If you’re a wellness warrior in 2021, you’re probably no longer satisfied with a bog standard exercise class. You’ve upped the experience factor and now look to move seamlessly from HIIT class to yoga (preferably to a live orchestra), with some healthy brunching inbetween – catered to a flexitarian diet of course. Thankfully, there is somewhere in London that is totally on your wavelength. We speak of Eccleston Yards. In August 2021, the urban oasis in the heart of Belgravia will host Wellness Weekenders, and see its famous courtyard transformed into an al fresco studio bringing together the trendiest concepts in wellness. Spread over two weekends on 14/15 and 21/22 August 2021, find a programme spanning everything from Yoga with a live orchestra to a Boxilates class with attitude, with a healthy dose of brunching along the way. We round up our favourite events…

Pets Yoga & Brunch
Pets Yoga followed by brunch at Wild by Tart | Eccleston Yards Wellness Weekenders

Pets Yoga, are passionate about pets and their mental and physical wellbeing. Experience gentle yoga with no balancing positions and cuddle time with furry guests.

All the pets are as free to move, play, tease and cuddle our attendees during the yoga session as part of their socialization learning process.
After your cuteness overload of Pets Yoga, enjoy a delicious brunch at Wild by Tart of Turkish poached eggs with sage & chilli butter, spinach, pine nuts & grilled sourdough, fresh juice, tea or coffee. All guests will dine together sharing plates style.
Yoga, Live Orchestra & Vegan BBQ
BALANCE presents: Yoga with a live orchestra & Vegan BBQ from Neat Burger
Saturday 21 August at 3pm
Enjoy a magical hour of yoga and acoustic vibes followed by a meat-free burger from the BBQ and a kombucha.
It’s hard to imagine a better setting for a yoga class. And while we all know about the physical benefits of a regular yoga practice, it’s the emotional effects that it has on our brains that really gives us mental clarity. Add a live orchestra and you have a unique approach to wellness.
This event will take you on a journey through different elements of sound, sensation and sequences. By the end of the class, you’ll feel energised, empowered and ready for a delicious plant based burger and Kombucha from Neat Burger.
What’s more, all attendees will receive a good bag packed with wellness and beauty goodies.
