Lambeth celebrates International Yoga Day

Celebrate ‘International Yoga Day’ at Clapham Leisure Centre on Tuesday 21 June 2022. This annual celebration recognises the physical and spiritual prowess that yoga has brought to the world stage.

Yoga is a mind-body workout that flexes and strengthens joints and muscles as you go. Did you know you can burn around 280 calories per hour in a standard session?

Benefits of yoga

  •  Build a stronger core and work your muscles from head to toe
  • Achieve a meditative state of mind and greater wellbeing
  • Relieve aching joints and muscles
  • Encourage your body’s natural healing abilities

What equipment will you need?

The centre provides mats, blocks and other yoga equipment or you can use your own. Move comfortably in your yoga class by wearing light, stretchy and supportive clothing. A towel will be handy for those humid hot yoga sessions, and please bring a bottle of water with you – you can fill up around the centre.

What classes will be available to book?

We offer all customers and members an opportunity to try out a wide range of low-impact ‘International Yoga Day’ classes.
