Yoga goes underground this June!
London commuters will get a big dose of zen during a yoga and wellbeing takeover in Old Street Station this June.
Good Yoga Life is taking over one of London’s busiest stations for a week of classes and events with some of London’s top yoga and wellbeing experts. The week-long event in Old Street Station aims to positively interrupt the daily commute and offer commuters some much needed zen.
Shoreditch commuters will join Annie Clarke (Mind Body Bowl), Julie Montagu (The Flexi Foodie), Jody Shield (Life Tonic), Adam Husler (Boys of Yoga), Cat Meffan (Adidas), Marcus Veda (Yotopia), Emily-Clare Hill (Lululemon), Steffy White (Soho House & instructor to Deliciously Ella), Addictive Daughter & many more as part of a week-long takeover from 20-26 June.
The event also includes London’s first ever 12hr Yoga-Relay, which will see up to 400 people raise money for homelessness charity Shelter on Saturday 25 June.
70k commuters pass through Old Street Station every day, tired, stressed and not at all present. Research shows we’re one of the most affected European cities when it comes to transport disruption and as a result mental wellbeing is affected the most. Last year a survey of more than 5.5k commuters in London, Rome, Barcelona, Berlin, Madrid and Paris found that some rate the worry and strain of the commute to work on a par with a relationship breakdown – and often worse than the job itself.
This week-long takeover offers a real opportunity to alleviate the stress of daily London commuting and get more people involved in yoga.
