Advent is here, which means it’s officially OK to play The Pogues on the radio, drink only liquids that have been mulled*, and get planning those Christmas parties. But in amongst the obligatory work bashes and get-togethers with your friends, make sure you get to one of these workout parties if you’re in the capital. London’s fitness scene has never come over so festive.
CHRISTMAS YOGA PARTY
5th Dec, Clapham
(Kelly Brooks Yoga)
This 90-minute class will be set to a festive playlist, then followed up with mulled wine and mince pies. All for only £10. Christmassy get-up is a must, so dig out that tinsel.
CALM BEFORE CHRISTMAS
6th Dec, Covent Garden
Feeling the panic rising about everything you’ve got to do before the 25th? This yoga workshop, £25, focuses on learning breathing techniques to help you keep a handle on stress as well as giving you chance to rest up and restore.
PSYCLE CHRISTMAS PARTY
10th Dec, nr Oxford Circus
A free festive spinning session with tunes from a live DJ, followed up with cold-pressed cocktails and healthy Christmas nibbles. Never before has going up for seconds been so saintly.
CHRISTMAS TINSEL PARTY
17th Dec, The Oval
Morning raves (yes, you read that right) are the latest trend to arrive from across the pond and see you bust some shapes in a nightclub first thing in the morning. This festive special from Morning Gloryville will include “wake up angels” offering free massages, superfood smoothies and coffees. A rave with an endorphin high in place of a come down. Merry Christmas!
*The occasional chaser of water is highly recommended.
