Looking for a Gym in Hackney for Yoga Classes

Finding a good place in East London where you can take yoga classes can be quite a hassle. There are so many things that can spoil the fun. Let’s just start with entirely over-crowded yoga and fitness classes that personally cannot stand.

Then there are those studios where it’s obvious that there trainers are not in the slightest qualified. I had attended yoga classes where it seemed to me that the “yoga teacher” had been a student that learned all his knowledge from a book just the day before.

So a competent trainer is definitely my main criteria when I am looking for a Hackney gym or yoga classes in East London.

I don’t know for how long I was looking in the area, but ultimately decided on London Fields Fitness.

In my opinion this is one of the best gyms in East London. I like that they offer many different yoga and fitness classes and their trainers are always competent, nice and helpful.

If you know some more good gyms in Hackney, let me know! I’d be excited to hear about your experience in East London.

The Notting Hill Carnival 2015


This year, London’s Notting Hill Carnival 2015 will be held on Sunday, August 30 ’til Monday, August 31.

The event will take place on the upcoming bank holiday weekend and organisers are expecting more than 1 million people to attend.

The official start of this year’s Notting Hill Carnival will be on Sunday with a “Family Day ” programme. The festivities will start as early as 6 o’clock in the morning. So it be a good idea if you set your alarm clocks if you don’t want to miss anything!

After the opening ceremony there will be a children’s parade where children in costumes will weave through Notting Hill’s Street. Needless to say there will be performances and music everywhere along with food and drink.

The family day on the first day of the festival might be the best if you want to visit the festival with small children. But you should be prepared, it can get very crowded!
