Wednesday 31st March – Covid Camp Lower Body – 18:00 – 18:45
Legs eleven are up next in this lower body blast. With lockdown pummelling our mental and physical health this class will bring ourselves back to our former glories. Sitting all day in kitchen chairs, upon sofas, or perched precariously on stools, has loosened our glutes and played havoc with our lower back. Hit reset and push yourself as hard as you’d like in a class that boosts dopamine levels and lower body health.

Thursday 1st April – Open Level Vinyasa Flow – 12:30 – 13:15
Clissold Park, Stoke Newington
This is no April’s Fool! This is peaceful vinyasa yoga with a flow to restore your get-up and GO. Time to soak up the vitamin D. Breathe in peace. Exhale some chaos. This session starts with a meditation followed by sequences strung together by a theme and intention.
Simone Topel is a free spirit. Her yoga training took place in Rishikesh in India, and since then she has studied mindfulness class after class.

Early morning core workout without the distractions. This is 45 minutes of dedicated YOU time. Ditch the morning coffee and tick off exercise before the day begins. This session focuses on strengthening and toning the core – something your back will thank you for later.

Shuntao Li trained in the Alpujarra mountains in Spain and now excels in slow vinyasa flow and ashtanga classes for everyone. Her classes are accessible, fun, and so relaxing, probably because she is also a yoga nidra (yogic sleep) and meditation teacher.
Sunday 4th April – HIIT The Mat – 10:00 – 10:45
Wanstead Park, Redbridge
Bodyweight HIIT session to toast some calories, tone up, and build muscle. The power of HIIT never fades – championed as the most efficient workout out there, it raises the heartbeat, reduces the blood sugars and blood pressure, and keeps your body burning fat stores long after you’ve left the workout.
