Yoga. It’s one of the most popular ways to keep fit in London, and we’ve stumbled across some amazing new ways to try it.

But, if you’re tired of the whole stretch, breath, bend culture, we’ve come up with some amazing ideas to liven up your exercise routine. Whether yoga master or complete newcomer, these have to be tried once.
