Things lately

Its been a busy week in London! Here’s a glimpse of what I’ve been up to:

Free yoga in Hyde Park

On Saturday I grabbed a place at a free yoga class in Hyde Park, put on by Lululemon in collaboration with a new spa called Como Shambala. 70 lulu mats were laid out ready but you were welcome to bring your own mat if they were full.

The class was taken by Adam (Hemsley?) from boys of yoga and I loved it! It was a super strong flow with plenty of core, glutes and bits of martial arts mixed in. I hadn’t been to that kind of class in quite some time so admit I struggled a little bit felt so good afterwards.

The only thing to watch out for is try to get a mat in the shade! It was a sunny day and the mats became hot to touch towards the end.

After class Como Shambala put on smoothies and snacks in the Met hotel opposite. It was a great spread and I felt very lucky to be there.

Wine tasting at Bedales of Borough Market

My friend is a wine expert at Bedales and invited a couple if us to one of a series of wine tasting sessions she is running. For £30 you get generous samples of several wines and delicious cheese and charcuterie platters. No pictures as it was an intimate group of 16 and it felt a bit awkward to take photos but the venue was beautiful (in the space above the bar) and everything was lovely.

Dinner at Slemani, Edgware Road

I love Edware Road and this Kurdish Iraqi restaurant was pretty great. The portions were massive and the chicken platter Ben and I shared was delicious. We also got some dips, falafel and stuffed vine leaves to share. We were very full by the end.
