RECOMMENDED: 37 ways to feel good in the city

Studio Lagree

Sport and fitness Yoga and Pilates Barbican

‘I love going to Studio Lagree to get my pilates hit. It’s not traditional pilates but the machine they use is wicked – you can hit so many different body parts. It’s amazing.’ Amy Desenberg, pilates instructor at E by Equinox and Move Your Frame

Base Dance Studios

‘I love the Heels and Feels class at Base Dance Studios. As a dude, it’s not often I get to tap into either of those things – so when I can, I’m there! Your legs and core will be dead for days after.’ Joelle D’Fontaine, instructor at At Your Beat

4 Tinworth St. Tube: Vauxhall. 


BLOK London

Skylab Studio

‘I train at aerial skills studio Skylab Studio in Camden Town with Iona. She helps students progress in advanced yoga poses like splits, backbends and handstands. Her classes are definitely a hidden gem!’ Melissa Re, yoga teacher at Workshop Gymnasium, KX and Blok 

25a Ferdinand St. Tube: Chalk Farm.



Sport and fitness Marylebone

‘BXR is a great studio. My favourite class is the Strength & Conditioning session. It has all the “let’s get beasted” vibes but not so much that you never want to go back.’ Charlotte Clarke, instructor at Move Your Frame and No1 Fitness

Pineapple Dance Studios

Sport and fitness Gyms and fitness centres Covent Garden
