Free Community Yoga Class

A free weekly class every Sunday 4-5pm. Aimed at those less able to afford to pay for yoga in a studio, but also for anyone who is tired of everything in London being just that bit too expensive!
We strongly encourage booking into this class (via our timetable below) but if this is problematic for you, for whatever reason, then please turn up 10 mins before the class start time and the teacher will accommodate  you.

Fitness Disco – A free inclusive classes for adults with learning disabilities

A free class every other Tuesday at 11am. Battling isolation through age and ability inclusive, fun fitness. Classes bring together participants with learning disabilities and/ or neurodiversity to try everything from battle ropes, to indoor rowing and boxing. We always finish the session with a dance so everyone leaves in a good mood!
Class is open to all but most participants visit us with their support workers from Hub Club Outward Housing and Look Ahead Care Home.

Sharing our space

We regularaly offer our studio and garden for free to community organisations, not for profits and all-round nice people to do cool stuff 😊 We’ve hosted everything from Big Yoga Club, Anti Diet Riot Club, to theatre rehearsals, and community dance rehearsals.

Funded by Strong + Bendy

In the last 5 years we have received a £1,000 grant from Wick Award which has helped us deliver some of the adult inclusive classes. Everything else is paid for out of our own profits. The impact we have on the local community is a key part of Strong + Bendy, as long as we are open we will seek to make fitness inclusive for the wonderful community we are in.
