothie to take in the amazing views and be surrounded by the amazing greenery of the garden.

If yoga isn’t your thing, then I would recommend a trip to the Sky Garden anyway. I expected to be underwhelmed (things never look as good in real life as they do on instagram) but I really wasn’t. It was beautiful, quite peaceful, and lovely place to catch up with a friend.

    This sounds like an incredible opportunity, but I definitely don’t feel confident enough in my yoga skills to do it in that public a setting yet!

    • haha, I get so paranoid doing yoga at home that people on the bus can look in and see me! You should definitely try and go, they hold them all the time, and it’s £10 a class, so really not that expensive! xx
