Yoga classes have returned to the London Eye!

From downward-facing doggies to blissed-out babies, our latest series of yoga sessions on the London Eye has something for everyone

By Time Out in association with the London Eye

If you’ve found yourself emerging from winter in a slightly roly-polier state than when you entered it, don’t panic – you’re not the only one who’s been mainlining gravy since October. But now it’s spring, which means, when you’re not spinning through meadows with flowers in your hair, it’s time to slip into some Lycra, break a sweat and get those energy levels up.

And when we say ‘up’, we mean right up, 135 metres in the air. That’s right, after a sell-out stint last year, we’ve taken over the London Eye for another round of yoga classes with awe-inspiring views. This time round though, the programme is bigger and better than ever, with five different flavours of stretchy fun on offer – everything from traditional classes to super-sassy Voga and even the totally paw-some Doga. Whichever you pick, book your place today and you’ll be ready to bound into spring feeling bright-eyed and bushy tailed.

Struggling to find a dog-sitter while you pop out for a workout? No need – just bring your pup with you and introduce them to the furry mash-up of exercise and playtime that is Doga. Led by Doga pioneer (and ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ star) Mahny Djahanguiri and her terrier Robbie, classes take human-canine pairs through a series of poses designed to strengthen bonds and bring inner peace. It’s kind of like Crufts, except you do most of the work.
April 4. Tickets cost £25.

There are many reasons why having children is magical and wonderful, and the effect on your physical wellbeing definitely isn’t one of them. With the right tuition, though, that exhausting little bundle of joy becomes the perfect workout partner, as those who sign up for our parent-and-baby yoga sessions will discover. Led by experts from High Barnet’s Twisted Yoga and delivered in a relaxed atmosphere with space and time for feeding and changing, it’s the perfect way to bond with your babe.
April 2, 3 and 4. Parent-and-child tickets cost £30.

Ibiza Sunsets Yoga

Okay, so nobody’s pretending that central London comes close to the Balearics in terms of chill-out points. But when you’re soaring above the South Bank, gliding into warrior two as the sun dips below the horizon, well, it comes pretty damn close. These special hour-long, double-rotation sessions are timed with inspiring, dusky views in mind, and are set to the sort of mellow beats you’d expect to hear on an Ibizan roof terrace. In short, it’s the ultimate way to wind down after a day of batting away pass-agg emails.
April 8 and 9. Tickets cost £30.

A blissed-out stretch sesh can be as beneficial for the mind as it can for the body, and the views from the London Eye’s capsules are a damn sight more zen than the those of your average gym. Tuition comes from Hackney’s The Refinery, who’ll be leading a vinyasa flow-style class focused on flowing movements to help build strength and promote inner wellbeing.
April 2, 3 and 9. Tickets cost £25.


Expect to step back onto the South Bank feeling sassy to the point of invincibility after tackling this confidence-boosting class, led by the folks from The Refinery in Hackney. Taking its lead from the shape-throwing fashion phenomenon that is vogueing, Voga is all about perfecting your poise and inspiring personal empowerment, and is set to an up-tempo soundtrack of ’80s house tunes. The perfect opportunity for some creative pose-striking when it’s time for the in-capsule photo.
April 8 and 9. Tickets cost £25.
