These days are the longest, so make the most of it and find the extra time to look after yourself and your health. Below are our BUA best-sellers for this week. See you there!
Mon 21st June – Metcon Monday – 18:00 – 18:30
Live & Online
Start looking forward to Mondays. Metcon is short for metabolic conditioning – a workout that takes your HIIT to the next level. A specialist session where you exert yourself over a prolonged amount of time to reap the best benefits of strength and cardio. Ideal for those who have hit a training plateau or want to get a super-efficient workout in fast. One of the best methods for weight loss (if that’s your goal – though we believe that every body is a perfect body) as it attacks different muscle groups and boosts the metabolism.
The Bee-fit boys, Coach Harrison and Coach Dean, believe in the power of community and making fitness fun. Their classes are just another source of entertainment, like a series on Netflix, except that you get in the best shape of your life whilst viewing.
Tues 22nd June – Hello Morning Barre – 07:00 – 07:45
Live & Online
This is interval cardio, tone and HIIT. The top 5 changes you’ll notice in your barre journey, 1) your strength increasing as it envelopes you into a well rounded toning workout. 2) Better posture which means better balance. The class will bring your attention to how you present yourself and you’ll learn to quit slouching, take up space and stand tall. You’ll be very aware of your posture on a daily basis going forward. 3) Prolonged calorie burn. You’ll keep burning long after the class has finished. 4) Greater flexibility which will reduce injury and aid mobility in later life. 5) Exceptional mental stamina as poses demand it.
Grace Ker believes you may want to murder her in the first few minutes of class but assures us that afterwards you’ll grow to love her. Laughter is her fave core exercise, followed by barre.
Weds 23rd June – Feel The Flow – 17:15 – 18:15
Live & Online
Hatha yoga – the perfect type of yoga to welcome in the longest days of the year and for starting afresh from the mercury in retrograde which ended yesterday. If you’ve been feeling anxious, scatter-brained and not altogether wholly there, come find and set some intentions with Helen. Hatha yoga is a balancing act – it literally means the ‘sun’ and the ‘moon’ and focuses on moves that compliment and push one another.
Helen Barefoot found solace in yoga 10 years ago in a local London class. From there she embarked upon yoga teacher training in the Himalayas and reinforces her practice with chanting, philosophies, and intentions that’ll transform the way you live.
Thurs 24th June – Open Level Vinyasa Flow – 12:30 – 13:15
Every body is a yoga body. Come and join this flow class (where poses are stringed together in sequences for maximum effect) whether you’re new to yoga or a yoga guru. Expect to move seamlessly through the sequences as you align your breath and mind to the flow.
Simone Topel makes yoga accessible to all. She lives by yoga pioneer, Desikachar’s mantra, “The success of yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures, but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships.” She is specially trained in treating depression with yoga and yoga for runners. Please drop her a message if you think she could help you further.
Friday 25th June – Beginners Ballet Class – 11:00 – 12:00
Live & Online
60 minutes of ballet for those wanting to dip their toes into something brand new. When you learn something new you actively create new connections in-between your neurons. Take this class and you’ll boost your neuroplasticity and your body’s flexibility. Re-wire your noggin and re-wire the way you move in one class.
Star Eddy is a professional dancer in ballet, contemporary dance, jazz and tap. When she’s not ripping up a dance floor, she’s also a Pilates instructor.

Cator Park, nr Blackheath
60 minutes of gentle yoga movement. This is all about going slow and taking the time to appreciate what you’ve got – a body that moves, a brain that battles on, and the ability to made very good decisions – like taking this class.
Shuntao Li trained in the Alpujarras 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.
