Join BALANCE at Eccleston Yards’ Wellness Weekenders event this August!
It’s summer, it’s festival time and, for London folks, there’s no need to travel anywhere else to get your kicks – the best fitness and wellness festival is right on your doorstep, with the brand new Wellness Weekenders at Eccleston Yards. Slap bang in the middle of central London, the stunning, serene courtyard destination in Belgravia will host this brand new event over two weekends – 14th & 15th August and 21st-22nd August. The courtyard will also play host to a special BALANCE event on Saturday 21 August – and we can’t wait to see you there!
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
The Eccleston Yard’s community of wellbeing brands are coming together to offer you everything from hula hooping classes to puppy yoga (yup, you read that right). Need we tempt you any further? (because what could be better in life than yoga with puppies?) Alas, there’s more. How about an al-fresco lift class from iconic fitness club Barry’s, outdoor Pilates from The Light Centre, or a running workshop with Run and Become?
If you fancy a more sedate festival experience, you could opt to take part in a mindful painting session from MasterPeace (Dragon’s Den devotees will have spotted founder Zena Farra on the show touting her concept). Or how about some crystal bowl sound healing with meditation studio Re: Mind?
And all that activity is hungry work, so it’s lucky for us that Eccleston Yards is home to some brilliant holistic eateries. Grab yourself a Columbian coffee at Latin American café Morena, a great brunch at Wild by Tart from their vegan-friendly menu, or an energy boosting plant-powered takeaway bowl from atis.
There’s therapy of the retail variety, too – on both Sundays, Eccleston Yards Market will have a wellness themed takeover, offering everything from foodie treats to sustainable activewear from independent, artisan businesses.
BALANCE PRESENTS: YOGA WITH A LIVE ORCHESTRA: Saturday 21 August
After some 18 months since our last event, we are thrilled to team up with Eccleston Yards to bring you a magical hour of yoga and acoustic vibes on Saturday 21 August. The immersive yoga session will be led by friend of BALANCE, Hannah Jackson, who has taught yoga for six years and draws on her previous experience as a dancer as well as her love for physical movement and the play and exploration that they invite.
Accompanied by glorious live music that will take you on a sensory journey of movement, sound and storytelling, there’s no better time to celebrate summer and open our hearts to friends, to freedom and to a new world. The musicians and movement are designed to transport you away from memories of lockdown life, to take you to a place where anxieties are released and hearts are open to the joys already surrounding us and those which are yet to come.
The 60-minute fluid yoga practise will combine elements of mindfulness, culminating in a short meditation at the end to leave you feeling super calm and ready for the rest of your weekend. This session is equally suitable for established yogis or those who are taking their first steps into yoga – it’ll be the perfect antidote for what has been a challenging time for all.
By the end of the class, you’ll feel energised, empowered and ready for a delicious plant based burger and Kombucha from Neat Burger. What’s more, all attendees will receive a goody bag packed with wellness and beauty treats to support your wellbeing. Don’t miss out – reserve your mat now! Book here
