Evening Yoga at Eccleston Yards

This summer’s outdoor yoga sessions at Belgravia’s Eccleston Yards have proved so popular that they promptly sold out. Lucky then, that they’ve just added an additional date to the line-up – book tickets now for the 7pm Vinyasa class on Thursday 29 August. Hosted by Phoebe Greenacre, founder of Silou London, a £15 ticket includes the class plus an SMUK London goodie-bag and a smoothie. Tickets at eventbrite.co.uk

Sunday Yoga at the Pavillion, Dulwich Picture Gallery

Enter the Colour Palace and take a yoga class that focusses on a specific theme reflecting the Pavilion’s structure. A ticket also includes a tea or coffee from the cafe, and entry to the Picture Gallery’s current exhibition Cutting Edge: Modernist British Printmaking. Sunday 11 August and Sunday 1 September, 8.45-9.45am yoga followed by exhibition view, tickets £25 dulwichpicturegallery.org.uk

Free Saturday morning Yoga on the River at Re:Centre
