EDIT: Rooftop Yoga Peckham has now finished. We have relocated to Yorkshire and as far as we are aware there are no yoga sessions at Bold Tendencies in 2016. You can see the photos from 2013 and 2014 at www.rooftopyogapeckham.co.uk.
We had a wonderful time teaching in such a special place, and would like to thank everyone that brought their yoga to the roof, and the incredible helpers and teachers we worked with.
The story of Rooftop Yoga Peckham…
Posted: July 13 2013
When I first set out to run rooftop Dru Yoga classes in Peckham I certainly didn’t expect to be teaching in 30°c heat and under stunning clear blue skies! In fact a few people sniggered at me when I told them about the idea. But what an amazing time we have had the last two Saturdays, up high above the streets of south east London, basking in this joyful weather.
It feels like we are all sharing a special treat as we make our way up to the roof, the yoga mats shining in the sun, the view – and London – stretching out before us.
I couldn’t have asked for a more magical way to start my new adventure in yoga. Having left the desk job just four short weeks ago, I am delighted to be embracing this finest of London summers. And with such a lovely group of people joining me on the roof each week, I have a grin from ear to ear.
We’ve worked with our inner warriors and our breath. We’ve danced the beautiful Natarajasana, saluted north, south, east and west, and rested in Savasana under the warm embrace of a sun we see all too little in the UK.
The forecast for the next few weeks is good, and it looks like we might hold on to our summer secret for a while longer yet, but whatever happens in the skies* we’ll be there in the car park doing yoga each week until 14 September.
If you would like to join us again next summer make sure you are signed up to my mailing list
*we can go undercover if necessary
