And much of that is thanks to finally discovering the best yoga studio I’ve been to. Yogarise Peckham was set up by Peckham locals – husband and wife, Emma and Sean at the Bussey Building by Peckham Rye station. They offer a variety of classes taught by some incredible teachers. There is a practice for literally everyone, from mum and baby yoga to the classic Ashtanga and Rocket – which, just FYI, will definitely leave you dripping with sweat and aching all over. In a good way.
It’s a completely chilled out environment where there is no judgement – and you can take my word for that because while I’m struggling to forward bend further than 90 degrees and the person next to me is in a headstand while doing the splits and spinning plates with their feet (ok, slight exaggeration but you get the gist), I never feel self conscious. Because it’s not about touching your toes, it’s about what you learn on the way down.
