Are you brave enough to do yoga 138ft above the city of London? If so, this event is for you.

Beginning Monday, February 16th, London-based yoga teacher Billie Woodcraft will deliver a series of energetic vinyasa classes on the glass floors of the Tower Bridge, 138ft above the Thames. This exclusive set of energizing yoga classes will allow participants of all abilities to practice on the Tower Bridge’s new glass floor.

Intended to ease road traffic while maintaining river access to the docks, the Tower Bridge was designed by architect Sir Horace Jones and civil engineer Sir John Wolfe Barry. The bridge took 8 years to complete and was opened June 30th 1894. The Tower Bridge Exhibition has told the history of the bridge since 1982. The new glass floor is the most significant improvement to the Tower Bridge Exhibition since it’s opening.

But don’t worry; you won’t fall through the glass while you’re flowing through your sun salutations. Each glass panel is engineered to withstand the weight of one elephant and two black cabs.

These unique yoga classes start at 7:30am, but students are encouraged to arrive by 7:15am. Mats will be provided if necessary, but in order to maximise the experience on the new glass floor, it is recommended to use gripped gloves and socks. Each class will run for approximately 50 minutes, ending at 8:20am. This is a great way to kick-start your work day.

This experience is intended to revitalise Londoners with an exciting and never-seen-before view from inside the most famous bridge in the world. Participating yogis may even witness the magic of the Bridge’s famous bascules raising for a river vessel.

Cost: £15.00 per person

Time: 07.30am – 08.20am (arrivals by 7.15am)

Places are limited so book now to avoid disappointment.
