If you want that VIP body but get bored of the traditional ways of working out then I have news about something that is going to make you reach for your sports kit.
Taking exercise to new heights, I’ve just got back from a yoga class on top of the glass walkway on Tower Bridge.
I was on a glass walkway 138ft above the Thames (41 metres) while boats, cars and pedestrians were going about their business below me. At the start, I felt really squeamish but I was assured the walkways original steel lattice structure has been preserved under the glass so I wouldn’t fall to my death in a downward dog.
Although when I sat on the floor, I did wonder if people were looking up at my bottom!
It was part of a class led by Billie Woodcraft, an experienced yoga teacher with her own business, Billie’s Yoga.
The classes are kept small so we could all fit on the 11 metres long glass walkway and meant Billie could check we were in the right position (as you can see below)
This is what it’s possible to do (if you’re more flexible than me)
If you want to get involved (which I highly recommend) then Book your spot on the Tower Bridge website.
Four classes were initially scheduled for February 16, February 23, March 2, March 9, but sold out within days. However, more sessions have now been scheduled for February 18, February 25, March 4, and March 11.
Classes begin at 7.30am and last 50 minutes.
