Immerse yourself in nature with a yoga class at Penguin Beach!

The Setting

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and step into our haven of nature and wildlife for a moment of calm. Ground yourself on a yoga mat with a view of our colony of over 60 Humboldt penguins swimming and enjoying their evening. Class starts once our Zoo is closed, so you can relax in the quiet and stillness that bears only the surrounding sounds of wildlife, under a canopy of greenery. Time is made available for you to enjoy the setting and see the penguins up close before the class begins.

The Class

A one-hour vinyasa yoga class delivered by East of Eden 7, the class flows with the rhythms of nature, so that you can fully immerse in where you are. We welcome people of all abilities; from those who have never tried yoga before to experienced yogis who want to try something a little different. All you need is a water bottle and yoga mat.

To top off your evening, our zookeeper and presenter will feed the penguins whilst they tell you a little bit more about the incredible Humboldt penguin - did you know that they don't come from the Antarctic, but from the temperate coastline of Peru and Chile? Or that penguins are incredibly inquisitive animals with distinct individual personalities? There will be an opportunity at the end to ask our experts lots of questions too!

Please note that in case of wet weather, the location may be changed to an indoor venue at the Zoo's Outback where you will be overlooking our wallabies and emus. A talk and feed will still be included with our Aussie species.

London Zoo is a ZSL conservation zoo. By booking onto our yoga class, you will actively be supporting our charitable work in conserving species all over the world.
