Looking to take your yoga practice to new heights? Sky Garden Yoga, will quite literally – 36 stories to be exact – lift you to a new level.
The Sky Garden, which is open to the public by a free ticketing system, is now hosting early morning yoga sessions. The Sky Garden hadn’t officially opened when we arrived for our class shortly after 6am, so the view across London and the garden was even more impressive in its hushed and whisper-loud state.
Unfortunately, that meant the outdoor viewing platform was closed, but the view from the inside was still wonderful – regardless of the sprinkling of rain that morning.
The yoga class, hosted by Charlie Morgan, was held up the stairs and to the back of the Sky Garden. That mean that you start off your practice focusing on the rooftops of the City of London and landmarks like the Gherkin, Tower 42 and the Heron Tower. The beady-eyed of us could just about see people making their way to their desks and switching on lights on each floor.
I regularly go to Charlie’s classes in Yoga Haven, Clapham so I knew we were in for a speedy, blood-pumping and challenging Vinyasa Flow class and it didn’t disappoint. We soon warmed up as the music started and we began our hour long practice in the clouds.
And there’s definitely no better way to come out of Savasana after a great class than looking up to the blue skies above and knowing you’re already well on your way to a productive day. If only every morning could be this great!
Sky Garden Yoga runs weekday classes at 6.30am throughout the summer. Tickets are £10 from Billetto and are well worth the early start! Don’t forget to bring a mat!
