On Monday, a new studio opened on High Street Ken called Core Collective and we were really keen and excited to check it out. We booked in out first class (which is free) a week before the opening! The studio lived up to my expectation, just a five-minute walk from the station, the place was huge and the interior was incredible. It had the feeling of a boutique hotel; the reception has...

Vinyasa Flow at Evolve Wellness Centre

Shaleena and I signed up for a 1 week trial of ClassPass this week. We had planned on trying out around 5 classes during this time but after being completely annihilated after our session at Gym Class on Monday (see previous posts), we needed at least two full rest days!

(Yes, we also had no idea what it was until we saw a video on the Bootcamp Pilates Instagram account and thought we should give it a go!). The Freeform board is like a disc mounted onto a wheeled base, which allows it to...

Destination yoga is probably my favourite pastime. I love my local studio but something really wonderful happens when you take your practice outside and set it in front of a different backdrop. I think it really reinforces the idea that your practice is bigger than your asanas, and you really start to appreciate both the lesson and your surroundings.

On Saturday, I tried Yoga at the Shard with Yogasphere. It’s been on my wish list for a while but...
