Yoga at Hotpod Yoga Hackney
What: A portable hot yoga concept in an inflatable pod. The 60 minute active flow class housed in an otherworldly setting is a great place to work off a hangover, clear an over-stimulated mind or open up an office-bound body. The style of class is an active vinyasa flow heated to 37 degrees – not as hot as Bikram, but still pretty warm.
Where: 1st floor of 9 – 15 Helmsley Place. Take the black metal stairs on the front of the building all the way to the top where the door should be open. If not, there’s a class still in action.
Tip: The studio has a shower and changing areas.
Price: Single class £14.00 (check for intro offers)
